***I really enjoyed this book, which was the chosen book for our Book Club discussion this month. It was funny yet heartbreaking. It made me get up and go hug my children a few times. -Goodreads review
What a quirky, nonsensical, gorgeous, joyful, sad bit of inspiration! And if you can't understand that, then you're in the best position to read this fun novel! -Glenda A. Bixler, Amazon VINE Voice
A delightful book. Four strong women on a wonderful road trip having fun and discovering themselves and dealing with relationships. - Amazon review
I've always loved road trip books, such as On the Road by Jack Kerouac and Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck. I've always loved to travel. Then in 2007, my girlfriend and I hatched the idea of taking a trip down Route 66 all the way from Chicago to L.A. Our daughters, both in their twenties, asked to join us. Off we went on our adventure. The trip was a blast and everything we did seemed to be infused with meaning and serendipity. Of course, I kept a journal about the places we visited, and when I came home I began working on the novel. Even though there are four women (mothers and daughters) who travel together in Live from the Road and the setting is real, the rest is my imagination about what could have happened interspersed with a few sparks from the real trip. I took reality and blew it up as big as the fiberglass giants we saw on the road. I enjoyed writing the book almost as much as taking the trip because Route 66 is a road that writes itself.See all Editorial Reviews

I found the characters unrelatable and annoying and the story itself disappointing and unrealistic. I've enjoyed multiple cross-country road trips myself and am glad not to have... Read morePublished 15 months ago by Amazon Customer
Not a quick read. I found myself comparing my own journey through life with the characters. Everyone deals differently with adversity. And we all have our own crosses to bear. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Evelyn Borny
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the book ventured too far into the unbelievable. If it had been slightly more believable a roadtrip may have gone onto my agenda.Published 22 months ago by Diana Vance
