Journey Girls…..3…..Traveling to Indy, takes
place one year after the marriage of DOC and Meg,
the death of Miss Kate, and the addition of beautiful
baby Katherine Elinor who is fondly called “Katie.”
Anna and JFJ are seeking love and approval from
family and friends as they advance their relationship.
Life has taken many twists and turns for everyone,
but especially Meghan. As she stands at her farmhouse
sink looking out the window, she watches DOC
pushing Katie in her baby swing hanging from the
old oak tree. She sees the bright sun reflecting off of
his wide gold wedding ring. She wonders, is this a
dream? No, she quickly tells herself. The nightmares
of years past, of Jack’s death, of surviving the pain
and grief, are over. She walks out through the garden
full of color and fragrance to DOC and Katie, as big
strong hands circle her shoulders. Baby kisses, jabber,
teething rings, and wedding rings are new blessings.
Meg and Ellie are each thriving in their businesses
and as always, in full support of each other. Meg has
developed Marigold’s to include additional Interior
Design classes to complement her ever-growing
consulting business. Grandma Annabelle would be
so very proud of Ellie, who has taken the famous
Annabelle’s Bakery to now include a trendy café. The
breakfast, brunch, and lunch menu is very much the
hit of Savannah.
Anna has a new project and she is happily painting
a mural on Katie’s walls and sparkling stars on her
ceiling that will glow in the dark. She has taken her
“godmom” role very seriously and she is totally in
love with baby Katie.
Lucy has a new friend. A new princess now shares
everyone’s attention and occasionally crawls toward
Lucy’s water bowl, spilling it.
Life is full of family and friends, and then the
unthinkable, unbelievable, unexplainable happens
when Jeff arrives in Savannah.
