This book is told in the first person, for the most part, with Maggie being the story teller. Maggie is a strong willed, strong drinking, independent (or so she thinks) woman with two kids. She and her two best friends take off on a road trip to get an autograph from their favorite country singer, Patty Loveless. Why? Because Maggie is dying. Maggie thinks she is dying, Jackie and Caroline think Maggie is dying and because of that they want to get one more concert trip under their belts while they have the chance. Maggie has Patty's first LP that she wants autographed.
Three concerts in five days, that's the plan. And that is the premise of the whole book. Three women on the road.
