Owl Melonvine is lost and alone in the barren deserts of post-apocalyptic America until an accident drops her into the hands of a mysterious Islander with no name. With his imposing stature and unknown intentions—and past mistakes haunting her—she is hesitant to accept help but has no other choice. Traveling together along buckled highways and through overgrown ruins, secrets are shared, pasts are explored, and feelings creep into damaged hearts.
Getting to her destination is not an easy task, even with her sarcastic and gentlemanly companion at her side. Dangerous and bizarre things wait at each turn of the road, and Owl’s past choices travel with her. Will the miles she walks put enough distance between her and old wounds? And does road’s end lead to a new love and new life?
