The 5th Book in the Jake Winters Series
This next book in the Jake Winters series opens in a small ghost town in the West, June 30, 2002. Jake Winters and Peter Stevenson have now been together for one year traveling the roads of the country in Jake's big truck. They are the most unlikely pair you would ever hope to meet. Jake is a burned-out schoolteacher who wants nothing to do with children anymore. He is a fiercely independent solo, cross-country truck driver with no cares or responsibilities outside of his job.
Peter is a six-year-old boy. Jake was appointed by God to provide Peter with the childhood he never had. Sometimes it appears God doesn't know what he's doing…but he always does.
Peter's father murdered him, June 30, 1901. (Peter is a ghost…or is he?) His funeral in 1901 was a sham, so Jake and some friends decided to have a Christian funeral for Peter, one hundred one years after his first one.
As Jake's big wheels kept rolling through 2001, a strong bond formed between Jake and Peter, cemented by love. But as time for his funeral drew near, Peter and Jake worried about what would become of Peter: Would he return to the grave, or would he be allowed to remain with Jake? And why did his mother make her presence known after one hundred-six years? Was Jake about to become the lone wanderer again?
