Ken Casper weaves two tales -- one about a love lost, one about a son separated by years of lies from his father -- in the heart-tugging Miles Apart (4). When NASCAR superstar Jack is told about his ex-wife's death, Jack hopes for a reconciliation with his estranged son, Johnny. Johnny's stepfather, a famous Formula One driver, told him lies about Jack and, subsequently, Johnny followed in his stepfather's footsteps. When Johnny decides to switch to the NASCAR circuit to teach his father a lesson, the two get to know each other again. At the same time, Jack gets involved with an old love, Meg, who helps reunite father and son. The book's a delight, even though the subplot involving Meg's daughter's suspected drug use falls a little flat.
