About The Book:
When 22-year-old Ginny Martin discovers her husband has been cheating on her, she strikes back by purchasing tickets to every concert on the Rolling Stones North American tour with their shared credit card, packing up the car, and taking to the road. As she follows the Rolling Stones from Los Angeles to Oklahoma City, Ginny experiences freedom for the first time - and begins to deal with the insecurities and limiting beliefs that have kept her suburban life far too small. Bree Cooper is a nomad, a free-spirited drifter, and a mother who abandoned responsibility - and her young daughter. When Ginny meets Bree at a roadside diner, they impulsively make the decision to throw their lot in together. In each other, they find a friendship that they have both longed for: Bree gives Ginny a chance to have a mother figure who inspires independence and encourages confidence, while Ginny gives Bree a chance to get parenting right on the second try. Together, they find the courage to break free of the past - and to blaze new paths to happiness.
This is a book about free spirited women, and those who wish to be like them. It's all a bit fantastical, who wouldn't want to run away from it all sometimes? But is it reality? Can it really happen? It is fun to follow along with these women and see their stories!
