From the Back Cover What do you do when you realize you're not who you want to be? Rachelle Covington has it all. A fabulous home, a handsome and successful husband, two beautiful children, and a place in the upper crust that's quite comfortable. But life is not all it's cracked up to be, and Rachelle finds herself yearning for more. When her husband goes away on a business trip and the kids are sent off to the grandparents for a month, Rachelle heads back to Jubilant, Texas, to visit family and reconnect with her past, her purpose, and herself. But when a blast from the past shows up, Rachelle must confront feelings she thought she'd long buried. Will she give up everything to recover what could have been? Or will she find a reason to plan for the future? Fresh, sincere, and full of hope, The Someday List is an honest look at what makes us who we are.

However, a dying friend encourages Rachelle to make a list of all of the things she'd like to accomplish. Rachelle struggles to make her list, wondering what she really wants out of her life. When her kids are sent away to stay with grandparents and her husband goes away on a missionary trip, Rachelle returns to her hometown and is faced with her first love. Temptation haunts her since she's struggling with an unhappy marriage. The Someday List addresses lots of issues, including alcoholism and spousal unfaithfulness. This book teaches us how to embrace life, and learn to lean on God, especially since we never know how long we will be allowed to live on this earth.
