    Book details

For Las Vegas widow Naomi, memories of a Pennsylvania Dutch childhood are
an ache from the distant past, a painful memory of abandoned roots and lost
connections. She has long since reconciled herself to the shattered dream
of what had once enticed her from her heritage--a tiny apartment thick with
loneliness and regret, the sad lives of her two sons, and her sole
consolation: the friendship with daughter-in-law Ruth. But when hard living
claims both of Naomi's boys, she and Ruth turn Naomi's creaky Impala
eastward in a desperate last-chance bid for hope and meaning. Thus begins
an adventure: a cross-country odyssey that brings Naomi home to her old
farm in Lancaster County--and to the values and rhythms of a life once
spurned. Although never having seen the East before, Ruth finds a home here
too, among the slow and authentic cadences of Pennsylvania farm country.
Can two women from different backgrounds and generations, overwhelmed with
life and loss, find healing for wounds once thought too deep to heal? Does
life offer any real second choices and chances? Can modern paths, after
leaving all that was good and true, ever truly lead home?

  • By Mrs. Frances H. Brown on 7 October 2009

    This is compulsive reading, an excellent modern version of the story of Ruth. It could have felt very artificial but it fits perfectly into the modern world.

    I found this book a little slow to get into but once it got going I could hardly put it down.
