Have you ever wanted to â€śrun awayâ€ť for a while? Where would you go? How would you live life differently? In the year she turned 50, Liz Moore acted on a long-time daydream. She loaded up her car and left home for a year. Her goal was to randomly find a nice town far away, move in, get a job, and live life without a plan and away from all things familiar. After a month to two months, it would be time to leave for the next town and a new set of adventures, until she had completed a tour of America. She had not imagined where the roads would lead: to work â€śin securityâ€ť at the lip of the Grand Canyon, and fun in the concrete canyons of New York, to sharing a house with a globe-trotting professor, to over-coming chaos in a New England waitressing job. â€śMaking it homeâ€ť refers to making each town home for the time she was there. â€śMaking it homeâ€ť also means rushing home to deal with crises, including a devastating betrayal and family tragedy.
