Six-foot redhead Eudora "Pea" O'Brien, convenience store professional, sets off from Austin with everything she owns in a beat-up car, searching, on the advice of a psychic, for the reincarnated soul of the sister who raised her. When Sister was alive was the last time Pea felt safe and whole, and now she yearns for family and a place to call home. She travels the back roads of Texas, alert for signs to lead her to Sister while passing the time reading roadside historical markers. Along the way, she rescues a starving kitten and a pregnant school teacher, takes in a con man trying to go straight, and meets a gun dealer named Glory who introduces Pea to sword wielding goddesses. Glory and her nemesis, Lorena, a grandmotherly café owner, and the "goddesses" become Pea's unlikely gurus as she seeks to master both swordplay and the art of perfect fried okra on her way to finding both her own strengths and her place in the world.--From back book jacket.
