“What would happen if I just kept driving?”
Moms aren’t supposed to have a life of their own, at least that’s what Becca Thompson believes. Between dealing with her youngest’s never ending tantrums, her teenager’s attitude and her ailing father’s rapidly failing memory, Becca doesn’t have time to worry about who she used to be.
Deep down, Becca knows she wants more than the daily chaos and the quick fixes her self-help books have to offer, but when her husband starts demanding more, the pressure proves to be too much. On the way to pick up her daughter, she makes the split second decision to take a different exit off the freeway and drives towards the mountains leaving her crumbling life in the rear-view mirror.
Fleeing to a remote mountain town, Becca knows she must rediscover her spirit, even if reconnecting with herself comes at the expense of everything she left behind.

Reading this book made me realize that many of us mothers and wives do get lost in that stressful life. I just didn’t know that when I was going through it. Now I can forgive myself for yearning to find a way out of depression. Husbands should read at least part of this book.
This book was hard to continue reading. I think partially because of her husband & the littlest child. So glad I persevered. The ending was very rewarding!
Did not like the main character, Becca, at all. Huge whiner and entirely self absorbed. Lots of errors in book. Both grammar and storyline. The author offers several books for free but I am not going to bother.
