Dottie Meyers, 35, is a real-life Dorothy Gale living with her little black dog on a small farm in Kansas that’s about to be hit by a tornado. Knocked unconscious by the storm, she awakes three months later at a recovery facility in California where her father, last seen when she was four, has left her a mysterious pair of ruby slippers.But unlike The Wizard of Oz, this isn’t a dream, and the yellow brick road journey that Dottie and three friends are about to take from Los Angeles to Seattle in search of her dad will show the realities of a broken childhood. More importantly, everything connected to those sparkling red shoes will prove to Dottie that there’s only one true wonder worker behind the so-called curtain who can heal her wounds and prepare the heart for love.

Leanna Ellis, formerly known to readers as Leanna Wilson, sold more than one million romance books and won numerous awards before taking a new creative direction with her much-acclaimed 2007 novel, Elvis Takes a Back Seat. She lives with her family in Keller, Texas.From School Library Journal:
Injured by a tornado that hit her Kansas home, 35-year-old Dottie Meyers wakes up three months later in a California health facility, where her long-absent father has left her a pair of ruby slippers. Dottie, along with three friends, sets off to find her father to resolve her feelings about him and what happened to their family so long ago. Addressing the fragility of broken childhoods and lost dreams, Ellis's latest (after Elvis Takes a Back Seat) will appeal to devotees of women's fiction.
