Raves and Reviews

"Much more than a motorcycle diary. It is about overcoming loss and reinventing oneself." --Library Journal

"A recent widow at 57, executive consultant Crill impulsively decides to bust out of her cocoon ... and take a 10-day, 2,500-mile motorcycle trip with three others. The only problem is, she's never ridden a bike before. Her descriptions of the trip are enthusiastic, picturesque, heartfelt.... The advice, encouragement and positive outlooks she proffers will be of much help to those traveling a similar path in life, with a motorcycle or not, by 'accepting life's twists and turns, constantly changing routes, and the uncertainty of blind curves.'" -- Booklist

"The prototype for how a woman of a certain age can break from tradition and turn boredom into bliss, security into sizzle and frustration into triumphant joy." -- Andrea Roane, News Anchor CBS WUSA9

"A must-read for baby boomers hungry to change the direction of the second half of their lives." --Long Rider Magazine

"Crill's inspirational story demonstrates that the best kind of happiness in life can come from surprising places if you simply open your eyes and more importantly open your heart to adventure. Blind Curves encourages readers to step out of their comfort zones and take life by the throttle. Instead of wondering 'What Now?' during difficult times in our lives, perhaps, we can take inspiration from Linda Crill and instead ask ourselves, 'Where Now?" -- Sharnelle Kam, Inside Motorcycles
