Ruby Kincaid, recently widowed, is capable of single-handedly killing a rattlesnake, running her rural Texas bowling alley, and raising the children her daughter left behind when she disappeared four years ago. But when her daughter's pretty face appears in a television commercial, Ruby hauls the grandkids to LA to find her. Narrator Peggity Price injects charm and humor into the eventful journey and conveys Ruby's gentle fortitude. Price adds delightful zest to her characterizations of Ruby's mean-spirited mother-in-law and her sister, a slightly trampy and fun-loving middle-aged Texas gal. When the Winnebago hits Hollywood, Price delivers a deliciously amusing clash of cultures. Set in 1976, the story is sprinkled with witty references to the fashions and trends of the time.
