Kate and her husband, Cliff after 25 years of marriage are splitting up. She will get the house in CA. Nina their daughter is leaving for college.
The car breaks down, Ford is his name and she invites him into her house and lets him use her husbands bathroom and clothes. She hears his story of how they traveled across the US and can't find a home so he puts his wife and children in a woman's homeless shelter so the children can attend school.
He has a sign that says he will work for money in hopes he can make enough to rent an apartment for them all. Kate gives him the Christmas gifts meant for her husband and other gifts for his wife. Alternating chapters of how each is coping with their circumstances.
At times it's confusing to figure out if they're in the past or the present as she talks to her family members and you realize it's the past.
His wife thinks she's just using her husband for her own gain as she's lonely without her daughter and her soon to be ex husband.
So much changes for them all as they continue to live and work. She becomes pregnant and that causes them to come together...
Love how everything that's happened and changed Kate's outlook on life and what she wants to do with the money from the sale of her house.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
Kate didn't wallow in self-pity or a sea of depression when her husband left her. Instead, she admirably established her independence and found a meaningful purpose for life, helping homeless people, turning her life aorund for the better! I think that although I am not generally a prejudice or judgement person, a part of me has considered homeless people to be in their predicament by their own laziness, unwillingness to work or substance abuse. This book certainly gave strong insight into the plight of regular people who became homeless due to no fault of their own, such as losing the family farm because of the economy. No matter how hard they work to overcome their homeless situation, there are so many obsticles, particularly bureaucratic ones, that knock them down. If it wasn't for the kindness of strangers, and someone willing to give them a chance, they couldn't break out of their situation. Their struggles cause a strain on family dynamics and broken spirits. I appreciate how this book opened my eyes to the other side of the story, and showed an aspect of homelessness that I might not have considered before. Who would have thought that this little book would have dealt with such a heavy social issue in such a light-hearted way? Makes me want to go out and perform as many random acts of kindness as I can!
Kate rebounded quite well to her situation, but I thought she was a bit emotionless toward what her husband had done to her.

Her plan for her own salvation by helping others was a great one and I was disappointed to see her give in to her faithless husband so easily. She should have gone ahead with selling the home since she had already agreed to do so with a family and let crafty Cliff find his own salvation. But maybe things worked out O.K. anyway, just that she could have done more with the proceeds from the house sale.
