Author Name: Liz JansenCrash Landing - KDP digital cover

Book Title: Crash Landing: The Long Road Home


As Liz Jansen approached her sixtieth birthday, she was driven to understand how the experiences of her German Mennonite ancestors, who’d arrived in Canada as Russian refugees almost a century earlier, had shaped her. Seeking answers, she got on her motorcycle and set off across the country on what she dubbed the Ancestor Trail—the places they’d lived as they established themselves in a new land. Three weeks into what she’d expected to be eighteen months on the road, a catastrophic crash threatened to sideline her quest. Instead, the ensuing time of uncertainty and stillness led her deeper into an exploration of her cultural roots. A beautifully written memoir about how life’s unexpected and potentially devastating detours lead to new roads, connections, and learning to follow the signs pointing home.
