Tawni O'Dell has crafted a wonderful story of family, poverty, and the richness of friendship. Shae-Lynn is a former cop, turned cabbie in a mining town where nobody needs a cab but everyone needs a ride. When her long missing, very pregnant, sister returns to town followed by a Russian mobster, New York lawyer and a frantic housewife, her life turns upside down. She thought her father had killed her sister, Shannon, years before, and while her return should have been happy, many problems returned with her. Shae-Lynn has raised a wonderful son on her own, and her past quickly rises up to complicate things. This is a terrific story about how hard family can be, but in the end, they are still your family.
