Boondocking is a family's journey into parts unknown. In the RV world, "boondocking" means setting up camp in an uncharted area-letting go of your plan and making your way on resourcefulness, wits, and emotional resolve. Which is exactly what Sylvia and Clinton Vaeth do to cope with the tragedy of losing their only daughter at the hands of her husband. The Vaeths give up the comforts of suburban retirement and criss-cross the United States with their baby granddaughter, Rita, in tow. They start a new life along America's backroads, at once assuaging their own grief, as well as trying to protect Rita from knowing the truth about her father. But no matter how far they travel, his presence is never that far behind. Through the peaks and valleys of the American landscape, this family must come to terms with itself, and its own redemption. Through evocative yet accessible prose, Tricia Bauer's debut novel will surprise with its fresh insight.
