It has become apparent to Claire, who married her high-school sweetheart then divorced him 15 years later when he took up with a younger woman, that "real life" is out there somewhere and unless she looks, she will not find it. So she quits her job, packs her bags, and heads to Valentine, Oklahoma, hometown to the father she barely remembers. It's not much of a place, but having her car stolen from the Goodnight Motel parking lot compels her to stay awhile, and she discovers that folks there meet their responsibilities with love and honor, and rely on a higher power in times of need. They welcome Claire into their lives, and she not only finds "real life," she also finds love, although she lets it take its own good time. Matlock has set previous novels in Valentine, but her focus is so different in each book that the town seems new each time. A wonderful cast and a perfect setting make for a gentle and reassuring story. Danise Hoover

This book reminded me a lot of another I'd read with an abandoned pregnant teen. But it was good even if very reminiscent.
