One teen, one cranky old man and the open road. What could go wrong?

Eighteen-year old Wil Carter can think of more than a fistful of things he’d rather do than go on a road trip with his ninety-five year old grandfather. But when Gramps Wilf barks an order, you listen or get an earful of grief.

Wil lost his parents in a horrible car accident when he was five. Gramps has been the only parent he has ever known. Now that he’s ready to go off to college, the old man says he has things Wil needs to learn to be the man he’s supposed to be. But the trip turns out to be more than he bargains for.

Along their week-long road trip across the Canadian Prairies, Wil not only learns tidbits about his own life, but realizes the grandfather he thought he knew has mysteries of his own. With each stop they make, a new layer of emotional truth is revealed…for each of them.

Will Gramps teach Wil what he needs to know before the journey ends? And is Wil strong enough to hear it?

Professional Reviews
crossing the gap
The generation gap is handled in a masterful way by a mature author who knows how to make the characters leap out of the page in depth and color. I enjoyed the plot unfolding as WWII veteran Gramps teaches his somewhat airhead grandson the values that earned the name "Greatest Generation." Those of us who lived through WWII may find an element of nostalgia as this unlikely couple relives their past in order to find the understanding of how some values never go out of style. A definite 5 stars, a most enjoyable read and I'm adding author Laird to my must read list. It is a page turner indeed.

The art of story telling is alive and well with Chynna Laird. Thumbs up!
