Blind Curves: One Woman’s Unusual Search to Reinvent Herself and Answer: “What Now?

Funny, irreverent, and extraordinarily honest, this is the perfect read for people looking for ways to reinvent themselves, and anyone asking: “What now?”

Synopsis: After eighteen months of following one-size-fits-all advice for a 57-year-old widow, Linda Crill was still miserable. In a moment of rebellion, she traded her corporate suits for motorcycle leathers and committed herself to a 2,500-mile road trip on a Harley, without knowing how to ride.

Four short weeks later, Linda joined two men and another woman for a white-knuckled, exhilarating road trip along America’s Pacific Northwest coast from Vancouver, Canada, to the wine country of Mendocino, California. Along the way she encountered washed-out mountain roads, small town hospitality, humming redwoods, and acceptance from gentle souls who happened to have
tattoos and piercings.

Blind Curves is the extraordinary story of a woman who had tried everything to reinvent herself and recapture excitement for what comes next. Exercising, reading, making endless to-do lists, putting others’ needs first, and pampering herself was not working.

What did work? Blind Curves will share the path Linda took and how her experience of creating her own turn-by-turn route succeeded after traditional wisdom and practices had failed.
