Featuring: India; Jack
Add to Wish List
A successful Web designer, forty-year-old India has a
fabulously hip life in Denver and a sexy Irish lover in New
York who jets out to see her on bi-weekly visits. The
long-distance romance suits India just fine: Though Jack is
the only man who has ever made India feel truly alive, she
doesnâ€™t want things to get too serious. But then her father
passes away, and India must honor the promise she made to
him: to look after her mother when heâ€™s gone.
Suddenly India finds herself back in Colorado Springs with
the woman who both intrigues and infuriates her. Eldora is
sixty something and exquisitely gorgeous, but her
larger-than-life personality can suck the air out of a room.
True to form, Eldora throws India a curveball, insisting
that they hit the road to look for Indiaâ€™s twin, Gypsy, a
brilliant artist who lives a vagabondâ€™s existence in the
remote mountain towns of New Mexico. It looks like India
canâ€™t avoid her motherâ€™s intensity any longer, especially
after she discovers stunning secrets from Eldoraâ€™s past.
Thirty years ago, Eldora regaled her twin girls with
glamorous stories about her days as a Las Vegas showgirlâ€“
stories of martinis and music at the Sahara, back when Frank
and Sammy ruled the town. But the story of how she really
ended up in Sin City, and the unsavory life sheâ€™d run from
with her daughters in tow, is full of details sheâ€™s never
seen fit to shareâ€“until now.
As mother and daughter sail down Route 66, the very road
Eldora drove those many years ago, looking for Gypsy, while
passing motels, diners, and souvenir shops, Eldora must
relive a lifetime of memories that have tormented her before
she can put them to rest once and for all...
