Welcome to Quinn, Montana, population: 956. A town where nearly all of the volunteer firemen are named Jim, where the Dirty Shame - the only bar in town - refuses to serve mixed drinks (too much work), where the locals hate the newcomers (then again, they hate the locals, too), and where the town softball team has never even come close to having a winning season. Until now.
Rachel Flood has snuck back into town after leaving behind a trail of chaos nine years prior. She's here to make amends, but nobody wants to hear it, especially her mother, Laverna. But with the help of a local boy named Jake and a little soul searching, she just might make things right.
In the spirit of Empire Falls and A League of Their Own, with the caustic wit of Where'd You Go, Bernadette thrown in for good measure, Richard Fifield's hilarious and heartwarming debut will have you laughing through tears.

Trashy unfunny people
I sometimes quit a book before finishing it - this didn't hold my interest I was looking for something like Where'd you go Bernadette? This book is nothing like that - not funny, not charming. Drug addicts and meanness.

WOW! Just WOW.
This book is wonderful. If you have ever had a questionable past, loved a child that was not yours biologically and a little different, went to a bar, had hillbilly friends or just lived a life that's a little crazy...you might find some of yourself in here.
The characters are like people you know and maybe watch their hot mess of a life from a far while wanting to wrap them up and tell them "its going to be okay".
Don't miss this book, it will touch your heart and call to your soul. You will laugh, cry, cheer, and. miss this cast of characters when you are done.
Great story. Great narrator. its worth 2 credits but you will only spend one.
Not for young children.
