What are you supposed to do with a restored spirit? Eventually, I got some answers. I just didn't expect to get so many. When Juanita Lewis arrived in Paper Moon, Montana, courtesy of a Greyhound bus, she was just looking for a brief respite. Instead, she found a home, friends, and a man to love. But this leave-your-attitude-by-the-door woman made a promise to herselfone that she intends to keep. Now that she's got a place to come back to, Juanita wants to see the world. A trip out West with her eccentric trucker friend, Peaches, leads to a cooking stint at a new age spa for skinny celebrities. Crazy, but its here that Juanita decides to take her talent for cooking to a new level . . . and make it her dream.

So how does a middle-aged black woman from the projects follow her heart when it's heading in so many different directions? By asking the right questions, then listening with her soul.
