WE CAN MAKE IT IF WE RUN // Empty Nesters Tom and Deirdre Mason catch a stroke of bad luck on their yearly RV trip down south. It’s unfamiliar terrain, a flash flood, followed by a heatwave and no one around for miles. But Tom’s a problem-solver. He can get them out of this, can’t he?
THIRD SUMMER // Clayton turns fifty today and stands at the precipice of a new life after the end of his tumultuous marriage.
