By 1935, countless vehicles had traversed Route 66, their hum creating a uniquely American song. Most were heading west - but roads go in two directions, and in Dorothy Garlock's riveting third novel featuring Route 66, the fabled highway is one that leads home. It's just a string of rundown cabins on a stretch of New Mexico highway. But returning to Cross Roads widowed, broke, and pregnant, Mary Lee Clawson knows her dad's motor court is a godsend. With steely resolve, she sets out to rebuild the failing business and discovers she has to fight more than foreclosure. There's her mother, Dolly - disinherited, angry, and whiskey-soaked-not to mention her disreputable friends. Still, Mary Lee wins champions: kind neighbours, a thirteen-year-old drifter who would die for her, and Jake Ramero, a man with a past whose disarming green eyes awaken emotions she has never felt before. Filled with new hope and braving new challenges, Mary Lee has to trust her heart to claim what is hers on Route 66.
