A new chapter begins in the lives of childhood friends, Thomasine, Rachel, and Hope. Their friendship has stood the test of time, but more adventures are in store for them…Round ‘Bout Midnight. In this sequel to Time Will Tell, the unresolved issues and hurts Thomasine, Rachel, and Hope experienced during their youth don’t just vanish into thin air.
The world Hope spent ten years building with her high school sweetheart, Jason McCoy, comes crashing down around her all at once when he asks her for a divorce. Although she has her dream job in a new city, her nightly ritual of rum and Diet Coke and one-time encounters with nameless men leaves her feeling dejected, desolate, and defeated.
In Nashville, her lifelong friend Rachel Curtis Brown is consumed with fear and anxiety as she summons the courage to call her ex-fiancé, Patrick, six years after their break up to ask him to take a DNA test.
On a flight from Los Angeles to Sydney, their friend Thomasine Mintor awakens to find Rodney Harris, the man of her dreams, sitting across the aisle from her. Although he has gone to great lengths to prove his love to her, Thomasine is constantly challenged in trusting him, and most of all, in trusting herself.
For Thomasine, Rachel, and Hope true friendship is strengthened over time…no matter the hour. As these women mature and grow, they learn that life is best lived one day at a time, with each new day starting Round ‘Bout Midnight.
