Picking up the characters from his GroVant trilogy, published 15 years ago, Sandlin returns to the small Wyoming town where it all began. Narrator Sam Callahan is managing the Virgin Birth Home for Unwed Mothers, while his aimless adult daughter, Shannon, is having a nervous breakdown; and his mother, Lydia, is on parole after time served for attempting to poison Ronald Reagan's dog. Lydia's parole requires writing the life story of centenarian, Oly Pedersen, but then she hatches a scheme for a road trip to California (taking along Oly) so Roger, a young man unofficially adopted by Sam, might discover his origins. Meanwhile, the terrifying Leroy, who dumped Roger off on friends years ago, is hunting him now, believing Roger must die for the universe to achieve balance.
