Ever stop at a construction zone and wonder who are these people? And who are those other drivers on the highway around you? This book of short stories focuses on the lives and conflicts of a diverse group. The reader is introduced immediately to Shrink Lady, an elderly woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's. Other tales include the Sign Holder, the wannabe country singer, the devoted state patrolman, a homeless boy and his faithful dog, and a lottery addict, plus several other rich characters. These folks travel the highway between two rural towns,sometimes interacting with each, but often passing without a glance. Yet, their decisions often profoundly impact the lives of other travelers. Each story is connected in some manner to the next, but can be read as a separate and complete tale. However, the Shrink Lady's journey continues throuhout the book, finally concluding the collection.
