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.

No, Midge! She turned her back on her bed. You need to enjoy tonight. You finally have a date to the ball. She went to the window and peeked through the blinds. Night after night for most of her adult life, she’d watched Georgia and Lula leave for social engagements. Georgia to her charity functions and dinners with her husband’s doctor friends and their wives, and Lula to neighborhood gatherings that Midge was never invited to. The other wives stopped including her in their backyard barbecues and holiday cocktail parties after her divorce. She was the pariah, the woman no one wanted to associate with for fear their husbands might be tempted by the attractive young divorcée.
Midge knew Bennett wasn’t perfect, but she did her best to ignore gossip about his failed marriages and shady business dealings. She and Bennett were meant to be together. They dreamed of opening a boutique real estate firm where she would handle the residential and he the commercial transactions. Their model would provide their wealthy clients with a one-stop shop for all their real estate needs. They planned to manage the firm for ten years before retiring and turning it over to a trusted employee to run while they traveled the world. Midge had worked hard in her career, and she had a considerable portfolio to prove it. They couldn’t go wrong with his name and her business acumen.
Their relationship wasn’t all about business. Bennett had a soft side to him that he seldom let show, and the glimpses she’d seen of his compassion and vulnerability had endeared him to her. She’d dated several men since her divorce. Too many to count, in fact. But few had asked her out a second time, while only one had ended in a relationship that lasted exactly one month. She’d never connected with anyone the way she connected with Bennett. The only other man she'd ever loved was her childhood sweetheart, and their love was based on friendship. Desperate to get away from her overbearing parents, she’d married Taylor right out of high school and supported him while he attended college. She trusted him with her heart and her future and he’d jumped ship when it became clear she would never be able to give birth to their child. He refused to consider adoption or surrogacy. After years of therapy, she finally realized he’d used her infertility as a convenient excuse to divorce a woman he had never really loved.
