The choices she had made as a younger woman no longer fit, and she could not live an authentic life if she continued to blindly follow those paths. So, in the spring of 2007, she took early retirement, sold her home and nearly all possessions, and set off with her golden retriever Charlie on a year-long coming-of-age journey. It was a pilgrimage to rediscover herself and make sense of her new life, while exploring the country she had served as an aide to a U.S.

Senator for ten years.This is the true story of a 25,000-mile journey in a Class A motor home that visited forty-one states and one Canadian Province from north of Seattle to Key West, Florida, from San Diego to Bar Harbor, Maine- the places seen and the new faces who became friends in between. It follows the sometimes-humorous travels and travails of a single woman learning to live the RV lifestyle.

More importantly, it chronicles an interior journey—the story of spiritual quest and a path to God. And it follows the sometimes circuitous path taken that helped the author come to terms with major changes in her life and that finally enabled her to feel at home in the skin she now wears.During her year of travel, Hovenkotter kept a blog and wrote a series of articles for The Oregonian newpaper. Sharing her adventure and thoughts with the newspaper’s readers, she elicited much positive interest and requests to turn her experience into a book.

Many women who read her blogs and columns expressed that they lived vicariously through her. Several admitted they wished they could make such a radical change in their lives, but they would never have the courage or tenacity to see it through. Hovenkotter often wondered herself if she had sufficient courage and tenacity to complete her journey.If you are an armchair traveler who enjoys visiting new places vicariously, reading 42 States of Grace: A Woman’s Journey will make you feel like you are sitting in the passenger seat of a large motor home, enjoying the scenery as you let Maureen take you along on her adventure.

She does all the work, you get all the enjoyment.If you are a person who cheers for the underdog and enjoys following the inspirational efforts of a plucky heroine facing numerous challenges on her quest to create a new life for herself following a devastating personal loss, you will enjoy 42 States of Grace. In this quest story, a widow overcomes antagonists that often turn out to be her own limiting thoughts and fears on a journey to personal knowledge and spiritual enlightenment.If you are a woman who wonders if you are living your best life, being authentic and fulfilling your life’s purpose, if you have had a long-time marriage or relationship end suddenly and feel lost and alone, if you belong to an organized religion but feel that there is more to God than they’ve let on,you will be inspired, entertained and truly feel like you have joined Maureen on this journey exploring the United States and her innermost desires.

You may even be convinced to set off on a pilgrimage of your own.If you are a dog lover, and particularly a fan of golden retrievers, you will enjoy meeting Charlie, Maureen’s companion on the journey, as he makes friends for himself and his mistress everywhere he travels.If you are a spiritual seeker, looking for a Creator you can believe in, trust and grow to love, 42 States of Grace provides a thoughtful, inspirational journey from rules and dogma to a deeper system of beliefs in an ever-loving, always-merciful God.
