Immortal Highway

Immortal Highway: A Memoir
Available November 2015

Just three months after his wife’s death to breast cancer, Jon packs up his infant son, Myles, and they set off on a six-week “Healing Tour” through Canada and the United States. Their journey, set to the soundtrack of the music Jon loves, sees them negotiating rolling mid-western hills, exploring a cave, losing confidence in the prairies, and finding it again in the desert states.

As Jon starts to learn to balance his sorrow with the joy of new fatherhood, a sobering episode in the Rockies compels him to question what his life might have looked like had his wife survived.

Part travel book, part love story, Immortal Highway: A Memoir explores the nature of love, family, and grief in incredible times.
