Who hasn't had the wild idea of putting her life on hold and hitting the wide open road with her best buddy in tow? And who hasn't wondered, "what's the worst that could happen if I did?" Patt Fero's hilarious book answers that question as she takes her readers on the ultimate middle-age escape fantasy with Liz and Leslie, two women who go for it and become faced with another interesting question: can you ever go home again....and even if you can, do you really want to?
Leslie, a highly intelligent, professional baby boomer seemed to have it all; good job, plenty of money, the perfect husband (although a bit "stale") loving son, beautiful home and new car. What more could a girl want?
Unhappy, stressed to the max, and unfulfilled, yet not knowing why, this diva's life is turned upside down when she gets the unthinkable--the proverbial pink slip. For Leslie, this was a wake-up call and a second chance to live her dream.
Before you can say baby boomer, Leslie calls her best friend and co-dreamer, Liz, and together they purchase an RV named, Silver Queen Screamer, leave notes at home saying"taking a vacation from life," and then set off on the most selfishly delightful, inspiring, and even sometimes dangerous adventures.
Liz and Leslie learn so much about life, themselves, and each other. They discover what's really important is sometimes staring you in the face if you take the time to love and appreciate what you have, and practice with a grateful heart.
Author Fero surely wrote [...] for every woman in the world who has ever dreamed of running away from it all. Go ahead; run away with Leslie and Liz and experience the adventures, and even discover new things about your own desires...all from the comfort of your own Silver Queen Screamer called home. I loved this book. It doesn't get any better than this!
These chicks learn that life happens when you're making other plans. Without missing a beat, Leslie and Liz hit the road in their "motor yacht" in search of adventure after life deals them a detour. Living the song, "Take This Job and Shove It", the two characters in Patt Fero's hilarious novel quickly learn the rules of the road. Sometimes funny and sometimes sad, each stop along their trek teaches life lessons for all of us riding shotgun. Jump onboard and enjoy this ride, you'll be sad when the journey is over but somehow I think we'll see these 2 again. I hope so.
