Generally, when I start reading a Jodi Thomas book, I'm hooked by the bottom of the first page. This book was so slow getting started that I was about half-way finished before I really got interested in this novel. This book was a disappointment.

There are three stories woven around tiny Crossroads, Texas near Lubbock. Ms. Thomas does a great job of capturing the essence of the elderly eccentrics and the town gossips. One story is about Staten Kirkwood, a rancher with large holdings. His wife and (later) his son died; he is empty and drifting. Ms. Quinn O'Grady, best friend of Staten's wife (all three were life-long friends) has become a safe haven for Staten.

Lucas Reyes has one goal to go to college next fall. In the meantime, he attends high school and works part-time for Staten Kirkwood. An ill wind blows Yancy Grey into town; he's an ex-con trying to decide if he wants to go straight or case Crossroads for a quick heist and be on his way.

Life happens and each man is changed by his experiences. This is obviously the opening salvo in a multi-part, contemporary series about the Crossroads-Ransom Canyon area.
