She’s not homeless. Her home’s just 25,000 miles around!
Casey’s brand new in Sweet Grove; she hitchhiked in with a delivery truck and is ready to hitch back out again when she finds a guy trying to save a litter of abandoned puppies. She hops a fence and breaks into a locked shed to get them out, but now they’ve got a whole lot of little mouths to feed.
Peter’s a straightlaced guy who’s been helping out at his dad’s siding business, but as soon as he graduates high school, he’s entering the military.
Peter’s got his whole future planned out, and Casey doesn’t fit at all. Even so, she’s the most intriguing gal he’s ever met. Although she swears she’ll never accept help from anyone, she’s about to come face to face with a crisis she can’t solve on her own . . . and maybe Peter can’t help her either.
Wander about hill country Texas in this quirky novella about sacrifice, trust, and how to hop onto a moving train.
