PEDAL by Louis K Lowy
The plot is very simple, main character meets adversity, which should make the story easy to follow except the book is not really about adversity it is about achieving victory. PEDAL by Louis K Lowy is about finding a way to get passed unplanned unexpected difficulties by coming out of your comfort zone.
If I had read the description of this book found on Amazon I would have passed on the book. It has a lot of catchy words like” single, romance, and female; but the book is not a romance novel and it the main character could have been a man with a brother who experienced a bad relationship. Being a forty-nine year old teacher who has been fired is significant but not an unrecoverable life event. However, what makes things difficult for the main character Joanne and most people today is other people, a concept many readers are dealing with in their own lives. It is the family dynamics within the novel that will bond the reader with the writings. How do you deal with your problems when other people have opinions of who you are and what you should be doing?
I recommend PEDAL, a good motivational read on how to overcome difficulties by facing your past and pushing yourself into the future. As you take the journey from trouble to triumph with the main character you will be encouraged. Success comes when you pedal forward even when you don’t feel like it.
