Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After losing her psychic gift for reading people's futures, Aletta Honor is poised for change and digs deep into her family tree. Aletta realizes she must go to New Mexico to uncover the fascinating, troubling history of her great-grandmother.

Review:

"Dunbar's sophomore effort provides the same warm, harmless entertainment as did her debut (The Saints and Sinners of Okay County) and once again features Aletta Honor, Okay County psychic and single mother of four. Between dumping her current beau, Eugene, hooking up with dashing, too-good-to-be-true Charlie Baxter and pacifying her hovering alcoholic mess of an ex-husband, Jimmy, Aletta barely finds time to give readings to her customers. A visit from a strange Native American bearing a cryptic eagle feather inexplicably strips Aletta of her intuitive ability, just as long-lost second cousin Vee arrives in town armed with a family secret that turns Aletta's world upside down. Vee's revelation spurs Aletta and friends Joy and Bobette to embark on a wacky road trip to dig up her ancestry, solve the feather mystery and hopefully restore her psychic skills. The simplistic, threadbare plot will be of little concern to those craving Dunbar's wholesome, homespun storytelling about the ups and downs of a colorful group of family and friends — all wrapped up with a heartfelt resolution."
