By C. Graber
Join in this journey with a man who travels to forget yet longs for the woman of his dreams. An arduous search to find himself in the process during the rapidly changing world of the 1970's. A sweet, poiniant, satisfying read.
Profoundly insightful and beautifully written. A must read.
This is a sweet and engaging memoir of RJ Cook's youth; the tangled, mixed feelings of a young man trying to find love and purpose in his life, a refreshing and enlightening glimpse into the heart and mind of a teenaged boy's "world". Something we women hardly ever get to visit. Looking forward to more from this writer.
The most unusual memoir I've ever read, but it keeps you involved. The ending is heart-warming, especially if you've had a first love in your life that didn't work out. Recommended it to all my friends, and to anyone who is looking for a quick read of a good book.

‘The Road behind Me’ details coping with heartache, epiphany of realization later in life. The book reflects a much freer, more open time in our society, before the onslaught of the tight-minded regulatory thinking that exists today.
The chance meeting with a lost lover and the realization that all was not as it seemed inspired author RjCook to write the painful memoir of his broken heart, “The Road behind Me: (the Lie of Hannah)” (published by iUniverse).
“If a reader has ever loved and lost, he or she will understand the book’s appeal,” RjCook says. “Life is a continuance of surprises. Despair and painful memories are often dictated by what the mind is recalling and not what the heart actually knows.”
“The Road behind Me” is a story of a young man trying to understand love and purpose, all during the time of free love, peace, Woodstock, Nixon and Vietnam. It is a memoir of a lost love while young and a cross-country relocation, only to discover distance does nothing to diminish the hurt of a broken heart. Lastly, it is a story of the adventures encountered on the journey across the United States and a late-in-life epiphany after living life based on a single deception for the better part of 40 years.
“The book reflects a much freer, more open time in our society, before the onslaught of the tight-minded regulatory thinking that exists today,” RjCook says. “It details a period in our history before the world was overcast with the likes of the Internet, cell phones, tablets … a much larger world because a person’s vision only reached as far as he could see.”
