“I couldn’t put it down,” Amazon Reader

After they arrived home from their 10,000 mile road trip, Susan’s mailbox was full of requests. Please keep going, keep writing, keep sharing…

So Susan kept writing the friendly, open posts about living and care-giving in their small Florida community. The readers would open their mailbox periodically throughout the day anxious to dive into another update that would have them laughing, or crying or just shaking their heads in wonder.

Now you too can be join them on their journey with disability as Susan and George keep riding their recumbent trikes and adapting to change. 

Susan made learning about the struggles one has caring for their loved one with Alzheimer’s enjoyable.

I came to admire her sense of humor, deep compassion, sense of gratitude for friends and helpers, and tenacious spirit

“A courageous journey with many twist and turns as two people grasp the challenges of Alzheimer’s" Amazon Reader

"This is a true story of two people taking a cross country trip to celebrate 40 years of marriage with an unwelcome guest known as Alzheimer’s. The writer shares their story in a most candid way. Not only does she share the geographical trip but the many nuances of the disease and how it impacts the mundane and extraordinary events of each day. A brave journey that one will benefit from reading.”  Beth R.


After having a book published I have come to realize the importance of leaving an honest written review on Amazon, Bookbub, and Goodreads.  If I really like a book I might recommend it on Facebook or Twitter or elsewhere.  Just one or two sentences is all it takes to help others find the book and decide to read it.  Your review is greatly appreciated.  If you do post a recommendation on your social media, be sure to tag me, Susan Straley.  THANK YOU!!!
