If there is one thing which characterizes The Golden Road: French Wine or Moonshine?, it is fun. If there is one thing that radiates from this novel, it is the joy of a great friendship... Bernice and Grandy are almost complete opposites: one reserved and the other outgoing, one old fashioned and the other hip, resilient and domineering, conventional and unconventional (respectively), while both are caring mothers in their own ways. Instead of becoming cliche, these characters come alive.


Two very opposite characters, Grandy and Bernice, find themselves rooming together in a retirement home. Bernice is in love with a certain game show host and the other is a bit eccentric, to say the least. The two travel to Los Angeles to be on the game show, win a motor home and escape the retirement home in the motor home for a better life. Join them in their travels, as they visit the most unusual landmarks across the U.S. Find out if they can stay one step ahead of their children and, of course, the ex-husband who wants his half of the motor home? A real page turner with a surprise ending.
