This is a long book and although I enjoyed reading about the everyday life of 2 long time friends who decided to move on from what they had been doing and start over on another state and the girl they picked up along the way there were times I kind of wondered where this storyline was headed. The three of them ended up renting a house in Boston as friends--of course you know one of the guys and the girl had to get together at some point. But it was a rocky road. They frequented a local bar and made friends with the patrons. Most of the book is about ordinary type people living ordinary type lives. This book kind of reminded me of the TV series "Friends". They all begin to finally figure out what it is they want to do with their lives and set out to do just that.
I was floored by the ending and actually had tears in my eyes. I did not see it coming--not at all. I have a feeling that this book will remain with me for many more years to come.

Best friends Duncan and Ray run a successful bookie business in Phoenix. Outgrowing the life they began in college, the late twenty-something pair set out on the road with a plan to never return. Their trip takes them cross-country with eventful stops in Las Vegas, Omaha, and Niagara Falls. Along their journey they meet several colorful characters and even agree to bring a pretty young girl named Ruby along with them for the ride. Landing in Boston to run an errand for an old friend, the travelers begin to lay roots in an attempt to forge for themselves the life they’d always hoped for. Easier said than done. As romances begin to burgeon, and one of their lives is put in danger, the group quickly discovers that where they are may indeed have little effect on who they are.
