Aging and recent widow Harriet Beamer insists she’s getting along fine with her dog Humphrey in Philadelphia … until she falls for the fourth time, injuring her ankle, and causing her son and daughter-in-law to cry foul. Insisting Harriet move in with them in California, they make a bet that her ankle is broken, and she foolishly promises to move if they’re right. Four x-rays later, Harriet’s ankle—and her heart—are broken. She packs up, ships her huge salt and pepper collection to California, and prepares to move away from the only life she knows. The only catch? She’s doing it her way. Just wait till her daughter-in-law hears Harriet will travel cross country only by public transportation and alternate means. What follows is a hilarious, heartwarming journey by train, metro bus, ferry, and motorcycle. Along the way, Harriet discovers that although her family thinks it’s time for her to be put out to pasture—God has a different plan.

    " Cute light hearted book. Harriet made me miss my Granny, she had this kind of spunk and I could see her taking this same journey Harriet did. Loved how she impacted those around her and yet she did not know how she touched so many lives. I like how Harriet's character grew on her journey even at her age she learned new things about herself and the world around her. Harriet showed me that no matter how old you think you are you can still achieve goals that you might have thought were just a dream. Can't wait to read the next adventure. :) "

    " really wish we could do half stars. This is a 3.5. Cute and fun, but this should have been easier to read than it was, maybe it was me. But it also needed more of something. "
