Publisher's Summary

Fifty-six-year-old Grace faces her worst nightmare: the death of her son. When Grace’s daughter confesses she’s at fault, Grace knows she should reassure her. But she can’t.

Virgil is about to leave for his once-a-year cross-country trip, building inventory for his doll shop. In a haze of grief, Grace asks if she can go along. Sixty-five-year-old Virgil is gay and unsure how he feels about the gay rights battle. His longtime long-distance lover proposes marriage, something never before possible. But it would require Virgil to give up his home and business.

Their journey takes them to a farm with five-legged cows and two-headed calves and a factory that makes the sweetest candy corn. Their futures are predicted over leftovers in a roadside diner, and they forage in flea markets and auctions and old barns.

Together, Grace and Virgil cross road after crossroad, trying to find home and family.
