sidetracked

The debut book for new Oregon indie author, Amanda Mailey. Special author signed copies are offered through the Built Marketplace.

When risking it all, in a quest to find joy in the art of living, comes at just the right time.

In the wake of Trump's presidency, the #metoo movement, emboldened racism, gun violence rising, three layoffs in five years, and the height of commercialism, this successful ad executive has had enough. Spirit dampened, with mostly anger where there once was laughter, she risks it all in search of a more meaningful connection with herself, her family, and the world.

Set in her hometown of the PNW and the unfamiliar lands of Albania, she recounts her personal experience in an honest portrayal of self-discovery reflecting on mainstream American cultural norms and expectations. Knowing nothing about Tirana, Albania when she arrives, her observations of these two societies surface a new awakening. Get lost reading her intimate thoughts as she struggles to heal by hitting the reset button.

What people are saying about this book - Reader Reviews

“This story is a wonderful juxtaposition of two journeys; a physical journey of the Mailey families trip to Albania and the very personal journey of the author, Amanda Mailey. In disruption lies growth, and the Mailey's very much disrupted their American lifestyle.â€
