Charlene Darnell has spent her life taking care of others. When her husband Joey calls from a weekend trip away and says he isnt returning, shes left to pick up the pieces and becomes overwhelmed. Maybe grasping something as mundane as learning to drive will give her a sense of control.
When Mason MacCoy takes an interest in Charlene, she still feels she needs to focus on others instead of herself. In a tale of growth and self-examination, Ms. Matlock gives readers an inside view of her well-defined characters. For those who have read Ms. Matlocks previous related novel LOST HIGHWAYS, this is a nice trip down memory lane. For those that havent, this is simply a great read. (Aug., 448 pp., $5.99)
