Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Serving a sentence in a prison in Mexico, Libertad Gonz̀lez finds a clever way to pass the time with the weekly Library Club, reading to her fellow inmates from whatever books she can find in the prison's meager supply. The story that emerges, though, has nothing to do with the words printed on the pages. She tells of a former literature professor and fugitive of the Mexican government who reinvents himself as a trucker in the United States. There he falls in love with a wild woman with whom he shares his truck and his life--that is until Joaqu̕n Gonz̀lez unexpectedly finds himself alone on the road with a baby girl and Gonz̀lez & Daughter Trucking Co. is born. Joaqu̕n and his daughter make the cab of an 18-wheeler their home, sharing everythinǵ04adventures, books, truck-stop chow, and memories of the girl's mother--until one day the girl grows into a woman, and a chance encounter with one man causes her to rebel against another.
