A very wealthy man, recently divorced and being investigated for insider trading plus a single mom who is trying to raise two kids with no help from the father that left these kids in her care end up in his car on a road trip - obviously drama ensues! Jojo Moyes gives each of these characters, the wealthy man, the single mom and each child chapters of their own to tell their parts of the story and I loved that even the kids were given the opportunity to move the story along.
This book was a great family drama combined with something that most people love to read - a road trip. Each character felt complete and full without loosing authenticity. There may have been a few cheesy moments that felt cinematic, but I still enjoyed it as a whole. There were some moments that could have been a little predictable - but the family stayed in the center of the book grounding the story the whole time.
