“A heartwarming story of a parent-child relationship, Around the Bend explores moments of bonding and celebrates the potential for healing wounded relationships—especially those between mothers and daughters.” – Lakes Magazine, May 2010
Around the Bend
Thelma and Louise they’re not.
First of all, Hilary and Rosemary Delaney are not friends–worse, they’re mother and daughter. Hilary’s a wayward thirty-something running from a marriage proposal, and Rosemary’s her disapproving mother, a retired lawyer who can’t drive and won’t fly.
So they’re driving together across country.
In a cherry-red Mustang.
With a potbellied pig named Reginald, and a life-size cutout of Rosemary’s late husband.
Should be a fun trip.
As the miles tick by, Hilary ponders why the word “marriage” has her so terrified and finds she’s got a lot to learn–about her mother, love and life in general. Together, Hilary and Rosemary will discover what’s around the bend…if they don’t drive each other crazy, or drive off a cliff first.
