My Life of Travels and Adventures: Book Review: Night Road

Book Review: Night Road

26 April 2012

Holy moly, I read a book.  A book that does not rhyme, does not have fuzzy animals and is not bright colored.  Woohoo.

I really have enjoyed the books by Kristen Hannah so when I saw Night Road on the shelf at Target recently, I snatched it right up.  Of course I wasn't really sure when I would get around to reading it...

It took a couple months but I finished it and loved it.

According to goodreads... "For a mother, life comes down to a series of choices. 
To hold on…
To let go..
To forget…
To forgive…
Which road will you take? 

For eighteen years, Jude Farraday has put her children’s needs above her own, and it shows—her twins, Mia and Zach—are bright and happy teenagers. When Lexi Baill moves into their small, close knit community, no one is more welcoming than Jude. Lexi, a former foster child with a dark past, quickly becomes Mia’s best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable.

Jude does everything to keep her kids safe and on track for college. It has always been easy-- until senior year of high school. Suddenly she is at a loss. Nothing feels safe anymore; every time her kids leave the house, she worries about them.

On a hot summer’s night her worst fears come true. One decision will change the course of their lives. In the blink of an eye, the Farraday family will be torn apart and Lexi will lose everything. In the years that follow, each must face the consequences of that single night and find a way to forget…or the courage to forgive.

NIGHT ROAD is vivid, emotionally complex novel that raises profound questions about motherhood, identity, love, and forgiveness. It is a luminous, heartbreaking novel that captures both the exquisite pain of loss and the stunning power of hope. This is Kristin Hannah at her very best, telling an unforgettable story about the longing for family, the resilience of the human heart, and the courage it takes to forgive the people we love."

Night Road took me a bit to get into.  After the first background bit,  I was hooked and did not want to put it down.  Like all of Kristin Hannah's other books, I really enjoyed it.
