In Michael Zadoorian's The Leisure Seeker, the Robinas have shared a wonderful life for more than 60 years. Now in their 80s, Ella suffers from cancer and John has Alzheimer's. Yearning for one last adventure, the self-proclaimed down-on-their-luck geezers kidnap themselves from the adult children and doctors who seem to run their lives and steal away from their home in suburban Detroit on a forbidden vacation of rediscovery. With Ella as his vigilant copilot, John steers their '78 Leisure Seeker RV along the forgotten roads of Route 66 toward Disneyland in search of a past they're having a damned hard time remembering. Yet Ella is determined to prove that, when it comes to life, you can go back for seconds'' - even when everyone says you can't.

    " This book really got to me. It is about an older couple taking their last trip together across the United States in their RV. Ella has cancer and John has Alzheimer's. Their children have forbidden them to go but John and Ella are tough old couple and off they go to enjoy their last vacation together. Their language tends to be colorful at times but if you can get past that it is an enjoyable book. "

    " Maybe this book would have been better if it had been written from the author's male perspective...but I don't think he had the woman's voice or perspective at all. "

    " This was a powerful, unforgettable book. Ella and John have been married for many years, and they decide to take one last vacation. A road trip from Michigan to CA with their final destination being Disney. We are taken on a state by sate journey and we find out the inner dynamics of a lifelong marriage. This put book put me through a whirlwind of emotions: it made me laugh, made me very sad and made me want to learn more about Route 66. I recommend this to anyone who likes road trip novels or a quick, powerful read. "
