Overview

An out and back is a run that starts and ends at the same point. Along the way we are changed. In the end we are back where we started.

Amber runs every morning, bakes home cooked meals, and keeps a spotless house. She homeschools her children, grows an organic garden and milks her own goats. But Amber Stonewall is not perfect. She is a mother who fails, a wife who is unable to show affection, a daughter who is absent and a sister who knows it all. When her mom dies, it all slaps her in the face.

A diary-like glimpse into the thoughts of an obsessive running/fitness junky as she tries to deal with the death of her mother and other stressors life throws her way. Amber's daily jogs are the vehicle as she speaks to the reader much like writing a journal, with multiple flashbacks to her childhood in an attempt to grapple a family crisis back at her childhood home in Minnesota while her own personal dramas are unfolding at her small ranch in Kentucky.
