The Future She Left Behind

Summary: One woman’s journey home gets derailed by her soon-to-be ex-mother-in-law in a novel filled with humor, small-town charm, rekindled love, and the resilient ties of family.

Cast aside by her cheating husband, Katelyn Chandler is ready to pack it all in and drive home to Little Springs, Texas. She wants a chance to regroup, reconnect with her mother, and get back to her art.

But Shirley Pratt–master manipulator, elitist snob, and Katelyn’s terror of a live-in monster-in-law–has other ideas. Shirley insists on joining Katelyn’s trip after her son tries to pack her off to a retirement community. Katelyn has no choice but to play peacekeeper between the ornery old woman and the proud matrons of Little Springs. Yet the small town seems to be changing Shirley. And as Katelyn weighs the wisdom of picking up where she left off with Jackson Mendoza, the town bad boy and her high school sweetheart, she must find a way to believe in the strength of her dreams.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

This is my first Marin Thomas book, but will not be my last! It’s a light read with themes that will inspire the reader to do a little deep thinking.

What I liked:

The cover. It was def eye-catching!

Shirley. Yes, master manipulator- but life in Texas softened her edges and she became more of an enjoyable character!

The realness of the book. This was life, problems, etc that I could “see”, I could see the town perfectly!


Bottom line: Marin Thomas has her finger on the pulse of smaller towns and women’s fiction. Can’t wait for her next book!
