Caney Paxton wanted his cafe to have the biggest and brightest sign in Eastern Oklahoma-the "opening soon" part was supposed to be just a removable, painted notice. But a fateful misunderstanding gave Vietnam vet Caney the flashiest joke in the entire state. Twelve years later, the once-busy highway is dead and the sign is as worn as Caney, who hasn't ventured outside the diner since it opened. Then one blustery December day, a thirtyish Crow woman blows in with a three-legged dog in her arms and a long-buried secret on her mind. Hiring on as a carhop, Vena Takes Horse is soon shaking up business, the locals, and Caney's heart...as she teaches them all about generosity of spirit, love, and the possibility of promise-just like the sign says.

While also taking place in her first novel's setting of Sequoyah, OK, this one has a different set of quirky people. A few are stock characters, but by the end most have become friends, not just to each other, but to the reader. The same warmth and humanity pervade a story in which not much, and yet everything, happens. A lovely book that begs for a sequel, as it leaves some dangling ends.
