The first step to letting go of the past is forgiving it… Every day of her life Julia Rich lives with the memory of a horrible accident she caused long ago. In the years since, she has tried to hide her guilt in the quiet routine of teaching at a small South Carolina college, avoiding close relationships with family and would-be friends. But one day a phone call from Carmen, a niece she has never met, disrupts her carefully controlled world. Carmen is a study in contrasts—comical yet wise, sunny yet contemplative, soft yet assertive. As she sets about gently drawing Julia from her self-imposed solitude into a place of hope, she also seeks her own peace for past mistakes. Together, the two women embark on a journey that takes Julia far from the familiar comfort of home and gives Carmen the courage to open her heart. Together, their sightseeing trip turns into a discovery of truth, grace, redemption, and, finally, love…

Doesn’t this sound wonderful? I am so ready to take this sightseeing trip.

    I have always enjoyed road trips to the beach with friends. Music, singing, it was just so much fun!

    I haven’t been on a road trip for a very long time. Some friends and I went on one a looong time ago and it was a blast 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    I love road trips and I’ve taken a ton of them in my life. I think my favorite of all time was when I was a teenager and hitchhiked across most of Canada from Toronto to Vancouver for the first time. Hitching was pretty safe to do in those days and it was a big adventure for me. Thanks.

    My most memorable and best road trip was in the Southwest in the summer, driving through Historic Western Towns in Colorado, New Mexico and enjoying the beauty and vistas.

    This looks like such a good read, and has been on my wishlist for a bit.
    I would love to receive it and read it!

    I have been on many long road trips. The best would have to be the most recent: we drove our car and a moving truck cross-country from NY to CA and got to see many states we would never have visited otherwise, though didn’t get to do any extra sightseeing. When we were in Arizona, my husband bought me a pretty turquoise necklace, handmade by a member of the Navajo at one of our stops. It was a long, difficult journey, traveling with 2 young adult kids and our pets, but it gave us great memories!

    I haven’t been on a really long road trip for a while. But the most recent long drive was to San Francisco for a author event. A blogger friend drove but she accidentally put the wrong hotel in her gps. We parked and walked around the hotel for a while until we figured it out. It was funny and we did finally get to the correct hotel. Thanks for the giveaway!!

    The best road trip I’ve been on was the time I went with three friends on a whim to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. We weren’t even old enough to drink yet, but we had so much fun! We decided to go only a day or two before we left, and it was exhilarating taking such a huge trip from Ohio down to Louisiana. We spent the night before and the night after then drove back. I miss days like that.
