In 1977, a young woman steals a duffel bag full of drug money and flees her bad-news boyfriend, hitching a ride with a long-haul trucker to the world��s edge. She intends to disappear forever, to redefine herself on her own terms as Dawn Taylor.
But eventually, stars and satellites align. In a remote roadside motel, Dawn��s past catches up with her.
As a ferocious storm blows in, Vryenhoek vividly captures the desires of a host of characters whose paths have converged in this strange place. Ethan struggles to escape a tired narrative of childhood trauma. Cheryl is desperate to resuscitate a reputation blown apart on social media. And Spencer, an ex-con seeking to overcome his criminal past, chases a faint hope he��s glimpsed on a website built half a continent away. When the highway closes and the power fails, there��s nothing to keep them from disclosing who they really are.
