Join one of America’s beloved storytellers on a walk like no other: one man’s unrelenting search for hope. Reeling from the sudden loss of his wife, his home, and his business, Alan Christoffersen, a once-successful advertising executive, has left everything he knew behind and set off on an extraordinary cross-country journey. Carrying only a backpack, he is walking from Seattle to Key West, the farthest destination on his map.
Now almost halfway through his trek, Alan sets out to walk the nearly 1,000 miles between South Dakota and St. Louis, but it’s the people he meets long the way who give the journey its true meaning: a mysterious woman who follows Alan’s walk for close to a hundred miles, the ghost hunter searching graveyards for his wife, and the elderly Polish man who gives Alan a ride and shares a story that Alan will never forget.
Full of hard-won wisdom and truth, THE ROAD TO GRACE is a compelling and inspiring novel about hope, healing, grace, and the meaning of life.
As always, Richard Paul Evans has penned another fine piece of work. The story is amazing and the people Alan meets during this 1,000 mile trek will be people you won’t soon forget. The one that struck me the most was the Polish man and his story will wrench and twist your heart. This is book #3 of the series of 5 books with book #4 coming out in the spring of 2013 which I’ll definitely be picking up. This whole series has been phenomenal.
