Holy Heck, I was not expecting that ending. I literally gasped when the words were said. Goodness Gracious, Richard Paul Evans knows how to dangle a cliffhanger.

Alan Christoffersen is continuing his walk to Key West, Florida after the sudden death of his wife and the loss of his business, home and cars. He has his support system in place and each mile walked brings new people and new revelations.

As he is leaving a hotel one morning, a woman calls his name, she looks vaguely familiar but Alan cannot put a name to the face. When she reveals herself, Alan is furious, this is the woman that had caused the anguish in his wife’s life. A woman that he has despised without knowing. Revealing a story that in its conclusion, he realized, would not have lead his beloved wife to him in the first place. The Road to Grace is a story about forgiveness, not forgetting, but of letting go of past hurts and not allowing them rule your life.

Alan has met some phenomenal people in his quest and every one of them has helped define who the new Alan will be. Part travelogue, part discovery, Richard Paul Evans takes the reader on an incredible journey though our country and its remarkable people.
