Velva Jean Learns to Drive
From the author of the New York Times bestselling All the Bright Places, a spellbinding debut about ill-fated love
Like Niven’s latest novel, All the Bright Places, hailed as a “charming love story about [an] unlikely and endearing pair” (New York Times Book Review), her debut Velva Jean Learns to Drive is a big-hearted story about the struggle to find happiness. Before she dies, Velva Jean's mother urges her to "live out there in the great wide world.” Growing up in Appalachia in the years before World War II, Velva Jean dreams of becoming a big-time singer in Nashville until she falls in love with Harley Bright, a handsome juvenile delinquent turned revival preacher. As their tumultuous love story unfolds, Velva Jean must choose between keeping her hard-won home and pursuing her dream of singing in the Grand Ole Opry.
