It is 1933. As a beat-up truck travels down a road away from Arkansas, seven-year-old Molly May Dowden can only hope a better future awaits her parents in Thistleway, Oklahoma. They have no idea what is about to come. With their money safely tucked away in a mattress, the Dowdens feel hopeful as they pass through Oklahoma City. But their hopes for an improved life disintegrate a hundred miles further west when a dust storm swirls dangerously around their truck. Forced to take shelter inside a dingy cafe with a band of quirky strangers, the Dowdens soon realize that life in Oklahoma may not be as easy as they had hoped.

Really enjoyed this book. Truly an eye-opener as to what it was like back in the 1930's, traveling through Arkansas and Oklahoma, and experiencing extreme dust storms. Had no idea of all of the ramifications. Very well written, too!
