If none of the other resources has helped, it's probably worth it to spend the USD5 on a Metafilter account and post as much as you can remember as an Ask Metafilter question.

I know that Librarians were mentioned briefly in the original post, but as a reader and bookseller I rely heavily on our reference librarians, and also the librarians from specific foci such as children's books, religious, historical etc. If you live in a small town and do not have such specific sections in your libraries, a call to the central library in a major city such as New York, Los Angeles, Cleveland or Chicago will enable you to talk with librarians with years of experience in very specialized areas. I remember spending many an afternoon picking the brains of specialists in 19th century essays or religious biographies or other esoteric stuff when I was in school in Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

I'm looking for a book from the 80's (?). It was about a girl named Jodi who lived in a small town with her mother and stepfather and sleazy stepbrother (Mark?). She had a male friend named Bobby McGee(?). Her stepbrother got in a car accident with a drifter named Tay Brannon, who he blamed for the accident. Jodi and Tay eventually ran away together, he from the law, she from her home situation. Jodi had an elderly next door neighbour who lived alone in a very tidy house. The book is set during a very hot summer. If anyone can remember the author or title, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I read this book in 2005 and now I can't remember the title or author. It's about a man who somehow forgets who he is...I know it's partially set in Flagstaff, Arizona and maybe Sedona, Arizona. Anyways, he meets this woman who is known for weaving tapestries. They fall in love and have a child together. One say he takes the bus Flagstaff to pick up materials for something. He bumps his head and remembers who really is, but forgets who he was. He's really a doctor. She ends up selling him a tapestry for his office but doesn't realize who it is until somewhere towards the end.

If anyone can help me I would be so grateful!!
