Have you ever wondered what it would be like to pull up stakes, change employment and pack up and move across country with your wife to a new harsh environment, leaving behind a beautiful home, children and everything you have ever wanted or hoped for?

Synopsis

A couple in their twilight employment years. The husband is forced into retirement so the wife decides to go for it and move the two of them across country to a new executive level job where she can maximize her retirement. They pack up and sell what they cannot leave behind, including their adult children and their dream house with the hope the property manager can rent it for enough to break even. They move clear across country to a new weather locale where everything they are used to doing is turned on its head. The story follows them on their journey to her new job and the day to day changes they must make to adapt to their new surroundings. The couple also must adapt to the death of her son at last year's Christmas due to Opioid overdose. No sooner than they get there they learn they now no longer have any employment. Do they stay and tough it out or move? And where do they move to? They repack up everything and move back across country on a partially different route, this time to Las Vegas to her son's home he just reacquired from a nasty, bitter divorce they helped emotionally support him through. If they had not helped him on a daily basis, then they would not have had a place to go themselves for refuge. The novel is a day by day accounting the journey the two of them make while trying not to consume the other and keep their marriage together. The silence between the two of them thinking about what they are not going to say and bite their tongue is deafening! In the end, the couple realize having it all means that only if you have each other.
