That is the message Rachel Lindens dead grandmother keeps repeating.

Rachel isnt sure if the voice is real or a sinister manifestation of her postpartum depression, but knows one thing -- becoming an absent mother is a family pattern she doesnt want to repeat.Rachel remembers her grandmother, Virginia, resurfacing on their Ohio doorstep in the summer of 1985. Twelve-year-old Rachel witnessed the strain of an uneasy reunion between her mother and Virginia. When Virginia died that winter the question of why she abandoned her family more than thirty years before is left lingering.Now, as an adult, Rachel discovers a photograph of Virginia and a mysterious young man that reveals a life drifting from city to city along the American folk music scene of the 1950s.

The mysterious man in the photo is more than a clue about this life on the road, he is the key to unlocking a family secret that challenges Rachels ideas about what home and motherhood truly mean. Coming to terms with the difficult truth of Virginias past is key for Rachel to escape the spiral of depression and wanderlust that threatens to tear her own family apart.The novels title, Riding the Blind, has roots in an old blues song about train hopping, leaving the past behind and following a future to points unseen.

The novel delves into the burdens and benefits of family history in discovering who you are and how far you can go.
