Summary:
"A searing memoir about one woman's road through heartbreak to hope following the death of her troubled brother, told through the series of cars that accompanied her. Growing up in a blue-collar family in the Midwest, Melissa Stephenson--a dreamer and budding writer born with an innate wanderlust--longed for escape, and she found in automobiles the promise of a future beyond Indiana state lines. From a lineage of secondhand family cars of the late '60s, to the '70s Ford she drove away from her brother's house after he took his life (leaving Melissa the truck, a dog, and a few mixed tapes), to the VW van she now uses to take her kids camping, she knows these cars better than she knows some of the people closest to her. Driven through grief and toward hope, Melissa reckons with what it means to lose a beloved sibling, with a voice as achingly beautiful as it is raw. Driven is a powerful story of healing, for all who have had to look back at pain to find the way forward."--Dust jacket.
