A hard-drinking man obsessed with his ex-wife. A dented Harley. A tough, secretive Polish riding instructor. A detour to an unexpected future.

For the first time in his life, Lawrence Tyrone wants to be a different man. But there’s that lifetime of bad behavior to overcome….

A wry, inspiring misadventure with an eccentric assortment of characters and a man who is finally forced to try and get it right.

Professor Lawrence Tyrone didn’t have a drinking problem – or an obsession with his ex-wife – until he discovered she was marrying his brother. When crashing the wedding with disastrous results leaves him divorced for a second time, unemployed and close to rock-bottom, Tyrone moves to the country, buys a Harley and starts taking riding lessons from a secretive Polish expat.

Isolated out in the country, far from his usual haunts and routines, Tyrone gets caught up in the lives of several unpredictable characters – his neighbors and their Labrador dog (who has a mind of her own), his street-smart riding instructor, a rebellious young girl, a gambler and a medical resident caught up in a love triangle.

Meddling in other people’s lives forces Tyrone to confront his own failings. For the first time in his life he wants to be a different man, but there’s that lifetime of bad habits and bad behavior to overcome….

"Right from the start, I found the story to be enthralling and the plot unfolding incrementally in incredibly well-planned ways…If you are a fiction addict, you will love this book. If you tend towards nonfiction, I recommend you take a break and see what you may have been missing by neglecting your fiction reading. I guarantee you will be unable to put "Unexpected Journeys" down!"

Alan Northcott, Author

You really can't help but fall for Lawrence Tyrone. He is infuriating and funny, pathetic and determined, stubborn and willing to learn - such a complex but very inspiring character. This was a wonderful read.
