from the back cover:
Maggie and Ira Moran have been married for twenty-eight years - and it shows: in their quarrels, in their routines, in their ability to tolerate with affection each other's eccentricities. Maggie, a kooky, lovable meddler and an irrepressible optimist, wants nothing more than to fix her son's broken marriage. Ira is infuriatingly practical, a man "who should have married Ann Landers." And what begins as a day trip to a funeral becomes an adventure in the unexpected. As Maggie and Ira navigate the riotous twists and turns, they intersect with an assorted cast of eccentrics - and rediscover the magic of the road called life and the joy of having somebody next to you to share the ride - bumps and all.

I have had a copy of this book over the years - not this same one - always intending on reading it because the Maggie character was so like the mother of my best friend growing up, as I seem to recall. And I was not mistaken; she really was; I just can not remember who first told me about the likeness.
