This humorous and touching tale captivated my attention and had me searching through the dictionary. The heroine's vocabulary is impressive to say the least. I enjoyed the search for her father even though I had a good idea of who it would be. This book is as good as the author's others and I only want to know one thing...When will we be lucky enough to read a new novel by Sarah Bird?
The best journey is one you didn't plan on taking.

Sonja K. Getz, a young woman in search of her father, dismantles the shrine to him on her closet floor, packs all her important belongings in one suitcase, and leaves her mother and new step-father. Forcing her big-shouldered way into the company of Prairie James -- a man well on his way to being a has-been trick roper and whom she half-suspects as being her father -- Sonja starts her journey as a quest for an unknown man only to have it become a discovery of the unknown woman she has been suppressing. All of her formidable education can not prepare her for what she is about to learn on the small town rodeo circuit. A great cast of characters abound -- misfits, superficially, but each the star of a little morality play.
