Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Maurey Pierce Talbot is too smart, too feisty, and too funny to be making such a mess of her twenty-two-year-old life. Despite denials always clever, often hilarious Maurey is rapidly becoming the town drunk. But on the May day she takes one drink too many and accidentally misplaces her baby (thereby giving her husband all the excuse he needs to boot her out), even Maurey has to admit she's hit bottom. So when two old reprobates, AA zealots both, turn up and offer her a ride in exchange for gas money, the legal cover of her still-valid driver's license, and an old horse trailer owned by her late and much-lamented dad (to haul the Coors they plan to sell illegally in the South), Maurey agrees.

And so begins one of the oddest hegiras in American roadtrip history as this less-than-cordial threesome sets out to cover twenty-five hundred miles of good-ol'-boy '70s America. What Maurey finds as she crosses the country will turn a trip into a quest and change a girl into a woman.
