Soul Rider Facing Fear and Finding Redemption on a Harley By Carolyn Fox
This is the story of a woman who went on an incredible journey. Carolyn Fox was a single mother and lawyer haunted with grief and secrets, and facing her fiftieth birthday. So she decided to change her life by facing her fears: she bought a Harley, packed it with a sleeping bag and tent, and set out to ride through all fifty states—alone! Soul Rider is her gripping travel/journey memoir, written by a successful woman who realized she would have to make significant changes in the way she lived and thought, if she ever had a chance to find peace and wholeness. Soul Rider will inspire readers to:

Believe they can improve the quality of their lives by stepping outside their comfort zones
Find the courage to ask for forgiveness – first by forgiving others, and then by forgiving themselves
Recognize that loneliness can be overcome, simply by being the first to say Hello
Learn that it’s okay to admit failures, fears, and guilt. Stuff happens to everyone. Confront those things and discover how quickly personal empowerment flows.

Along the way, Carolyn traveled alone but met colorful characters, received positive media attention, discovered who she was, and put more than 14,000 miles on her bike. She kept a journal of her adventures, and the result is Soul Rider .
