EVERY WRITER KNOWS YOU CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN. But that's just what is required of West Texas expatriate Dee Bennett-Kaufmann when her mother is badly injured in a mysterious car accident. Single-again “Dr. Dee” has never been on the “A-team” in her trendy East Coast MFA program. When a prestigious summer fellowship gives her the chance to finally finish her book, salvage her career, and spend some quality time with her college-age daughter — Dee's certain her luck is about to change. Returning to care for her irascible, widowed mother threatens all of that. With so much at stake, Dee engineers a series of unorthodox strategies and creative tradeoffs to keep her options in play—and despite herself finds friendship, love, and the power of words in the unlikeliest of places.

"A rich and life-affirming story about obstacles, growth and empathy. Ellington and Brannon show that, of course you can go home again -- and if you do it right, you might not want to leave. The Paragraph Ranch is a meaningful book that will stay in your heart. I know it will in mine. -Martha Louise Hunter, Author of Painting JulianaAbout the Author:
