Publisher's Summary

After months of following one-size-fits-all advice for a fifty-seven-year-old widow, Linda Crill is still miserable, until she makes a rebellious spur-of-the-moment decision: she trades her corporate suits for motorcycle leathers and commits herself to a 2,500-mile road trip down America’s Pacific Northwest coast on a Harley. The problemshe doesn’t know how to ride and has only thirty days to learn.Four short weeks later, Linda joins two men and a woman for a white-knuckled, exhilarating road trip along the west coast from Vancouver, Canada, to the wine country of Mendocino, California. Along the way she encounters washed-out mountain roads, small town hospitality, humming redwoods, and acceptance from gentle souls who happen to have tattoos and piercings.By heading into the unknownthe blind curveshe faces her fears, tests old beliefs, and discovers not only a broader horizon of possibilities to use in building the next phase of her life, but also the fuel to make it happen.Funny, irreverent, and extraordinarily honest, it’s the perfect read for people looking for ways to reinvent themselves, and anyone asking: "What now?"

Any additional comments?

This is a great book about overcoming your internal fears, obstacles, hang-ups and finding out who you are and what you are made of. Linda Crill did the unthinkable to most and took on a very brave task. To learn how to ride a motorcycle and then take off on a trip of thousands of miles as a novice is impressive. Doing all this while rediscovering herself and coming to peace with her life. Inspirational to say the least even for a veteran rider.
