Product Description

In 1934, Nora Cassidy's sharecropper husband takes his own life. She is left destitute, and with an eight-year-old daughter to support. When her Uncle Alonzo invites them to come and live with him and his wife Myrtle, she jumps at the chance. She sets out on a five hundred mile journey to the Texas Panhandle in a 1928 open-cab Ford pickup. Trouble follows her. When she and Dede stop in an isolated spot to have lunch, she loses her pickup key.

Cliff Windom is running for his life from a man who will shoot him on sight. He crosses paths with Nora and offers to help her start her pickup if she will let him travel with her and Dede.

They begin a journey that will change all three of their lives forever.

Excerpt

When she had Dede alone, Nora was going to have a long talk with her daughter about what she should and shouldn’t discuss with strangers. "Please, Mr. Windom, get on with what you have to do."

Cliff moved to the fender on the driver’s side and raised the hood.

Dede followed behind him and stood looking over his shoulder. "If I can’t help, can I at least watch?"

Nora came to stand behind Dede. "I hope you know what you are doing."

"I do." Cliff examined the leads to the battery. "I’ve done this before, many times."

That niggling fear came back to nag at Nora. What kind of man was an expert at starting cars this way?

Dede watched him intently. "What are you doing now?"

"I’m attaching the battery’s positive wire to the small wire on the starter relay. Once they connect, the motor will turn over."

"Wow." Dede’s eyes rounded.

"Get in the pickup," Cliff said. "Be ready to move when the motor starts."

Dede got in on the driver’s side and scooted across to the other side.

Nora slid in under the steering wheel. Who did this man think he was? He was giving orders like he was in charge here. She vowed that before he had a chance to get in, she would leave him in her dust.

Cliff leaned on the pickup door and put his face through the window until it was inches from hers. "Don’t get some idea of leaving me behind unless you know how to stop this tub of bolts and then restart it."

"Get in," Nora snapped. He trusted her about as much as she trusted him.

She waited until he was in the bed of the pickup before she pulled onto the road, and drove a mile or so before turning onto a state highway. The sun had begun its westerly decline. She had planned to be in Leakey before sundown. At this rate, she would be lucky to be there by dark.
