Live with Gusto — and Soar

Every group needs a thread which weaves through the relationship. The motto above, while unofficial, is a favorite among a group of five women who bonded during US Navy boot camp many summers ago.

Time passes. Face-to face time between group members becomes sporadic as they each lead separate lives. And then…

The unthinkable happens just when Janet Johnson of St. Louis would like to enjoy the end of an August heat wave.

Dip into this sweet, contemporary romance and meet Janet — HVAC tech, divorcee, and mother-of-the-bride — as she navigates a few of the trials of the “sandwich” generation. Will she live with gusto? With a partner?
