Inspirational, yet terrifying at times! No sleeping till this one is finished!

Three women who were college roommates venture back to their college home when they learn that the house is closing. Ireland has made a life as a college professor and has always had an eco-conscious lifestyle.  But a threat of a lawsuit from a student claiming he was denied grad school because he refused Ireland’s advances may ruin her career.  Jenna made a lifestyle as a stay at home mom after she and her husband had triplets.  But now that they have left the nest, Jenna has lost her identity and fears she may no longer be loved.  Victoria runs a huge ministry in Dallas, Texas but has just learned that her husband and her assistant may be romantically involved.  While at the reunion, they learn their fourth roommate passed away a few months before, who was the gel of their group.  At her daughter’s store, the meet a woman who takes other women up the in mountains for survival training and on a whim decide to do it in honor of their friend.  But will they make it home?

This was very a very inspirational book yet had the makings of a thriller at times. These three women are all introduced with the problems that each face.  Each personality begins to show through as each character is further developed.  And the way that the accomplish their fears is courageous.  But the wilderness exercise was the thrilling part of the story.  Nelson didn’t let up on the characters for a second.  After they overcame one impossible obstacle, another was thrown directly at them without even time for a breather.  It’s amazing that they made it through as much as they did.  If you feel that it is a little slow starting out, just wait until you get about halfway through the book.  There is no turning back!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
