Figli dello stesso padre, ma di due donne diverse, Germano ed Emilio si rivedono dopo un lungo silenzio. Sono diversissimi, accomunati unicamente dall'amore insoddisfatto per il padre Giovanni, una figura possente, passionale ed egocentrica, che ha abbandonato la madre di Germano perché la sua nuova donna aspettava un figlio, Emilio, per poi abbandonare poco dopo anche lei come tutte le altre donne della sua vita. Germano, pur essendo sempre stato il preferito del padre, non ha mai perdonato al fratello minore di essere la causa del divorzio dei genitori. Emilio, cresciuto sapendo di essere il figlio non voluto, ha sempre cercato, invano, l'affetto del padre e del fratello. Nei pochi giorni che trascorreranno insieme, le antiche rabbie e il richiamo del sangue riemergeranno furiosi.

Forty-nine and single. Fired from her lifelong passion: teaching music.
Stripped of her self-worth. Can she reclaim her life through bicycle racing? Joanne Brick's thirty years as an elementary school music teacher evaporated into the rising sea of layoffs. A lifetime of dedication gone.
At forty-nine, single with an ailing mom and bitter divorced sister, the future looked bleak. Family relationships soured as conversations moved to "the lettuce zone"-cold and crisp. Then one day, while cleaning out the garage for a yard sale, inspiration struck as she dusted off an old long-forgotten bicycle. And when she took her first ride she knew it was time to sink or pedal. "Onward! That was the answer that had eluded her earlier. There was dignity in that word. There was hope." Never a sports fanatic and sorely out of shape, Joanne was barely able to ride straight, but she took up bicycle racing because it added purpose to her life. "Joanne increased her own speed. The wind whipped her face. The whirring of the spinning spokes and chains rose in pitch as she spun faster.
She was flying again, beyond failed careers, spurned lovers, regrets, and mistakes. She spun even quicker. Her breath came in swift, hard grunts." She pedaled past unemployment, failed relationships, family drama, and career loss. Her life began to fill with new friends, an inspirational Desert Storm vet turned cycling coach, and a sleek new physique from all the training. Then she ran into a brick wall in the form of Sheila Dominary, a women's bike racing adversary. Will Joanne regain her confidence as she pedals toward redemption, romance, adventure, and life beyond unemployment? Pedal is an inspirational journey.
It is a contemporary story that deals not only with family relationships, but also with life's turning points and how ordinary people handle them.
