When Jeff, a retired airline pilot, joins his son, Todd, in a long-haul trucking business, venture, the freedom of the open road sets them on an unexpected journey of discovery that will profoundly affect the rest of their lives. This gripping and intelligent novel explores the new relationship between a parent and an adult child when the old titles become inadequate to redefine it. This is done by contrasting four sets of father/sons from dysfunctional to devoted, although they are unaware of the others they exert a profound influence upon each other, and collide in a tale full of depth and wisdom. A mystery from Jeff ’s military past must be solved and come to terms with while he and Todd learn to build love, fight their fears and deal with life on life’s terms. Join these intriguing, flawed and courageous men on that endless black ribbon, like the rest of us unknowing the final destination.
