We have three strong female characters: Jessie, Evan and Gus. 38 year old Jessie McBride runs her own garden shop but thinks it's too late for love in her life. Suddenly she finds herself questioning that when her high school love is back in town and she's also being courted by the dashing and wealthy Sumner Tate. Jessie's mother Gus is growing more concerned about her own recent lapses in memory. Is it just normal aging or something else? Jessie's daughter Evan is just entering high school and testing her limits. To complicate matters, she has developed a crush on Nick who happens to be the son of Ben Bradley, her mother's high school love.
Glory Road develops all three of these narratives so well and I was equally engaged in all of them. I appreciated the three strong female characters all at different points in their lives but connected by their family bond. This is the third novel I have read by Lauren K. Denton and I have truly enjoyed them all. A strong four star read for me.
