Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Caney Paxton wanted his cafe to have the biggest and brightest sign in Eastern Oklahoma-the "opening soon" part was supposed to be just a removable, painted notice. But a fateful misunderstanding gave Vietnam vet Caney the flashiest joke in the entire state. Twelve years later, the once-busy highway is dead and the sign is as worn as Caney, who hasn't ventured outside the diner since it opened. Then one blustery December day, a thirtyish Crow woman blows in with a three-legged dog in her arms and a long-buried secret on her mind. Hiring on as a carhop, Vena Takes Horse is soon shaking up business, the locals, and Caney's heart...as she teaches them all about generosity of spirit, love, and the possibility of promise-just like the sign says.

Synopsis:

From the award-winning author of "Where the Heart Is" comes the story of a down-and-out cafe owner, Caney, who opens his restaurant after returning from Vietnam in a wheelchair. Then one day Vena Takes Horse, a vibrant young women, enters the cafe, changes the lives of the regulars forever, and, eventually, captures Caney's heart.
