Synopsis

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 along 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.

The scenery extends from Rapid City, South Dakota, to St. Louis, Missouri. I think this book is worth the trip.

The book doesn't have a twist at the end. It has road construction...and a boulder in the road for Alan to deal with. I'm assuming there will be a part four. I very much wish to know what Alan is going to do next.

I was fascinated by the combination history/travelogue that narrator Alan provides as he walks from Montana through South Dakota...and finally into Missouri (Hannibal and Mark Twain country).
