About What Matters Most:

Award-Winning Story of Friendship

From Amazon #1 bestselling author of Spare Change and The Twelfth Child comes…What Matters Most. A heartwarming story of acceptance and coming to grips with the reality of change. A 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.

    One of my favorite sayings is: “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss

    I have quite a few favorite sayings. I chose this one today.

    It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.

    Eleanor Roosevelt

    I don’t really have a favorite quote except for “You Can Do It!” from The Waterboy!
    Thanks for participating in this hop! Summer is the perfect time for love to bloom! Probably my favorite love story is the book, “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie Fraser and Claire are epic! I also have enjoyed the books, “Courting Miss. Hattie” by Pamela Morsi and a more recent book, “Beautiful Disaster” by Jamie McGuire.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

      It is true. Life is just about taking chances no matter the outcome.

    I don’t know any Southern wisdom sayings but my favorite quote is :
    If you have integrity, nothing else matters.
    If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters.

    Thanks 🙂
