Determined to end her life, she boards a bus for San Francisco to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. The bus breaks down and she meets two unsual and incredible men who become her best friends (and one her husband). They travel the Midwest, playing guitar and singing - this white man and black man - with Violet as the manager of the Pearltones, America's newest favorite singers in the late 1930's.

Violet, Austin and Kjel are friends, companions, business partners and roadies in this heart-warming novel of disability, charm, talent, racial prejudice and small-town loyalty.
