When the spring of 1946 comes, Katherine Callahan decides to leave her loving husband and newborn baby so that she may embark upon an unknowingly tragic journey across the famous American highway from Chicago to her sister's home in Burbank. She never does arrive.
Fast forward into the present, Kevin Callahan, Katherine's grandson, along with his best friend Cheryl Bachman, traces his grandmother's steps along the now decommissioned road to uncover the mystery surrounding her disappearance. They are armed with only a handful of postcards from Katherine and a Victorian secret code involving postage stamps surrounding a mysterious man from her past. This, along with Cheryl's detective skills and an unusual, paranormal connection between Kevin and his grandmother transcending time itself, bring them closer to the truth as their lives merge in 1946.

I am happy to tell other readers that this is a wonderful read. Spring is coming and this one will be ideal for a nice glass of iced tea and the lovely weather. When I first saw it, I was sure I wouldn't like it. But once I got started, I realized that it was a story I was not going to be able to put down. I did finish it in less than a day. The characters are beautifully written and the setting as well. You will not regret the purchase.
