Broke and knocked up, she's got all her worldly possessions crammed into six giant trash bags, and nowhere to go. Try as she might, Mattie can no longer deny that she really is turning into her mother, a broken alcoholic who never met a bad choice she didn't make. When Mattie gets news of a possible inheritance left by a grandmother she's never met, she jumps at this one last chance to turn things around. Leaving the Florida Panhandle, she drives eight hundred miles to her mother's birthplace, the tiny town of Gandy, Oklahoma. There, she soon learns that her mother remains a local mystery, a happy, talented teenager who inexplicably skipped town thirty-five years ago with nothing but the clothes on her back.
