you ever wanted to run away from your life? Has the
open road ever tickled your sense of adventure? Meet
four women who abandon their lives and take to the highways.
In Road Queens, four unforgettable
women meet on the highways of life. Diana, Mary Anne,
Suzy, and Lily are running away from their pasts and
struggling to pick up the pieces of their crumbling
lives. This novel is a vivid portrait of four very different
women and the friendship that forms.
The women decide to call
themselves the Road Queens because they are united by
their past, honesty, understanding and acceptance. Their
friendship deepens as they travel, and the women share
the reasons they are on the road. Road Queens illuminates
the emotional links that join women while husbands,
children, lovers, and careers come and go. The women
discover that nothing lasts like true friendship.
From the coast of
California to the beaches of Mexico, Road Queens is
a multi-layered story inspired by the authorís conversations
with women who currently live on the road.
Reviews: Faced with
phobias, broken relationships and a yen for adventure,
four middle-age-plus women take to the Highway of Life
in Catherine MacDonald's Road Queens. As their paths
cross and they join forces, this delightfully amusing
novel gives new meaning to "I'm on the road again."
My only wish with this book is that somewhere down the
road there will be more fun as these ladies once again
