Description - Independence Day by Jim Keeble

Newly-weds are difficult to avoid in Niagra Falls. Each year 500,000 freshly hitched sweethearts book into one of the 55 motels offering heart-shaped jacuzzis, tiger rugs and mirrored ceilings. That's 700 couples a day. Not the best place to be then, when your girlfriend rejects your proposal of marriage, and proposes instead that you go your separate ways. His self-esteem heading south, Jim Keeble decides to follow suit, hoping that the United States - and the women of America - can help mend his broken heart. He says viva to Las Vegas and the showgirls of the 21st century; tries to catch a crab-catcher's daughter in historic Virginia, and cheers on an ex-cheerleader on a Dude ranch in Arizona. Funny and romantic, INDEPENDENCE DAY is a true-life travelogue of a broken heart.
