Meg Newton and Sally Sutton seek a change in the mundane routine of their lives. “Is this all there is?” Sally asks Meg after visiting a dying friend in the hospital. That’s when Meg suggests they take a journey to discover the answer. Joined by their daughters, they set off on a journey of salvation enhanced by the glories of the Mother Road. Along the way, they are joined by a Chicago bluesman, a Pakistani liquor store owner from Illinois, a Marine from Missouri, a gun-toting momma from Oklahoma, and a motel clerk from New Mexico. Meg, mourning for her dead son, learns to share her pain with her daughter CC. When Sally’s husband of almost thirty years leaves a voice mail telling her he’s leaving, both Sally and her daughter Ramona discover some truths about love and independence.
Live from the Road takes the reader on an often humorous, yet harrowing, journey. Death, divorce and deception help to reveal the inner journey taking place under the blazing desert sun as a Route 66 motel owner reads the Bhagavad-Gita and an eagle provides the sign they’ve all been seeking. Enlightenment comes tiptoeing in at dawn in a Tucumcari laundromat, while singing karaoke at a bar in Gallup, New Mexico, and during dinner at the Roadkill Café in Seligman, Arizona. The four women’s lives will never be the same after the road leads them to their hearts – the true destination for these road warriors.
Live from the Road: An Unforgettable Road Trip
Review by Kathleen Heady
Live from the Road is a road trip across the country on historic Route 66. But it is far more than a travelogue. Live from the Road is the story of two mothers and two daughters who set out on the adventure of a lifetime and learn that even if you are following a highway, life is more than capable of throwing in some unexpected curves.
Along the way, Meg and Sally and their daughters accumulate new-found friends who are ready to drop everything to be part of this great adventure. At the same time, they are leaving behind old fears and hang-ups, and letting go of old relationships. They pack so much life into their road trip, even as they deal with death, illness, and abandonment, and find themselves through their own intuition and love for each other, and the help of a few cowboys and an old woman who seems to appear from nowhere, but at just the right time.
Live from the Road will make you laugh and cry, and wish the journey didn’t have to end. But it does, just like Route 66, in Santa Monica at the Pacific Ocean.
P.C. Zick has written an unforgettable novel that reads like real life. Her writing has the ability to touch the heart as well as entertain.
