Grenadine Scotch Wild has only vague memories of the parents she last saw when she was six years old. But she's never forgotten their final, panicked words to her, urging Grenadine to run. The mystery of their disappearance is just one more frayed strand in a life that has lately begun to unravel completely. One year into her rocky marriage to Covey, a well-known investor, he is arrested for fraud and embezzlement. And Grenadine, now a successful collage artist and painter, is facing jail time despite her innocence.
With Covey refusing to exonerate her unless she comes back to him, Grenadine once again takes the advice given to her so long ago: she runs. Hiding out in a mountain town in central Oregon until the trial, she finds work as a bartender and as assistant to a furniture maker who is busy rebuilding his own life. But even far from everything she knew, Grenadine is granted a rare chance, as potentially liberating as it is terrifying - to face down her past, her fears, and live a life as beautiful and colorful as one of her paintings.

"Lamb is an awesome storyteller and moves seamlessly from the past to the present." (RT Book Reviews)
loved it .... it was so good ...I cried ...I laughed. ..I cried .... and when you think she is going to end the book your wrong she wraps everything up with no loose ends ... it's one of those books that gives you perspective ... reminds you what is important in life and just be thankful
I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
A good story about a girl who, because of her tragic upbringing, grows into a strong woman who makes her own future. Great character driven journey that is a nice romance with out the sappy side.
