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 author of the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Where the Heart Is" comes the story of a wheelchair-bound Vietnam vet who opens restaurant after returning from war. When a vibrant young women enters the cafe, she changes the lives of the regulars forever. Includes a reading group guide.
