Transcontinental train trip…romantic!
She dumps him before departure…tragic.
Non-refundable tickets…anyone have her same name?
Hugo’s big chance to travel, and it all goes sideways when Margaret breaks up with him. Oh, she’ll just fly to university in California, but he’ll stay home in the UK, quietest of the ‘Surrey Sextuplets’ forever, unless…
He just has to find another Margaret Campbell to travel with him, since everything was booked in her name! Such interesting responses to his social media request…
Maybe the train trip with this British guy will inspire Mae’s new movie to make the film school admissions committee reconsider…
Nana convinces her two dads that Mae is traveling with her new roommate to college in California, finally escaping her small New York hometown.
Rolling westward, cell service is erratic, so there’s lots of time for Hugo and Mae to talk, instead of calling to reassure her family that all is well or texting to remind his siblings that he needs time apart…time to keep talking and dreaming.
Can one week together make such a difference?
How can it not?
Her best friend says Mae’s usual impulsiveness deserts her at the most important times… is that now?
Hugo’s biggest question is whether the university will honor their full scholarship if all six siblings aren’t there…or is it?
Now out in paperback, Field Notes on Love is another travel tale of understanding and romance from the author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (my recommendation here), The Geography of You and Me (my notes here), and You Are Here (see here).
How do you decide what’s best for you instead of rolling along with everyone else?
