- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
At forty, Candiya thought her life was finally falling into place. Mike - her boyfriend, best friend, love of her life - was returning from the final deployment of his career. Now they could start their life together. They had made it through the stress of repeated deployments, and this was the sweet reward on the other side. The morning after his return, she got the call. Mike had been in a motorcycle accident, and "he didn't make it."
ON GRIEF, HOPE, AND MOTORCYCLES is a collection of Candiya's blog posts and ride reports, a diary that follows her journey from despair to healing, including the painful, funny, and absurd stories along the way. Raw, powerful, and beautiful, this book is an offering of hope to any reader who has experienced or will experience loss: that is to say, everyone.
