Blind Curves – A Not-What-You’re-Thinking Book About a Woman and a Motorcycle
Blind Curves is the story of a woman who, after losing her husband to mesothelioma, tries everything to reinvent herself and recapture excitement for what comes next.
After following the advice of experts for 18 months, the 57-year-old executive decides to trade her corporate suits for motorcycle leathers and commits herself to a 2,500-mile road trip down America’s Pacific Northwest coast.

At the time, Crill had never ridden anything more powerful than a bicycle. In her new book, Crill recounts her surprising adventure and shares the important lessons she learned along the way.
