Summary

"Phillipa "Snip" Freeman has trouble putting down roots. She is an artist and a wanderer; tough and in control of her world. That is until an envelope arrives, mailed by her grandmother before her death. In it, a check for $30,000 and one simple instruction: hunt him down. With the money Snip buys a utility vehicle, takes on a traveling companion, and sets off to find her father somewhere in the vast outback. Along the way we are introduced to the real Snip Freeman - a child once witness to her parents' violent breakup; a girl who learned never to trust men so she used them instead; and a woman who finds that this time there is nowhere to run."--BOOK JACKET. "Alice Springs is a story about the pitfalls of love and the power of forgiveness - a story fueled by the rush of venturing head first into the unknown."--BOOK JACKET.
