"This is an absolutely spellbinding read...I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this!"
--Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, Author, When Elephants Weep and The Assault On Truth
After raising her “4+2+1” brood—four kids, two stepkids and one unofficially adopted Ethiopian daughter— Diana Bletter faced an empty nest. What would she do now? And more importantly, who was she now?
With nothing left to call her own, she decided to ride a motorcycle (with her husband on his motorcycle) from Long Island up to Alaska and back again. Only one slight problem: she’d never been on a motorcycle before.
With six motorcycle lessons’ worth of experience, she took off, traveling across a continent, and then up the Alaska Highway, a road that is “sometimes dangerous, often unpredictable, and always saddled with the solitude of a frontier trail.” She and her husband, alone together for the first time in years, confront fierce winds, drenching rains, grizzly bears, moose—and each other. Full of spiritual insights, observations and humor, The Mom Who Took Off on Her Motorcycle captures the way two people, madly in love and yet so different, learn to count on each other and rediscover their passion—despite an accident that almost tears them apart. This story of a 10,000-mile journey to the Great White North is the inspiring tale of how one woman takes off to discover who she was before she had children and to find out who she could still become.

HASH(0x9ee509b4) von 5 Sternen For married Jewish women with children. 27. August 2014
Von TP - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book was not my cup of tea, but if you are a Jewish female, married, not uncomfortable with someone in a second marriage, and have children, I think you will probably relate to and enjoy this book. For me, I was looking more for a motorcycle adventure. Instead, this is really a memoir of this woman's life, her first marriage, how she met her second husband and dated him while they were both still married, integrating the children, etc. I think if her husband had stayed home she would have had better material for a motorcycle adventure.
If you are looking to read a great motorcycle adventure involving a woman, check out Karen Larsen's book "Breaking the Limit: One Woman's Motorcycle Journey Through North America". If it's a guy's adventure you are looking to read - there are many good reads - in particular "Jupiter's Travels..." by Ted Simons is great, as is "Ride On..." by Joseph Fehlen (Christian-based), and "The Old Man and the Harley" by John Newkirk.

HASH(0x9ee355f4) von 5 Sternen A Journey of Self-Discovery 28. Mai 2013
Von John Chancellor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The ancient philosopher Seneca once said, "It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult."
Seneca had a very good understanding of what makes life difficult for most people - our inability to step out of our comfort zones and embark on a journey of discovery to find who we are, why we are here and what is truly important to us.

Diana Bletter has written a wonderful memoir of her journey of self-discovery in the book titled - The Mom Who Took Off on Her Motorcycle. Diana is certainly not your ordinary soccer mom. She had lived a very full and adventerous life prior to embarking on a 10,000 plus mile journey on a motorcycle ride from New York to Alaska and back. This was her maiden voyage on a motorcycle. She had a very few brief lessons prior to undertaking such a long and challenging trip. Her husband was her only riding companion.

The primary story is about the trip with all the beauty and all the challenges - it is seems like there were more challenges than beauty. But scattered throughout the story, Diana fills us in on her own life story. She tells us how she grew up in New York and later moved to Israel. She shares the story of meeting and falling in love with her second husband - Jonny. Like most people she spends some time each day thinking of the past, speculating about the future and wondering why she is here.

For Diana, the purpose of the trip is one of discovery. Not of Canada or Alaska but one of looking deep into her soul - searching for the meaning of life. She is constantly plagued with fear. This would be an extremely challenging ride for an experienced biker. It is even more so for a novice biker. She and Jonny seem to have a very loving relationship but he is at times curt and then over-protective. There is definitely a contrast between the personalities. Jonny is always focused on the destination while Diana is focused on the journey.

You will be treated to lots of history as you make the trip with Diana and Jonny. She scatters the story with lots of tidbits of information. There are also very graphic descriptions of the interesting people and colorful places they encounter along the way.

There is one overriding lesson - you only find life by facing your fears. Going on a two month, 10,000 mile trip on a motorcycle might not be the journey of self-discovery that is right for you. But if you want to unravel the mystery of life, you need to take the challenge, "dare to do the difficult". It will teach you a lot about who you are, why you are here and what you are meant to do.

This is a very quick read. You will be pulling for Diana on each leg of the journey. You will feel some real discomfort that she is feeling - you will feel her fears and in the end you will be happy for her, rejoicing that she made it back safe and a much better person than when she started.

A great read. Don't just read the book and think that you could never do that. Life is short. You only get one chance. Follow Seneca's advice and Diana's example "dare to do the difficult".

I was provided a review copy of this book.

HASH(0x9ee35e88) von 5 Sternen The Mom Who Took Off On Her Motorcycle 23. März 2013
Von Sharon Mann - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"The Mom Who Took Off On Her Motorcycle, " vividly describes the ups and downs of Diana Bletter's emotional and physical 10,000 mile journey on the road to Alaska with her husband. Diana portrays the mental and physical challenges she faced with honesty, wit and humor. A good read for everyone, with special appeal for anyone who enjoys reminiscing about, is in the middle of or contemplating a turning point in his/her life. I was captivated by Diana's account of the history and scenery along the way as well as her personal revelations on this trip of self discovery. I thoroughly enjoyed taking this road trip, mile by mile, 'vicariously' through Diana's book.

HASH(0x9ed06d98) von 5 Sternen Compelling and delightful! 6. Januar 2014
Von babyboomerz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book was an absolute delight. It made me laugh aloud at times and at other times wonder at the author's ability to persevere and even enjoy her amazing journey. The author conveyed her thoughts and feelings vividly so I felt as if I was riding along with her. It made me think deeply about my own life choices, my connection with my husband and children and my future goals. I loved the way the author weaved in letters and reminiscences as she reviewed her important relationships. I felt like I knew the author and liked her strengths and vulnerabilities and her wonderful ability to express her thoughts and feelings. Lastly, I owe her a debt of gratitude for saving me from my own fantasy of getting a motorcycle and exploring the world. I highly recommend this excellent book about a woman coming to terms with her "empty nest" and all that she has to look forward to.
