|About the Book|
Twelve-year-old Elijah Jonas has suddenly become a partner to his truck driver father Micah. After the death of his mother, Elijah stopped talking. Believing that he needed to be with his father, his grandparents gave him over to Micah, who lives in his semi truck. Now Elijah must learn how to live the lifestyle of an over-the-road truck driver. Finally he relaxes enough to speak, but only saying Bible verses. He and his father learn to translate the verses to meaning what they wish to say to each other. When his dad wants him to dress his feet, he says, How beautiful are thy feet with shoes. (Song of Solomon 7:1) The two receive many stares when they speak this way in public. Gradually both of them heal over the loss of their beloved wife and mother. And together they learn to know God better as they travel from one end of the country to the other, living in the truck, meeting new people every day.
