Lucy Tucker, the crotchety old bag lady from the popular Yada Yada House of Hope series, is a veteran of Chicago streets and not about to give up her independence, even as she approaches her 80th birthday.
Until, that is, a young displaced woman with her gentle aging mother and a dog named Dandy seem to need her — unsettling the secretive Lucy, who doesn’t let anyone get too close. But just when it seems her past is catching up with her to bring her in out of the cold… Lucy disappears again. How these two tales intersect and intertwine between past and present gradually shines light into the dark corners of Lucy’s murky past. But… why won’t Lucy come home?
I got right into Cindy’s story. I love history, and so disappearing into a part of the past that I know little about – migrant farm workers – was really interesting, especially since my great-grandfather used to talk about farming long ago. As Cindy met Bo and was attracted to the bright lights and the lure of the circus, I could see how exciting the circus must be after the extreme poverty and difficulties she faced each day.
