Burnin' Love by Sharon Bajer
15 year old Mary is comatose due to a near fatal car accident. Tina, her mother, is her palliative care nurse. On the eve of Mary's 16th birthday Tina decides to find Mary's father so he can meet her for the first time...before she takes her off life support. Wade is an Elvis impersonator in a seedy prairie bar. When Tina shows up in disguise one night in a blizzard, he is moved by the story of her daughter but has no idea he is talking to his ex girlfriend and that Mary is his daughter. He offers to drive Tina to the hospital but on the way they get into a terrible car accident. Wade meets Mary up in Limbo and with the help of the "real" Elvis they must try to get through to Tina to keep them alive. Hilarious and tragic with Elvis songs throughout, Burnin' Love is about a family torn apart and pieced back together again from the fires of hell to the sequins of Graceland.
