Lone Star


From the author of Tully and The Bronze Horseman comes an epic new romantic saga – heart-wrenching and passionate, this compelling story of love lost and found will stay with you forever … The unforgettable love story between a college-bound girl from Maine and a traveling troubadour on his way to war.

Chloe is weeks away from starting a new life far away from home when she embarks on a great European adventure with her boyfriend and two best friends. Their destination is Barcelona, but first they must detour through the historic cities of Eastern Europe to keep an old family promise. Buried in the treasures of the fledgling post-Communist world, Chloe finds a charming American vagabond named Johnny Rainbow, who carries a guitar, an easy smile – and a lifetime of secrets. As the unlikely band traverses the old world, a train trip becomes a treacherous journey into Europe’s and Johnny’s darkest past – a journey that shatters Chloe’s future plans and puts in jeopardy everything she thought she wanted.

As they travel the marshes and mountains of the European continent, Chloe and her friends discover only one thing that’s certain: whether or not they reach Barcelona, their lives will never be the same.
