A successful web designer, forty-year-old India has a fabulously hip life in Denver and a sexy Irish lover in New York who jets out to see her on bi-weekly visits. The long-distance romance suits India just fine: though Jack is the only man who has ever made India feel truly alive, she doesn’t want things to get too serious. But then her father passes away, and India must honor the promise she made to him: to look after her mother when he’s gone.

Suddenly India finds herself back in Colorado Springs with the woman who both intrigues and infuriates her. Eldora is sixty-something and exquisitely gorgeous, but her larger-than-life personality can suck the air out of a room. True to form, Eldora throws India a curveball, insisting that they hit the road to look for India’s twin, Gypsy, a brilliant artist who lives a vagabond’s existence in the remote mountain towns of New Mexico. It looks like India can’t avoid her mother’s intensity any longer, especially after she discovers stunning secrets from Eldora’s past.

As mother and daughter sail down Route 66, the very road Eldora drove those many years ago, looking for Gypsy, while passing motels, diners, and souvenir shops, Eldora must relive a lifetime of memories that have tormented her before she can put them to rest once and for all.

Award-winning author Barbara Samuel brings us a heartfelt story of second chances and unexpected detours. As two women come to terms with themselves and each other, the past unravels and the future spreads out before them like the open road.

    " I really enjoyed reading this book - good family dynamincs and lots of plot revelations. The character of the mom (Eudora)examines Las Vegas from the eyes of one who had been involved in the heyday of the Rat Pack. This is a good summer read. "

    " It was a pretty good book, a story of a girl in her mom driving cross country and learning stories about her mom she never knew. "

    " This book was good, but nothing spectacular. I waffled between three and four stars for this one because it's not that it was bad or that I disliked the story because that is definitely not the case. It just lacked a certain... hook. It was missing something that would have made me love it. "

    " Fun but quirkly little book. Mother/ Daughter road trip to hell. This is where you learn there is only so much you want to know about your Mother's love life. "
