“A hard-drinking man. A dented Harley. A detour to an unexpected future.”

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 in a love triangle.
