Twenty-five years ago, the Slocum women buried their close mother-daughter relationship in the Frio River and went their separate ways. Sara and Charlotte pretend their weekly long-distance call fulfills their family obligation until Sara falls and 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 high-pressure job, a rebellious teenage daughter, and a slightly demented mother.
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.
