Solidarity by Adelle Laudan was a short, quick read. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Shag and his friends, Larry and Bones are riding to Michigan for the Easy Rider Rodeo. They’ve been planning this trip for near a year now.

Bones is so massive, he dwarfs his midnight blue motorcycle, Fatboy. His size alone had mothers scurrying to protect their children. They are unaware this man is the same one who spends the holiday season organizing Toy Runs for kids in need.

Larry is antsy and ready to get going.. His 1953 Indian Chief with iridescent cream paint appeared to change color at each bend in the road. With is bald head and fair complexion, Larry could get lost in the color scheme with his bike.

The three bikers head out, letting their thoughts be carried by the wind, and riding the long open road ahead of them, all 650 clicks of it. (403 miles/650 kilometres)

Only a few pages in to the story, we discover that Shag has lost his leg due to a horrible motorcycle accident. We also find out he’s been ‘asleep’ a long time, but at this point, we don’t know exactly how long. The book continues in this manner, with learning what lead up to the accident, how it happened, told in a flashback manner. Intermingled in an easy to read style we also see the ‘present time’ story of what’s happening now, and how both Shag and his wife, Lucy are dealing with the loss of the leg, Shag being unable to ride his motorcycle any longer, and his inability to cope with friends and family.

While being only 23 pages long, Solidarity tells a story well. It’s not an epic novel of pure inspiration, yet it inspires the reader. One understands easily why Shag is feeling as he does, reacts to people in the growling manner he now uses, and admire Lucy for sticking with him, regardless of how he speaks to her. She knows he’s hurting, literally and figuratively and also knows a secret, which the reader finds out at the very end of the book. A sweet, wonderful ending ensues.

I recommend Solidarity if you’ve never read Adelle Laudan before. I hadn’t and this short interested me enough to try it and I did like it. I’m now interested in finding more of Ms. Laudan’s work.

On a star rating scale, I’d give this a solid **** and recommend it to pretty much anyone.
