Field Notes on Love

 by Jennifer E. Smith

It’s the perfect idea for a romantic week together;  traveling across America by train.  But then Hugo’s girlfriend dumps him.  Her parting gift: the tickets for their long-planned trip.  Only, it’s been booked under her name.  Nontransferable, no exceptions.  Mae is still reeling from being rejected from USC’s film school.  When she stumbles across Hugo’s ad for a replacement, she’s certain it’s exactly the adventure she needs to shake off her disappointment and jump-start her next film.  A cross-country train trip with a complete stranger might not seem like the best idea.  But to Mae and Hugo, both eager to excape their regular lives, it makes perfect sense.  What starts as a convenient arrangement soon turns into something more.  But when life outside the train catches up to them, can they find a way to keep their feelings for each other from getting derailed?
