Robin loves Chris with all her heart and he says he loves her, but he is
clearly excited about his future and leaving Iowa. Its summer and she can’t

it would be. She finds herself becoming the buffer in this grieving, dysfunctional
family as she helps them come to terms with each other and themselves.
Robin surprises herself with her strength and ability. Read about her trip
across the American west and the discoveries that Robin makes. (Tookie
