Penguin Putnam
Beloved by fans and acclaimed by critics, Jane Roberts Wood, author of Grace and The Train to Estelline trilogy, returns with a contemporary novel-a keenly observed tale of big-hearted people in small-town Texas as only she can tell it.

Roseborough is the story of two women brought together by circumstance who impact each other and forever change the way both view the world and themselves. At its heart is newly widowed Mary Lou, a Dairy Queen counter clerk left with only her fourteen-year-old daughter, Echo. When Echo runs away and won't return, Mary Lou searches for answers by signing up for a single-parenting class. Peopled by an extraordinary group and taught by Anne (who probably should know better) the entire class-led by Anne-soon becomes irrevocably enmeshed in Mary Lou's quest.
