About this item
Ro Grandee is the perfect Texas housewife. She's determined to be nothing like her long-missing mother, the one who left her with only a heap of old novels and her father's fists for company, so Ro keeps quiet and takes her husband's punches like a lady. But Ro wasn't always this way. Underneath her pastel skirts and hidden bruises lies Rose Mae Lolley, teenaged spitfire, Alabama heartbreaker, and a crack shot with a pistol. Rose Mae is resurrected when a gypsy's tarot cards foretell doom for dutiful Ro: her handsome husband is going to kill her. Unless she kills him first. Armed with only her wit, her pawpy's ancient .45, and her dog Fat Gretel, Rose escapes and heads cross country, unearthing a host of family secrets along the way. What she discovers will force her to choose between the past and her future--between being a victim or a survivor.
