A Book We Love: The Leisure Seeker

The Leisure Seeker by Michael Zadoorian The Leisure Seeker

In 2008, John and Ella Robina abandon their adult children in Detroit for one last trip across the country in their 1978 Leisure Seeker motorhome.  Big deal, you say. Well, John has Alzheimer’s disease and Ella has terminal cancer and they are determined to enjoy every last minute of their life together.  They decide to stick to the old Route 66 to keep off of the scary interstate highway system. Filled with memories of their lives together and some humorous moments, The Leisure Seeker turned out to be much more serious than I expected. Lots of end of life issues are pondered in this unique novel.
