Caren Rivers never really considered the busy lives of the drivers who passed through her toll booth. Some she encountered frequently, daily, as they moved from to place to place along their journey. Others, she doubted she’d ever see again. She’d always wondered what made them chose one route over another. Was the obvious choice to engage the shortest line or was it the interaction with a familiar face? Is the journey of a life simply a multitude of potential pathways affected by points of intersection? What was her journey going to be now that her husband and son were gone? These were the questions that kept her awake at night. Journey is the story of nine travelers making their way along life’s roadway and how these lives once connected, remain a part of one another for all time.
