Publishers Description

In this delightful new novel, popular author Roxanne Henke (the Coming Home to Brewster series, "Learning to Fly") strikes a familiar chord with readers as she introduces us to the Westin family and their "someday" plans.

Claire Westin has spent her adult life being a wife, mother, and college professor. The last thing she expects as she nears retirement status is to have a whole new career open before her.

Her husband, Jim, has spent his life growing his chain of grocery stores. He has a grand plan to restore an old Dodge Charger...someday when he retires. Someday "soon," he hopes.

If his son Drew would only agree to take over the family business. Drew, however, has plans of his own. And Claire is busy climbing the ladder of her new career. She can't bear the thought that she might have to say "no" to the exciting new opportunities she's pursuing and simply sit around and watch her husband tinker on an old car.

What happens when plans collide? When dreams don't materialize? How do you know when your work is done? Or is it ever?

"On a Someday" asks the big questions of life...and tries to answer them...".A CBA novelist to watch." --"Publishers Weekly"

Reviews - What do customers think about On a Someday?

Can They Seize the Moment if Someday Ever Comes?  Mar 13, 2009
Watch Video Here: http://www.this Jim and Claire Westin had it all planned out:

They were going to travel the world, follow their dreams, do exciting things.

Then life, and kids, and work, and bills interrupted.

Now, 25 years later, they're still telling each other the same things: "someday we'll follow our dreams."

But will they have the courage to seize the moment if someday ever comes?
We all have "Somedays"  Mar 9, 2009
Everyone has a "Someday". We all have plans to do things "someday" on relationships, pursue that hobby, read that book, have a cup of coffee with a friend,get that vacation in, retire...the list goes on.
Enter Jim & Claire Westin, a couple hitting "middle age" and "retirement".
Claire has been teaching at a community college and Jim has focused on Westin Foods, his grocery store. Jim would like his son, Drew, to take over the business, but Drew is in New York working in finance with no plans to move back to North Dakota.
As a teacher and librarian facing the "someday of retirement", I recommend this book highly.
When Claire's mother dies, her father is at loose ends and asks Claire and her sister to clean out her mother's "stuff". Claire finds a tub of unfinished projects that goads her into finishing the book she always wanted to write.
THE FRIENDSHIP FACTOR is finished and sent to the publisher. No one is more surprised than Claire when the book becomes a best seller and she begins speaking tours. In the meantime, Jim buys another grocery store in another town AND an old Dodge Charger that he is going to fix up "someday".
When Jim is faced with a major health issue, Claire comes face to face with a choice that is life-altering. Jim is forced to make life changing decisions as well.
If you are planning to read only one book this month, pick ON A SOMEDAY. It is thought-provoking, especially if YOU are putting off something for "someday" and if you are looking at retirement in the future. The story is one to which most people can relate and makes the reader think about that coming "someday".
Friendship's best author  Feb 24, 2009
On a Someday is about the dreams we all have and wonder if we'll they'll ever come true. As Claire finds herself facing some very tough decisions, I could relate to her dilemma and wondered about my own path. Told in three points of view, you see a family striving to make their individual dreams come true while contending with the relationships that enrich their lives.

Roxanne Henke is a master at writing stories about deep friendship and family, and each of her books has been filled with memorable characters that live on after you turn the last page.
