Grief. Hope. Love. Sword fights. And the crisp glory of fried okra.

Ex-cocktail waitress and convenience story professional Eudora Pea O'Brien is filled with grief and regret, low on cash, and all alone. Headed down the hot, dusty back roads of central Texas, Pea is convinced she'll find a sign leading her to the reincarnated soul of the sister who raised her. A sign that she's found her place in the world of the living again.

At least that's what the psychic promised.

In an unforgettably funny and poignant journey, Pea collects an unlikely family of strays: a starving kitten, a pregnant teenager, a sexy con man trying to go straight, and a ferocious gun dealer named Glory, who introduces Pea to the amazing, sword-wielding warrior goddesses of Texas author Robert E. Howard - creator of the Conan the Barbarian novels - and celebrated in festival every year. Six foot tall, red-headed Pea looks good with a sword in her hand.

Glory, the goddesses, and a grandmotherly café owner become Pea's unlikely gurus as she struggles to learn swordplay and the art of perfect fried okra. She'll have to master both if she's going to find what matters most - her own lost soul.

    " I just downloaded this to my Kindle for free and was surprised how quickly I was into it. Since I live in and love Texas that was a big plus for this book. Then throw in adjectives like eccentric, vulnerable, and heroic well that was enough to get me started. The first 2 chapters enough to keep me going. I let you know what I think when I am finished.

    " What a quirky book. I liked it but it was odd. The main character is on a quest to find her deceased sister who she thinks may be reincarnated as a new person. She picks up some oddball characters along the way. "

    " This is just a so-so read. A girl discovers to open up her heart and she discovers that a family sometimes fits a different definition than the traditional one. "

    " Reminds me a bit of Barbara Kingsolver, but this chick is at a more beginning level of understanding the world. Still it was fun. "
