much of friendship has become via social media, and she wants to change that She yearns for the way she used to be connected to her friends, and so she decides she s going to visit them Not just a visit as she s passing through, or for a meal of food with someone in the same town, but an actual visit where she stays with each of them She identifies four friends from different phases of her life that she s going to go see, and the book chronicles this experience Through these visits, some things have stayed the same, while other things have definitely changed In the meantime, she s also navigating both past and present relationships with her family which adds another layer to these visits For me, this is one I m still thinking about as I wondered what it would be like to go on this adventure with my own friends Her assessment of the current state of friendship could not be right on, and it s made me continue to reflect on how I connect with my own friends My only critique is I wanted to know even about her friendships Because I was so drawn in, I wanted background, about the visits, and just of what was happening All in all, this one is an enlightening and emotional read that I d recommend checking out when it hits shelves in May flag Like see review Jan 21, 2019 Susan rated it really liked it May Attaway is a forty year old woman with a job as a landscape gardener on

as a guest in other people s homes May is also trying to find meaning in her own life as well as identify who she is and how she appears to those around her.Initially, I wasn t sure about this book, which seemed than a little melancholy to me, but as I kept going, I saw that it was filled with little pearls of wisdom and I realized that May wasn t as depressed as I had thought She was a sensitive soul with a love of plants, trees and animals trying to find her way in a world full of people, people she didn t quite connect with as quickly as others around her appear to do The I read, the I felt a connection with May, or found that it was easier to relate to what she was feeling, a sense of being unconnected in a world of change In the end, I was pleased to see that the visits to her friends led to a transformation in May s ability to open up a little and find what she s been missing Thanks to Penguin Random House for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.More
