WALKING ON WATER (RICHARD PAUL EVANS)
Simon & Schuster|May 6, 2014|Hardcover|ISBN: 978-1-4516-2835-7
In this fifth entry in the New York times bestselling WALK SERIES, Richard Paul Evans's hero Alan Christoffersen must say some painful goodbyes and learn some important lessons as he comes to the end of his cross-country walk to Key West, Florida.
After the death of his belovd wife, after the loss of his advertising business to his once - trusted partner, after bankruptcy forced him from his home, Alan Christoffersen's daring cross-country journey - a walk across America, from Seattle to Key West, with only the pack on his back - has taught him lesons about love, forgiveness and, most of all, hope.
Now Alan must again return west to face yet another crisis, one that threatens to upend his world just as he had begun to heal from so much loss, leaving him unsure of whether he can reach the end of his journey. It will take the love of a new friend, and the wisdom of an old friend, to help him to finally leave the past behind and find the strength and hope to live again.
Alan mets some interesting people on his walk but he suffers immeasurable heartbreak on this particular trek but recovers enough to continue on to Key West. This walk means a great to Alan and you'll see why at the end of the book. I've enjoyed this series so much. One book a year for five years, but the nice thing is that each book can be read as a stand alone, you don't need to have read the previous books to enjoy the others. I'm really sorry to see this series end. I hope Mr. Evans changes his mind and pens a sixth and perhaps even a seventh book. I'd like to get some more information on Alan and Falene as I'm sure a lot of you would too! WALKING ON WATER was an enjoyable book to say the least that left me with a smile as wide as the Grand Canyon on my face!
