Author's seventh novel. Charlotte Emory, a recent divorcee from Clarion, Maryland, is taken hostage during a bank robbery. "Now , suddenly, she is on the road, traveling with Jake Simms, Jr. --demolition derby driver, recent escapee from the Clarion County jail, 'victim of impulse." And we are swept surely, matter-of-factly, exuberently along with her, on her always anticipated journey and its altogether unexpected reshaping of her vision of the past and her image of the future" --from the rear flap.
