Product Description

For Las Vegas widow Naomi, memories of a Pennsylvania Dutch childhood are 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 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 the creaky Impala eastward in a desperate bid for hope and meaning. Thus begins a a cross-country odyssey that brings Naomi home to her old farm in Lancaster County, and to the values of a life once spurned. Although never having seen the East before, Ruth finds a home here too, among the slow 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?

Publisher's Description

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 dreams that had enticed her from her heritage and now simply lives in a tiny apartment, thick with loneliness and regret. Her sole consolation is her daughter-in-law Ruth.

But when hard living claims both of her boys, the two women turn Naomi's creaky Impala eastward in a desperate, last-chance bid for hope and meaning. Thus begins a cross-country odyssey that brings her home to her old farm in Lancaster County--and to the values and rhythms of a life once spurned. Although the East is foreign territory, Ruth also finds a home here among the slow and authentic cadences of Pennsylvania farm country. And she finds love...

    This was a pretty good book. I did enjoy the geographical descriptions of Ruth & Naomi's trip...also the descriptions of the Mennonite faith. It seemed at times to drag a bit; but overall was a good read.

    This book was given to me as a gift. Once I started reading it I could not put it down that I read it in less than a week. The book inspired and motivated me to go on In life and not look back to my bad past. God can redeem me. I highly recommend this book. Also, the scenic descriptions made me want to take a road trip.

    For the genre it was really good. I enjoyed the modernizing of the Biblical characters - I thought it was well done.

    Excellent, excellent, excellent reading. The Book Discussion Group at the Senior Center where I attend, selected this book as our reading for the month. We all enjoyed it. It was recommended to me from a friend wherein I ordered extra copies for frirnds and an audio copy for a blind member of the group.

    This book is an example of how God can heal the hurt and loss of life in a family. I do not know the author, and he was a little explicit, but the message got across, and it'sgood reading!
