Queenie grew up in a small Texas town and couldn't wait to get out. She left for life in the big city as soon as she was able. Anywhere sounded better than living in a town where it seemed no one would ever forgive her and her family 's past.
Ten years later, after being fired from her job as a chef and with no other options, Queenie returns home. She finds herself still unaccepted by the town, and still in love with Everett, her high school flame. She learns to put the past where it belongs, in the past, so she can live the life she wants and deserves.
Nowhere but Home is full of quirky, engaging characters. This is one of those stories that is funny and moving and satisfying. It is perfect for a rainy day or a day at the beach.
