Into the Sunrise by Becky Black

On the day her son leaves home, Lorna Friern makes a long-planned escape from her loveless marriage. With one suitcase, her laptop, and a box full of books, she leaves L.A. to drive to a new life in a house she’s inherited in Long Island. On the same day, after Northern Californian wildfires burn down the motel where she lives and the bar where she works, Zoe Bradshaw decides to move on again. Her destination, Las Vegas. Maybe. Or home to her family. Maybe.

The two women meet on the road and when Zoe’s old junker of a car finally gives up the ghost, she accepts the offer to travel with Lorna for a while. perhaps all the way to New York. Lorna wasn’t looking for romance so soon after leaving her marriage, but chance put Zoe in her way and Lorna doesn’t want to leave her behind. Sharing a car and motel room beds, the two women learn each other’s histories and secrets. Only at the end of the journey will they know if they’ve escaped the past, as it makes its last grabs at both of them.

Zoe has left the Northern California town she had being living in after her home and the bar she was working at are destroyed by fire. But Zoe never stays anywhere for long. Lorna has left her husband and set off on a cross country drive, headed for Long Island. On the first day of her trip, Lorna meets Zoe and, after a night of passion, they end up travelling together.

I struggled to like Lorna. Her actions when leaving her husband and the way she deals with the aftermath of her actions annoyed me even though I understood where she was coming from.

I really enjoyed the road trip aspect of the story and seeing this couple learn about each other. Unfortunately, for me, the romance lacked passion. The spark between this couple was missing. Overall though, it was a nice story.

Becky lives in the UK, and her writing is primarily fuelled by tea and rainy days. After spending far too many years only thinking about writing she finally started putting words down back in 2003 and hasn’t stopped since, still trying to make up for lost time.

She’s a longtime science fiction fan and a lover of all types of stories, but especially those about people who find themselves in the trickiest of no-win situations. She likes nothing more than chasing her characters up trees and throwing rocks at them until they figure a way down.
