The open road is the only place that seems safe to Shirley “Mutt” Hopper. Escaping her Mississippi home, she joins the other wanderers, riding freight trains and working in fields and orchards across the United States. When she begs a night’s sleep in a Nebraska barn, she can’t imagine how completely the lovely farmer’s daughter, Annie Callahan, is about to change her life.
Many years and hard knocks later, Mutt finds that at least Annie was able to pursue her dreams. Now a glamorous, wealthy and pampered movie star married to one of Hollywood’s leading men, Annie seems totally out of reach.
How could Mutt possibly take away Annie’s perfect life, even in the name of love?
It’s bum times and good times and the power of love in a sweeping romance from the award-winning author of Not Every River and Spring Tide!

The Farmer's Daughter — Finalist, Lesbian Historical Fiction.
Historical Fiction at its Best! McCoy's writing style is rich and evocative. A great joy to read. With a few sentences the Southern summer, the spring or whatever she sets her pen to come alive and engage all senses. The characters are multi-dimensional and engaging... Where there was despair hope prevails.
Terry's Lesfic Reviews
...This goes beyond any run of the mill romance story, although there is a deep and emotional, forever kind of love running through the book... This is on my re-read list to read at a more leisurely pace, so I can savor the story without the pressure of not knowing the ending.
