In this heartwarming novel from the bestselling author of MUST LOVE DOGS and WALLFLOWER IN BLOOM, a recently separated woman faces her highway driving phobia and takes a road trip with her best friend to their high school reunion.
Years ago, Melanie followed her husband, Kurt, from the New England beach town where their two young sons were thriving to the suburbs of Atlanta. She's carved out a life as a successful metal sculptor, but when Kurt leaves her for another woman, having the tools to cut up their marriage bed is small consolation. She's old enough to know that high school reunions are often a big disappointment, but when her best friend makes her buy a ticket and an old flame gets in touch to see whether she'll be going, she fantasizes that returning to her past might help her find her future...until her driving phobia resurfaces and threatens to hold her back from the adventure of a lifetime.
TIME FLIES is an epic road trip filled with fun, heartbreak, and friendship, and explores what it takes to conquer your worst fears...so you can start living your future.
