Summary
Naomi, a Las Vegas widow with a Mennonite background, and her cocktail waitress daughter-in-law, Ruth, embark on a cross-country journey in search of hope and meaning that leads them to Naomi's old farm in Lancaster County
Summary
For Naomi Kauffman Yoder, memories of a Pennsylvania Dutch childhood, abandoned roots, lost connections, and shattered dreams have left her with nothing but loneliness and regret. For Ruth Escalante Yoder, daughter-in-law and friend to Naomi, she concludes that leaving Las Vegas is the only option left to her. So begins their odyssey--a cross-country quest in Naomi's creaky old Impala as she returns to her family farm in Lancaster County, to the values of a life once spurned. Although never having seen the East before, Ruth too is looking for a place to call home. Will she find it among the slow, quiet rhythms of Pennsylvania farm country? Far more than a simple road trip, their drive home becomes a journey of the soul
