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.

Agree with all the readers who loved this book and the whole series. Once started you cannot stop. Beautifully written . Brought me to tears many times but also full of beautiful memories of my beloved husband that I relived throughout the series.

In this book Alan learns about forgiveness as he meets up with his wife's missing mother and he learns more about her story and how this effected his relationship with his wife. Great series filled with so many wonderful characters and lessons learned as he walks across the country.

Loved this entire series and it has inspired another idea on my bucket list. Not to walk across America, but to intentionally visit a group of towns in an area very slowly when I retire.

This is a fabulous book. I picked it up knowing nothing about the author or the walk series. I am hooked! I just put holds on all of his books (all highly rated!) and explored the walk series. I love his writing style. So easy to feel a part of the story. An easy and enjoyable read as well as a page turner.

Excellent story that tells about the interesting historical sites and tourist spots on his walk across America. Develops very complex characters and delves into tough topics in life. Easy read. We even get to meet a Holocaust survivor, his mother-in-law asking for forgiveness and other kind strangers.

Beautifull written. Can't wait for the conclusion as I love the way he writes.

Alan Christoffersen, a widower and ex advertising agent sets out on a cross-country walk from Seattle to Key West to try to forget his losses( his wife , business and home). His fascinating journey is one of hardship, meeting diverse people such as a women who follows him for one hundred miles ( in heels!) and an old man who helps him out and tells him an unforgettable story of being in a prisoner of war camp and many other interesting people in all the different walks of life. The old Polish man teaches Alan how to forgive. “To forgive is to unlock the cage of another’s folly to set ourselves free” (from Alan Christofferson’s diary), This is the third book in Evans’ series titled “The Walk” and is an inspiring journey. Take it with him and you will remember it forever. Available in large print at BPL. Reviewed by SF

I actually prefer his second book... 3rd book does not have that many interesting character people (in my opiniong). Hope the next book is better!! (Summer 2013, long wait!)

The third book in the series is great! As Alan goes on his journey, he meets people along the way and it changes who he is. Can't wait until Book #4 is out.
