When Bloomberg journalist Mark Pittman suddenly died, his widow spent four summers driving 31,152 miles searching for answers.
In her fearless memoir, The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles: A Love Story, author Laura Fahrenthold presents a moving portrait of marriage, motherhood and mourning as she captains a 1993 RV sprinkling her husband's ashes with their two young daughters and a stray dog in an epic quest for healing and understanding. Filled with insight and wit from a career in journalism, the story captures the family's adventures and misadventures, her deeply-layered love story, and her hilarious slice-of-life dispatches where the pink steering wheel becomes her spiritual GPS.

I know the author. I spoke with her the day after her husband died. When I starting reading The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles: A Love Story, I cried a deep, cathartic ugly cry and simply could not stop reading. Laura carries the reader through an intimate journey of life’s biggest moments. The moment you meet the person who grabs your soul in an instant, the moment twi become three and three become four. And then the Moment when two becomes one again through heart wrenching loss and four goes back to three. The tale that follows is about a final family trip covering 3100 miles and the healing that ensues. Read this book. It’s just simply beautiful.
