From the author of Tully and The Bronze Horseman comes Lone Star, another unforgettable novel. This heart wrenching love story will have you sobbing as you follow a group of friends on a life affirming journey.

Chloe is weeks away from college as she embarks on a longed for trip to Barcelona with three of her dear friends. Her grandmother and parents only allow her to go if she promises to detour through the historic cities of Eastern Europe to connect with past family history.

The foursome set out on their journey full of youthful innocence. When Chloe meets American Johnny on a train everything changes. He carries a guitar and an easy smile but underneath the open exterior lies a dark past. Chloe’s relationship with Johnny puts her lifelong friendships in jeopardy.

From Treblinka to Trieste, from Carnikava to Krakow, they traverse Europe. As they continue their treacherous journey Chloe faces her deepest desires. Whatever the final destination, Chloe’s future plans are under threat.
