Flying Fossils is a poignant first peek into a family's triumph over tragedy. The entire Women of Fossil Ridge Series sparkles with humor, heart, and small town southern charm.
Twenty-five years ago, the Slocum women buried their mother-daughter relationship in the Frio river and went their separate ways. Sara and Charlotte pretend a weekly long-distance call can fulfill their obligation to each other until the day Sara breaks her hip. Now Charlotte must drop everything and fly to Texas. Charlotte's short-term caregiving plans are dashed when she realizes her aging mother needs long-term care. While Sara struggles to regain her independence, Charlotte grapples with the impossible task of juggling a slightly demented mother, a high-pressure job, and a rebellious teenager daughter.
If these two women can't release the fossilized secret sandwiched between them, the next generation will never fly.
The Women of Fossil Ridge Series is a touching addition to the small town, generational series of favorite authors like Ann B. Ross, Jan Karon, and Beth Hoffman.
