Dorothy Garlock lives in Clear Lake, Iowa.From Booklist:
In 1932 Route 66 through Sayre, Oklahoma, saw a steady stream of dust bowl refugees, and many stopped at the garage owned by one-legged Andy Connors for fuel, repairs, a drink of water, or to rest in his campground. Big, brawny, and relatively well-off, H. L. Yates has come to Sayre to pay an old debt to Andy and finds the perfect way to do it when Andy is bitten by a rabid skunk. After taking him to the hospital, Yates takes over running the garage and watching over widowed Andy's young daughters and strong-willed sister-in-law, Leona, who the small-minded people of the small town have branded as a fallen woman. Yates, who wants no attachments, falls hard for Leona, whose sanctimonious holy-roller brother is a real threat to her and Andy's girls. Best-selling Garlock's endearing characters and vividly depicted milieu will enchant her legions of readers. Garlock's claim, "I write to entertain my readers," is fully validated with this suspenseful romance. Diana Tixier Herald
