Setting: Depression-era West

RT Rating

Book two in Dorothy Garlock's Depressionera Route 66 trilogy tells
the evocative story of Margie Kinnard's struggle to achieve her dream of
becoming a movie star. While en route
to California, Ernie Harding steals her
savings, and all appears to be lost until Margie's estranged father arrives to help her on her journey.

They join a caravan headed for
the promise of riches in the Golden State. Ernie reappears and shortly
afterward, her father is found dead. Margie wonders if perhaps Ernie murdered him and turns to rancher
Brady Hoyt to help her uncover
the truth.

No one evokes the Depression like Garlock. She brings the pain,
the triumphs and the grittiness to life. Her solid, realistic characters who forge ahead in hard times and the pure Americana of these stories offer a compelling escape. This is a great, hopeful read for the new year. SWEET (Jan., 416 pp., $12.00)
