From the bestselling author of the beloved book Must Love Dogs , later made into a film starring John Cusack and Diane Lane, comes a new novel about what happens when we think everything is falling apart, and discover that we can pick up the pieces after all.

Years ago, Melanie followed her husband, Kurt, from the New England beach town where their two young sons were thriving to the suburbs of Atlanta. She's carved out a life as a successful metal sculptor, but when Kurt leaves her for another woman, having the tools to cut up their marriage bed is small consolation.

She's old enough to know that high school reunions are often a big disappointment, but when her best friend makes her buy a ticket and an old flame gets in touch to see if she'll be going, she fantasizes that returning to her past might help her find her future...until her highway driving phobia resurfaces and threatens to hold her back from the adventure of a lifetime.

Time Flies is an epic trip filled with fun, heartbreak, and friendship that explores what it takes to conquer your worst fears...so you can start living your future.

Booklist Review: "Time Flies is a spunky, lighthearted road trip down memory lane as two best friends reunite for their high-school reunion and challenge their fears. Years ago, Melanie left her friends and native New England to follow her husband to Atlanta, uprooting their two young sons. Now at midlife, she's a recently separated, self-employed metal sculptor with a fear of highways, sawing her marriage bed into disposable chunks and bending the springs into art. When her best friend urges her to return home for their class reunion, Melanie's driving phobia kicks in, and she begs off. But it's hard to resist when an old crush she can barely remember lures her with his flirtatious e-mails. So she takes the plunge. What follows is a lot of reminiscing to the soundtrack of the good old days when the BFs finally meet up for their driving adventure. The banter is a lot of fun, and the characters' realization of what is important is certain to make readers yearn for reconnections of their own. Another delightful beach read from the author of Wallflower in Bloom (2012).--Holcomb, Diane Copyright 2010 Booklist"
