Elvis Takes a Back Seat, by award-winning novelist Leanna
Ellis, is the endearing story of Claudia, a young widow determined to
fulfill her husband’s last request by hauling a three-foot bust of Elvis
Presley in the backseat of a vintage Cadillac from Dallas to Memphis to
return it to its rightful owner. The road trip—taken with an eccentric
aunt who actually knew the “King of Rock ’n’ Roll,” and a temperamental
teen with a suspicious mind of her own—hits some royal roadblocks and
detours as these women uncover pieces of their past along with the
bust’s mysterious history. What they find along the way changes their
lives forever, inspiring readers to also step out in faith.

Ellis takes a back seat to no one, so put on your blue suede shoes and
