Since she was a young child, the beautiful Laura Halsey has wanted two things in life: to raise a family and to drive a truck like her father. Her father insists, “Women don’t drive trucks,” but she’s determined to prove him wrong — until he dies in a terrible accident when she’s only a teenager. A week after her divorce is finalized, Laura, now 43, leaves her office job and enlists her brother Mark to help her fulfill her dream of becoming a truck driver. Facing harassment, demanding customers, a grueling schedule, careless drivers, and her own fears, Laura struggles to succeed in an industry vastly different from the one her father knew. But driving isn’t without its rewards — including the chance of finding love again in the form of fellow driver Bill Johnson, a smart, handsome widower. Both are drawn into a relationship involving a common problem: loving someone who can be miles away for long periods of time in a high-risk job.
