Days before her wedding, Tara Barlow ditches her fiancé and her hometown to head west in her prize Mustang after she discovers that her dream wedding venue—the White Cliffs—has burned down.

Tara’s alarmed family sends the town psychic, Guida, to find her. When she tracks Tara to a town full of Fellini-esque characters, the two find themselves surprised but requited in their mutual attraction. They immediately hit the road, attempting to live out the happy ending Thelma and Louise only dreamed about.

Ellen Cooney is the author of three novels. Her stories appear in The New Yorker, The Literary Review, and Story magazines. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
