A John Marshall Tanner NovelBook - 1999
"John Marshall Tanner is a reluctant survivor. Some days, as he lies in a hospital bed struggling to recuperate from a near-fatal gunshot wound, he figures life is hardly worth living." "One of the few people who can bring him out of his depression is young Rita Lombardi, in the hospital for surgery on a disfiguring birthmark and clubfeet. Rita and Tanner walk the halls together, pulling their IVs behind them, discussing the big and small issues of life: Rita's love for her friend Carlos and her passion for her special corner of the world - the strawberry fields of California's Salinas Valley." "Rita never gets to welcome Tanner to her town of Haciendas. When Tanner recovers enough to call Rita, he receives some devastating news. Rita is dead, murdered by an unknown assailant."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
