Sometimes, life is like a revolving door. As a teenager, when I left Georgia to pursue a better life and to see the world, I told myself I would never live here again. 70 years later, after all my travels and being in so many places, I accomplished my dream; with many prayers. I was determined not to return, but somehow, I found myself back in Georgia, where I started. Life has changed a great deal since my younger days. Many loved ones, the homes where I lived, and the places I use to go are gone. One thing that remains is my memory of them and the times we shared. I still enjoy a drive to the country, visiting the old places, and on occasion, I take my children and grandchildren with me on those rides and tell them stories about the little boy who grew up in the south.

Travel time: Six hours. Seating arrangement: Next to a man who's much too attractive to be single. Not that Carey's looking. She's taking time off from dating, too. Most of the men she meets are a lot like airplane food: nicely packaged, well-preserved, and profoundly unsatisfying. When she begins chatting with Ben Russell, though, it's as if Carey has known him all her life. He's quick-witted, kind, and makes her laugh -- even at herself. Ha! Then it was time for take-off. One stopover later, Carey and Ben are married in Las Vegas, and their transatlantic announcement is causing sudden turbulence back home. How can two strangers claim to be each other's soul mate? Ben's sister is adamantly opposed to Carey; she thinks he's having a mid-life, no-wife crisis. As for Carey's folks, well, they know the marriage will never last. Right? Rumors are running amok, as are past lovers. Why is everyone trying to ground the newlyweds and convince them that they've made a huge mistake? And why is Carey starting to worry that maybe they're right?
