Suddenly India finds herself back in Colorado Springs with the woman who both intrigues and infuriates her. Eldora is sixty something and exquisitely gorgeous, but her larger-than-life personality can suck the air out of a room. True to form, Eldora throws India a curveball, insisting that they hit the road to look for Indiaâs twin, Gypsy, a brilliant artist who lives a vagabondâs existence in the remote mountain towns of New Mexico. It looks like India canât avoid her motherâs intensity any longer, especially after she discovers stunning secrets from Eldoraâs past.
Thirty years ago, Eldora regaled her twin girls with glamorous stories about her days as a Las Vegas showgirlâ stories of martinis and music at the Sahara, back when Frank and Sammy ruled the town. But the story of how she really ended up in Sin City, and the unsavory life sheâd run from with her daughters in tow, is full of details sheâs never seen fit to shareâuntil now.
As mother and daughter sail down Route 66, the very road Eldora drove those many years ago, looking for Gypsy, while passing motels, diners, and souvenir shops, Eldora must relive a lifetime of memories that have tormented her before she can put them to rest once and for all. . . .
Award-winning author Barbara Samuel brings us a heartfelt story of second chances and unexpected detours. As two women come to terms with themselves and each other, the past unravels and the future spreads out before them like the open road.
