By Michael Parker

Strangers meet over the hood of a used automobile in Texas: Marcus, who's fleeing either his monetary and private mess ups; and Maria, who after years of dodging her error has back to her place of origin to make amends. One having a look ahead, the opposite in retrospect, they face off over the auto they either wish and imagine they wish: a low-slung sky-blue 1984 Buick Electra.

The motor vehicle, too, has noticeable its proportion of mess ups. every one dent and ripped seam represents a pivotal second within the lives of others: from the boy who assembled it at an Indiana plant to all its resulting owners—a God-fearing guy who sells it whilst he sees a beautiful woman sprawled throughout its hood, a physician who can't dissociate it from his son's destiny, and a rancher's spouse who'd a lot fairly stay with out it for the entire heritage it carries.

After understanding one another for under an hour, Marcus and Maria choose to purchase the Buick jointly. As this superb novel follows the rocky paths of the Electra and its owners—both earlier and present—these strangers shape an unforeseen and finally resilient alliance.

All i've got during this World is a special form of love tale in regards to the strength of friendship and the methods we needs to discover ways to forgive ourselves if we're ever to maneuver on.
