"A whimsical, humorous, and passionate mystery that explores the love and hurt of a father and daughter on the run." -Jorge Ramos, News Anchor for Univision and Bestselling Author While serving a sentence in a Mexican prison, Libertad GonzAlez passes the time at the weekly Library Club, reading to her fellow inmates from whatever books she can find in the prison's meager supply. With her stories, Libertad enthralls a group of female prisoners every bit as eccentric as the tales she tells. But the story that emerges has nothing to do with the words printed on the pages. Instead, she tells the story of Joaquin GonzAlez, a former professor and fugitive of the Mexican government who reinvents himself as a trucker in the United States. There he falls in love with a wild woman with whom he shares his truck and his life, until he unexpectedly finds himself alone on the road with a baby girl. Joaquin and his daughter make the cab of an 18-wheeler their home, sharing everything-adventures, books, truck-stop chow, and memories of the girl's mother-until the girl grows into a woman, and a chance encounter with one man causes her to rebel against another.
