Have you ever wanted to get in your car, drive away, and leave everything behind? When a sudden tragedy changes the life of strong, dependable, Laurel Tanner, she does just that, traveling across the Trans-Canada Highway. She tells no one that she's leaving or where she's going. In fact, she's not entirely sure herself why she's doing it. Her bewildered husband Douglas, and her twin brother, Lin, set out on a journey to find her and hopefully bring her home. Told with both sorrow and humor through the eyes of seven different characters, this novel examines perceptions and relationships, and finds that often what we believe about ourselves, or another, may not be the the truth after all.
