Bestselling Irish author Michelle Jackson returns with a new name, Michelle Walsh Jackson and a fresh voice. After travel writing for the last eight years she has written a road trip book set in Oklahoma, Dublin and Oxford. This spiritual journey into America’s Heartland brings the reader on “A thought provoking Odyssey to fill the soul and grip the reader,” according to Niamh Greene, Irish Author.
This is the story of the fragile love between Roz Waters and her visually impaired father, Patrick, a love that is revived on an extraordinary road trip through Oklahoma in America’s heartland. The journey is an opportunity for Patrick to impart knowledge and wisdom that Roz is finally ready to hear.
Unexpectedly, Roz’s world is rocked when she meets an army officer, Michael Williams, along the way. But his wedding band isn’t the only obstacle that makes their love forbidden. The prairies pale in comparison to the touching journey into each other’s hearts.
As time unfolds Roz discovers that she and her father are intrinsically linked to Michael and together maybe they will all find the real Heartland.
