Publisher's Summary

A widow in her mid-thirties, Alison has been in mourning for two years. She lives in West Virginia with her sister and brother-in-law, and they are urging her to get on with her life and move back home. Alison promises to leave, just as soon as she renovates a nearly ruined 1976 Corvette rusting in their garage. Problem is, she doesn't know the first thing about cars, and the townspeople, with the exception of a cute demolition man whose idea of a date is taking Alison with him to blow up a grain silo, are completely bewildered by a woman messing with automotive parts.

Alison's Automotive Repair Manual is the powerful story of a woman who must come to terms with her life and discover the strength to overcome her grief.

    "Repairing more than cars"

    ALISON'S is both the repair manual of its title and a novel tracing repairs within and among characters. What lingers after reading it-- it's been more than a year since I finished it-- is the gentle affection for a wide range of quirky personalities, including an unforgettable expert in trivia who uses "little known facts" to negotiate relationships.
