Editor reviews

Wendy Laird is the author and narrator of The Road Less Graveled, a short two-and-a-half-hour account of Laird's decision to move her family from Seattle to Tuscany for a year. The account is full of color, texture, and detail, making the story all the more vivid. The listener will be captivated by Laird's bittersweet descriptions of what it means to leave home and what it means to come back. The audiobook will charm listeners and will make them reconsider their everyday priorities. Laird's risk-taking speaks to a new generation of American expats.

Summary

The Road Less Graveled is the account of a family that escapes a collapsing economy and the overscheduled American lifestyle, at least temporarily, by following their dreams to Italy. Part Tuscan idyll and part cautionary tale, Wendy Laird’s latest Kindle Single tells the flip-side story of expat existence, what it takes to make it happen, and how a life on a well-mapped trajectory can veer off course in the process. Laird’s beautiful prose and acerbic wit keep the book, if not her own agenda, on the right track.
