Just as Jeremiah Goodbye is set to meet his fate in the electric chair, a tornado tears down the prison walls, and he is given a second chance at life. With the flip of a coin, he decides to return to his home town of Nowhere, Oklahoma, to settle the score with his twin brother Josiah. But upon his escape, he enters a world he doesn't recognize--one that has been overtaken by the Dust Bowl. And the gift he once relied on to guide him is as unrecognizable as the path back to Nowhere. After one jolt in Old Sparky, Jeremiah sees things more clearly and begins to question the mysterious circumstances surrounding the murders he was accused of.
"I opened this book and stepped into the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. It was real and factual. It also was fantasy. It showed the worst of people and the best. Most of all, it was amazing, and I could not put it down. Take a chance and find out what happened to Jeremiah Goodbye who was in the electric chair, ready to be fried for four murders that he did not commit. A tornado came by and freed him from his impending doom, and where he went and the lives he touched will touch your heart. "
