Letting Love & Wanderlust Take the Reins
This conversational memoir, full of humor and sass but also heart, recounts the tales of an unexpected wanderer. Sarah Reijonen tells the story of how she survives her first year of marriage, only to turn her world upside down with seven months of globetrotting. She quits her job and sells her house and 80 acres to travel the world with her husband. While on the road, Reijonen learns to question success and love—with the help of a few cold ones and some much-needed soul searching. This introspection leads Reijonen to a new outlook on life and shows her what it means to be happy in her own boots.
I ease into the idea of letting go of control and simply let life take the reins. And when I don't hold it so tightly, it doesn't thrash against me so wildly. It calms to a trot and allows me to take in the scenery, experience love, and learn what is important in this world: people, places. memories—not things or perceptions. — Country Girl: Letting Love and Wanderlust Take the Reins
