  • Travel with the Aunts

    Have you noticed that when women reach a certain age, they no longer care what people think of what they say or do? Allison’s three great-aunts have reached that age.

    Having been told by her father how awful her great-aunts are, Allison is shocked when she is asked to chauffer her three intelligent, wild family members on a road trip. Throughout their journey, Allison learns the life story of each: their versions of why they are who they are now-not who her father told her they were. In so doing, Allison gains insight into her own life and family.

    Travel with the Aunts is an on-the-road, rollicking novel filled with intrigues and adventures, personal discoveries and shared heartaches, shockingly funny incidents, and descriptions of a profoundly beautiful country: America. Mostly, it’s a story about coming home to the truth about yourself, and being fine with it.
