The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles answers the heartbreaking question no one wants to ask. How do you carry on after your soulmate dies?
I suppose no one really knows how they’ll respond to a loved one’s death until it happens. If author Laura Fahrenthold’s experience is an indication, the process of grief isn’t linear.
Over a four year period, Fahrenthold takes readers on a cross-country journey of escape, self-discovery and letting go. It documents a family wrestling with losing their patriarch and continue living, despite having no idea what to do next.
For this family, an impromptu RV purchase becomes their salvation. It helped them deal with their loss in their own way. Their various summer road trips take them around North America, into the great outdoors and include many encounters with interesting people. Their experiences range from gut-wrenching sorrow to hilarious awkwardness and everything in between.
…the most effective tragedies are punctuated by moments of comic relief, giving people a chance to recuperate emotionally before the next painful blow hits.
Released June 26, 2018, The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles is available at Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, Indigo, Walmart and more.

Filled with insight and wit from a career in journalism, the story captures the family’s adventures and misadventures, her deeply-layered love story, and her hilarious slice-of-life dispatches where the pink steering wheel becomes her spiritual GPS.
