The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles

The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles


The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles presents a moving portrait of life told with unflinching honesty about marriage, motherhood and mourning. New York Times bestselling author Valerie Frankel calls it “a brave, put-your-heart-back-together-again book.”

Suddenly widowed and with two young daughters, author and journalist Laura Fahrenthold recounts her courageous and healing journey across the United States and Canada as she seeks answers to her loss and comfort in her grief.

Laura knew that to cope with her painful loss, she needed to do it on her own terms. She bought an RV, took her kids and their dog, and drove across the United States and Canada in search of healing and understanding. “A brutally honest, fast-moving and ultimately transcendent book about love’s life after death,” says Washington Post report and 2017 Pulitzer Prize winner David Fahrenthold.

A career in journalism fills The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles with insight and wit as Laura shares her adventures and misadventures, her deeply-layered love story, and her hilarious slice of life dispatches during her 30,152-mile road trip or as Barbara Barker from Newsday says her “road story of love and healing.”
