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.
“Ouch!” Lula’s eyes shot open. “Sounds like trouble in paradise.”
“Honey, paradise is so far in my rearview mirror, I wouldn’t know what it looked like if it smacked me in the face.” Georgia sat back and crossed her legs. “I don’t want to talk about Langdon today. But I do have news. It’s not exciting enough to cause anyone to faint, but it involves a lifestyle change for me.”
Midge took a sip of tea and set her glass on the table. “My news might make you faint. Although not from excitement.”
Georgia cocked a meticulously plucked eyebrow. “Now you’ve got my curiosity up.” She reached for the deck of cards she’d brought out on the tray. She shuffled the deck several times and set it facedown on the coffee table. They took turns choosing a card. Midge drew the highest card with a queen of hearts. Lula came in second with a ten of spades, and Georgia lost the round with a five of clubs. Back in the day, when their children were little and their husbands were working late, there’d been many times when the tea sipping had led to wine guzzling and they’d ordered four or five large pizzas for dinner for their rowdy little group. They’d spent so much time together in those years they knew everything there was to know about one another. But now that their lives were so busy and independent of one another, most Tuesdays they all had tidbits of news or gossip to share. Instead of trying to talk over each other at once, they adopted the card method as a fair means of taking turns.
