Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385729391, Hardcover)Lucy is a baby when she joins the Sandoni clan: Rocco (one of three Sandoni brothers) wins a Buick convertible in a poker game; Rhodi (one of five Sandoni sisters) finds Lucy abandoned in the backseat. Eighteen years later, all six of her Sandoni “aunts” having died, Lucy waits for a sign that it’s time to leave the stifling New York household of her domineering “uncles.” After all, signs, as Rhodi taught her, are meant to be followed!
So when a fire engulfs the Sandoni Brothers’ business, Lucy flees town. She heads west, getting off at Gardenia, Iowa, where the offbeat folk welcome her. The past, however, isn’t easy to leave behind. Lucy’s deceased aunts pay her regular visits. Lucy also fears that her uncles will track her down. Should she stay in Gardenia or should she push on? And as her old life catches up with her, Lucy feels lost. She’ll have to remember that wanting to get lost is often the quickest means of finding your way.
