An autobiography that has its provenance in the Pacific Northwest, Fred Downey's Lemonade to Lemons is a love story with a brilliant twist of fate.

In a well examined life viewed with self-depreciating humor, life is measured by the moments that take away our breath and how life's outcome can change on choices made. Downey makes his readers follow the cool meanders and whitewaters of fate in an attempt to meet his lost sweetheart of 30 years. This book shows the author's personal zeitgeist with words of wisdom and illustrations.

As salmon follow a difficult zigzag course, so does Downey's adventures through Canada, Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. These trips require perseverance and belief in a superior guidance to sustain the drive to sanctuary and love. This autobiography will provide a spiritual paddle for all in search of their own destinies. Fred Downey’s work, in this context, is a life defining journey in various contexts and circumstances, his struggling for inner peace by the flip flops and strange twists of his fate.
