Women over sixty-five can reinvent their lives, invite in adventure, and even love. The Ladies of Covington did! In the peaceful hamlet of Covington, ongoing commitments to family, friends, and community are taking their toll. Zachary and his pregnant wife Sarina are forced to move in with his father Max. But Zachary's anger over his father's marriage to Hannah causes tension. After Sarina gives birth to a beautiful baby girl, Zachary packs a bag and disappears. In the meantime, Grace has a health scare, which causes her to get serious about her diet; Lucy Banks' brother returns from Iraq, wounded in body and spirit; Amelia and Miriam attend a photography workshop in New Mexico where Miriam falls in love; and a wedding looms on the horizon as the ladies' surrogate family keeps expanding.

I like to read these Covington books for the comfort they give in this crazy ever changing and challenging world. People are changing in Covington but one thing does remain constant. The goodness and caring of the Ladies...Amelia, Hannah and Grace. Perfect book to read at the end of a hectic day or any time really. Storyline is around believable events of our time and she gives her veiled opinion of the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, irresponsible men and the gossip mill that happens in church communities. Also less dramatic changes that will add a smile. An enjoyable read that "changes" with each chapter.

I loved this book, read it almost straight through! The Covington saga continues, always an interesting plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joan Medlicott does it again.
Another great book by Medlicott. Her writing is so much like real life, it is a pleasure to read. There are lessons in each book about dealing with others. I have read all of the Covington books and enjoyed them immensely. They truly relate to so many readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've read it twice and still love the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars If your a Woman & On your Own...READ This!
Joan Medlicott is so outstanding. I think there could be something to this for many women who are now on there own and still very independent.

Bought these in Large Print for my mom and she RACED through them - charming and gentle - sweet with no "F-Bombs" - a great read for the great characters and nostalgic!

5.0 out of 5 stars
I finished the last book of the series The Ladies of Covington. I am so sad that I finished the series. I wanted it to keep going. I fell in love with all the characters. It's a series that makes you really think about your own life. Your life doesn't have to slow down or stop.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last of the Covington series to date
I hope she has another book in the works as I hate to have the series end. I am near the age of these ladies and have enjoyed reading about how they are coping with life in their late 60s and 70s and with widowhood. Joan writes about some of my same concerns and feelings, so I feel as if the Ladies are close friends of mine.
