"The author has made an impact not only in his high tech field, but with his heart. Nobody does this! This act alone is proof this author is a genuine humanitarian, as well as a very entertaining writer unafraid to bare his guts for all to behold...Stories don't get more pithy and Zen than this one. Read the book; you'll see what we mean." -BMW Motorcycle Magazine, OTL
A broken mechanic packs his motorcycle and heads to Haiti to repair his own crumbling life.
My dearest little Maggie,
I'm sorry in ways you may never understand. Please know that I never wanted to leave you....
It wasn't the traditional birthday letter Greg had written his daughter four times before. But traditions, like everything else, had utterly unraveled.
Adrift in a workaday society he no longer recognizes, Greg is rattled in unexpected ways by the heartbreak in Haiti that clear January morning when he spots an unusual opportunity in the looped nightly news, something he can do - a small way he just might be able to help.
Facing divorce and an anesthetized hereafter, Greg shucks tradition and packs his motorcycle, headed to a shattered country to unexpectedly find the one thing he's abandoned.
