Overview

In this delightful new novel, popular author Roxanne Henke (the Coming Home to Brewster series, Learning to Fly) strikes a familiar chord with readers as she introduces us to the Westin family and their "someday" plans.

Claire Westin has spent her adult life being a wife, mother, and college professor. The last thing she expects as she nears retirement status is to have a whole new career open before her.

Her husband, Jim, has spent his life growing his chain of grocery stores. He has a grand plan to restore an old Dodge Charger...someday when he retires. Someday soon, he hopes.

If his son Drew would only agree to take over the family business. Drew, however, has plans of his own. And Claire is busy climbing the ladder of her new career. She can't bear the thought that she might have to say "no" to the exciting new opportunities she's pursuing and simply sit around and watch her husband tinker on an old car.

What happens when plans collide? When dreams don't materialize? How do you know when your work is done? Or is it ever?

On a Someday asks the big questions of life...and tries to answer them.

"...A CBA novelist to watch." --Publishers Weekly

    Interesting Book - recommended. I have read many books by this author and I enjoyed this one by it was on my favorite. It was an iteresting topic because I am in this season of life, thinking about retiring in the next couple of years.

    This book is a good read for those of us facing retirement, but also for children of older parents. This might be an interesting book for discussions with a book club. There are some very interesting characters.

    Good Read

    I enjoyed this book and the ideas Roxanne put forth regarding retirement. There are many thoughts as to timing and what is right for different people. She handles the choices very well. Hard to imagine someone being to busy for family and grandchildren but then again Claire was a stay at home mom before and now was coming into her own and doing something for herself. Fortunately she learned the word "no". A good read. I could relate to the story as those are some of the choices I had to make a few yeas ago. I really did not want too quit working. I did and now have replaced work with other things. I am still feeling fulfilled,needed and that I have something to offer others. Retirement is good.
