Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clear-eyed and spirited, Taylor Greer grew up poor in rural Kentucky with the goals of avoiding pregnancy and getting away. But when she heads west with high hopes and a barely functional car, she meets the human condition head-on. By the time Taylor arrives in Tucson, Arizona, she has acquired a completely unexpected child, a three-year-old American Indian girl named Turtle, and must somehow come to terms with both motherhood and the necessity for putting down roots. Hers is a story about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places.

Synopsis:

Plucky Taylor Greer grows up poor in rural Kentucky with two goals: to avoid pregnancy and to get away. She succeeds on both counts when she buys an old car and heads west. But midway across the country motherhood catches up with her when she becomes the guardian of an abandoned baby girl.

Synopsis:

Story of a young girl growing up in rural Kentucky who is determined to move away and finds her life changed when she becomes the guardian of an abandoned baby girl. This American author has quite strong backlist sales from her previous titles, which include "Homeland, Pigs In Heaven" and "The Poisonwood Bible".
