world of RVing is a unique and fascinating world of
its own. There is a segment of the population that gives
up permanent roots, buys a traveling home and hits the
roads. The Road Queen is the story of four women who
do just that.
Diana is a recent widow traveling in
the large fancy RV her husband had bought just before
he died. She meets Mary Ann, the Las Vegas waitress
who is driving "The Love Machine," an older
RV her husband gave her after she found him in bed with
another woman. The third woman of The Road Queens is
Suzy who is running away from her past. Later in the
book the fourth woman of the group joins them. Lily
is not sure she ever wants to return to her couch potato
of a husband.
The Road Queens chronicles the women's
journey, a journey not only from place to place but
one of personal growth and development. Each woman has
her own secret and private demons that haunt her from
the past that each must put to rest to be able to succeed
in the future. As the four very different women become

Author Catherine MacDonald is also
known as the RV Lady, the host of a TV and radio talk
show about the RV lifestyle. A former teacher, she and
her husband now own an RV sales, parts and service center.
She is able to vividly introduce the reader into the
everyday life of the people who travel from place to
place in their own homes. By the end of the book the
reader is likely to want to put a for sale sign on his

More 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
