Author Sandra Joinesabout this book: Boston Calbreth's grandmother raised her to be a warrior, but her controlling husband knows just how to chip away at her fighting spirit. Upon discovering he's been cheating on her with half the women in Mount Vernon, Kentucky, she vows to get away—one way or another. But nobody leaves Charlie.

She packs up her 1960 Coupe de Ville convertible and with her grandmother's ashes in the front seat, hits the road. She soon learns the coldest winter in twenty years won't keep campgrounds deserted. First, a feisty cat with an attitude decides to attach himself to her grandmother's urn. Then, a jade-eyed stranger who melts her heart keeps showing up, causing her to question if he is simply a coincidence.

She takes refuge in the small town of Apalachicola, Florida, before an attempt to escape her vengeful husband takes her on a terrifying journey to Tate's Hell Swamp. Can she ever escape the horrible wrath of her husband or the darkness of the swamp? Can something as simple as a shoe change the course of her life?

People have me asked how in the word I came up with the title Shoe in the Road, and it's an easy answer. While talking with my husband one day, the phrase "shoe in the road" popped up. Immediately, I said, "That would be a great name for a book." (I stored it away in my head.) Later, I thought about the story behind an item such as a shoe, by itself and sitting in the road. Why is it there? How did it get there? To whom did it belong? A story soon began to unfold in my mind. What role does the shoe have to the story? I can't tell you without giving away too much. Guess you'll have to wait until you finish reading the book to understand.
