Alison's Automotive Repair Manual: A Novel
Publisher: Random House (Audio)
Date: November 2002
Duration: 9 hours 13 minutes
A widow in her mid thirties, Alison has been in mourning for two years. She lives with her sister and brother-in-law in West Virginia, and they are urging her to get on with her life and move back home. Alison promises to leave--just as soon as she renovates a nearly-ruined 1976 Corvette rusting in their garage. Problem is, she doesn't know the first thing about cars, and the fact that the townspeople (with the exception of a cute demolition man) are bewildered by a woman messing with automotive parts does not help.
