Award-Winning Story of friendship

From bestselling author Bette Lee Crosby...What Matters Most. A heartwarming story of acceptance and coming to grips with reality. Royal Palm Literary Award Winner.

Louise Palmer is a settled-down person. A woman who wants nothing more than to remain in the same house until the day she dies. So, when her husband, Clay, announces an intention to quit his job and move to Florida, her life is thrown into a turmoil of mixed emotions and strained loyalties. Torn between Clay's desire for "the good life" and the lifelong friendships of her quilting club, Louise struggles with what to do...until her best friend suggests a scheme to thwart the move.

Before she discovers the truth of what matters most, a marriage will be tested, family relationships will fall apart and the friendships Louise tried to hold on to will change dramatically.

Editorial Reviews

Alle's Five Star Reviews - Alle Wells
This book will remain in my heart as one of the best books I've ever read. The characters and the messages they convey jump from the pages and touch a soft spot in my soul. It's a love story. It's a story of friendship. It's a woman's journey to the fullness of life as ahe gives up what means the most to her and finds what matters most. Crosby's wonderful way with words, her wit, and her wisdom shine more than ever in What Matters Most.
A Book and A Review - N Blackburn
What Matter Most is classic to the wit and writing style of Ms. Crosby. Like all her reads, her character development is spectacular with a special type of Southern wit that makes me smile.
New Jersey Girl Reviews - Kathleen Anderson
What Matters Most is a wonderful story about love, friendship, family and marriage. Author Bette Lee Crosby weaves an entertaining tale written in the third person narrative intertwined with first person narratives, that follows the journey of Louise Palmer as she learns to adapt to changes in her life.
Library Thing - Kathy Goodreads
This is a heart-warming story of one woman's struggle in a life turned upside down and how she works through things, with the help of her husband and friends. I have not read anything else by this author, but, after this, I will be seeking out more of her works to read. She really knows how to write a book that is interesting but sincere, with a definite underlying message.
Goodreads - Nanette Goodread
A novel that proves there's a lot that can be had from the telling of the goings-on in ordinary people's lives. Scenes that tug at the heart, funny moments, and a load of life lessons - all these can be found on the pages where the author interspersed third person storytelling with chapters filled with the characters' own thoughts and musings.
