It's the early 1970's. Kd Grace interrupts the boredom of college for a grand adventure. Hitchhiking through Mexico with a complete stranger, she finds kindness and generosity in the unforgettable characters she encounters. For every step forward, unfathomable health issues threaten to bury her in the merciless heat. The narrative gallops to the cadence of kd’s indomitable passion for life.
Aside from the sheer suspense of hitchhiking through Mexico in the company of a stranger, kd Grace paints her characters and locations with rich, unique descriptions. There is never a dull moment. At each turn, new situations arise, requiring keen perception, quick thinking, and ingenuity. Meanwhile, kd’s body is being attacked by forces she will not understand or recognize till many years later. kd’s grace is her presentation of the cast of dynamic, oddball characters whom she meets along the way. Warts and all, she describes these people with candor, generosity, and without judgment.
