No Way Back Today by Eric Shoars is a tale of a midlife crisis. Eric is fast heading for 50 and he still has things he needs to do, things he should have done years before. Not willing to give up on his dreams a second time, Eric tracks down his old friends – Lorelei, Laurel, and Todd – to create No Way Back Today. Four middle-aged people from the Midwest trying to recreate their childhood desires and form a reunion of a band that was never a band to start with, a band that never got off the ground the first time around – can they do it the second time? Join Eric and his friends in a laugh-a-minute story of unfulfilled dreams as midlife comes crashing down on them.
No Way Back Today by Eric Shoars is a hilarious, bittersweet tale of childhood dreams and middle-age. It isn’t just a novel, it’s about not letting go of your dreams, of taking second chances when you get them and of never letting yourself down. The friendships between the four main characters were amazingly developed, an inspiration to us all, and real people that we can all relate to in some way. This story will make you laugh and it will give you hope as it steadily marches towards the end; you will be cheering them on, you will be holding your breath but, most of all, you will be compelled to read to the very end and you will find yourself thinking back on your own dreams, especially the ones that you never realized. Anything is possible if you just put your mind to it. A fun read!
