Ruby's a New Yorker-and everyone knows owning a car in Manhattan is a big hassle. For Ruby, the idea of driving brings back too many memories of a childhood spent riding all over the country with her mom in a beat-up car, never settling down on solid ground. But after meeting Ed Robbins at a country wedding, Ruby faces a tough decision-stay within her city limits, or move to Middleville, Connecticut, to make a future with Ed. It would mean being blissfully close to the guy she loves. It would alsomean (shudder) having to drive. Is any man worth that kind of sacrifice? And could anything short of an eighteen-wheeler haul both Ruby and her emotional baggage around? Ruby's always been a my-way-or-the-highway kind of girl. But on the road of love, you have to learn when to take the wheel-and when to yield.
