Every writer knows you can't go home again, but that's just what is required of West Texas expatriate Dee Bennett-Kaufmann when her mother is badly injured in a mysterious car accident. Single-again "Dr. Dee" has never been on the A-team in her trendy East Coast MFA program. When a prestigious summer fellowship gives her the chance to finally finish her book, salvage her career, and spend some quality time with her college-age daughter, Dee's certain her luck is about to change. Returning to care for her irascible, widowed mother threatens all of that. With so much at stake, Dee engineers a series of unorthodox strategies and creative trade-offs to keep her options in play - and despite herself finds friendship, love, and the power of words in the unlikeliest of places.

Really enjoyed listening to this book as I drove back to my home state of Texas from Georgia. Liked the twist and turns and enjoyed the names and places from my childhood in west Texas. The reader was sub-par in my opinion and seemed to struggle greatly with trying to read this well written book with a Texas drawl.
