Description
Widowhood came late in life to Ina and Helene, two sisters living in Chicago. Now there is nothing holding them back from one last great adventure: a long, leisurely drive to visit family in Los Angeles. Only Helene knows how to operate an automobile, however, and she has been blind for years. But with caustic, beer-swigging Ina as her eyes, she's willing to get behind the wheel once again. And now, on sparsely traveled back roads in the dead of night -- cruising at a comfortable twelve miles per hour -- they're off to see an America they never knew.

display_descriptionTwo widows take to the road across America in this ambitious novel by Charles Dickinson. Helene, who is blind, does the driving. Her sister, Ina, shows the way, and together they break free into the light they feared had gone out of their lives. They cross a landscape whose dangers are secondary to the perilous memories and secrets they share. Their goal-Los Angeles, home to Ina's children-shimmers like a mirage on the horizon of their plans. Charles Dickinson has invested these two women with a remarkable spirit: In a vast and intricate weaving of truth and memory he has created two unforgettable sisters with the courage, the wit, and the tenacity to embark upon a journey that redefines for themselves and their families the kind of women they will be for the rest of their lives.
