Everyone has dreams, but few people give their all for them. Heidi Eliason sold her house, quit her job, and set aside her financial stability to allow herself to live her own dream. She bought a motorhome and with Rylie, her dog, she began her journey. In Confessions of a Middle-Aged Runaway, Heidi tells us about her travels and how she was changing her lifestyle. She uses notes collected during her travels to narrate the experience that lasted almost five years. Heidi traveled through sites like New Mexico and California and visited breathtaking places like the Grand Canyon. She also met many interesting people and fearlessly tells us about her loves and disappointments. This story goes beyond overcoming the feelings of traveling alone. It shows us that it is never too late to make a change in life. It is always possible to change direction because we have a world of opportunities to discover.
Heidi Eliason's narration is one of the aspects I liked the most. She knows how to keep you interested at all times. In a very natural way, she describes her emotions and insecurities during her journey. But she also shows us pleasant experiences and the friendships she made on her travels. She gives us the context of her life before she decided to have a motorhome. We also understand her motivations for seeking change in her life. Confessions of a Middle-Aged Runaway is about true stories with unexpected moments, and it feels like living an adventure. It also expresses the happiness of being free but don't forget the complications of being alone or in new situations. It is an entertaining and appropriate read to find the motivation to make a change in our lives.
