May 3rd 2017
Three friends met every Tuesday for twenty-six years. And then they stopped.
From the author of the bestselling Sweeney Sisters Series comes a novel of friendship, family and hope....
When new next-door neighbors Georgia, Midge, and Lula first assembled on Georgia’s porch in Charleston for sweet tea, they couldn’t have known their gathering was the beginning of a treasured tradition. For twenty-six years they have met on Tuesdays at four o’clock, watching the seasons change and their children grow up, supporting each other in good times and in bad. With their ambitions as different as their personalities, these best friends anticipate many more years of tea time. And then, one Tuesday, Georgia shares news that brings their long-standing social hour to an abrupt halt. And that’s only the beginning as unraveling secrets threaten to alter their friendship forever.
“You know, Brooke, it just occurred to me that it’s been years since we’ve had our Fourth of July Party. Wouldn’t it be fun to get all our friends together again?”
“Don’t go to any trouble for me, Mom. I haven’t kept up with many of my friends from home.”
“Then it’s time for you to reconnect with them.” Excitement stirred in Lula’s belly as the idea began to take root. Images from past parties flashed through her mind. Hot dogs and hamburgers sizzling on the grill. Children diving for live goldfish in the pool while their parents sipped vodka tonics. Men setting off fireworks after dark. “It won’t be any trouble at all. We’ll make it a welcome home party in your honor. Are you bringing anyone with you?” She held her breath. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Brooke brought home a beau?
“Oh, Mom, I’ve gotta go now. My boss is giving me the hairy eyeball. I’ll text you when I know my travel plans.” Her daughter ended the call before she could ask any more questions.
Lula stared at the calendar pinned to the wall beneath the phone that seldom rang. The Fourth of July was only a month away. So much to do and only four weeks’ time to do it in. She wondered if the blue grass band they all loved so much was still available. She should give them a call. Where in the world was her address book? She hopped up out of her chair, took a step, and then leaned against the table when the room began to spin. Spots appeared before her eyes and her skin felt clammy despite the heat. She was groping for the chair to sit back down when everything suddenly went black.
