With the pull of Susan Wiggs' and Robyn Carr's emotional family dramas, Audrey Carlan's new romantic women's fiction trilogy features three sisters who, through the discovery of personalized letters from their late mother, rethink the direction of their lives and their relationships.

From the No. 1 bestselling author of the beloved Calendar Girl books comes the first in a witty, wise and emotionally compelling new series, where coming home is just the beginning...

'Fly free.'

For ten years those words, written on pink parchment paper in her mother's beautiful handwriting, have been Suda Kaye Ross's guiding star. Every year on her birthday, Suda Kaye opens another of the letters her mother penned before she passed, heeding the advice inside as she fills her life with experiences. From Italy to Australia, from Rio to Russia, she's slaked her wanderlust. And then, on her twenty-eighth birthday, she opens the letter that sends her home.

Returning to Colorado means confronting everything -- and everyone -- she left behind, including her cherished sister, Evie, and her first love, Camden Bryant. Suda Kaye and Cam spent four years and one unforgettable night together. Given the way she ran out on him, it's no surprise that he's wary, resentful...and engaged to someone else. Evie, hardworking and uberresponsible, just wants her sister to put down roots at last.

For Evie's sake, and her own, Suda Kaye is trying to build a new life, all the while wondering whether it's too late to come back home -- or if the most important part of her never really left.

'A wonderful story about building a dream and loving your life, home, family, and more.'
-- New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott on What the Heart Wants
