The Road Home:From #1 New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evans, the dramatic conclusion in the riveting Broken Road trilogy—a powerful redemption story about finding happiness on a pilgrimage across iconic Route 66.
Chicago celebrity and pitchman Charles James is supposed to be dead. Everyone believes he was killed in a fiery plane crash, a flight he narrowly missed. But thanks to that remarkable twist of fate, he’s very much alive and ready for a second chance at life and love. Escaping death has brought Charles some clarity: the money, the fame, the expensive cars; none of it brought him true joy or peace. The last time he was truly happy was when he was married to his ex-wife Monica, before their relationship was destroyed by his ambition and greed.
In the exciting and provocative series that began with The Broken Road and The Forgotten Road, Charles is still on his pilgrimage across the iconic Route 66 in The Road Home. He intends to finish his trek from Amarillo to Santa Monica, despite learning that his ex-wife is now planning to marry another man. With the initial reason for his trip in jeopardy, he still has lessons to learn along the way before he discovers—and arrives at—his true destination.
“Since you asked, the best thing I’ve had lately isn’t on the menu. I had a grilled cheese and green chili sandwich with a cup of tomato soup.”
“That sounds good,” I said. “Only make it two sandwiches and a bowl.”
“You’ve got a healthy appetite for someone so thin.”
“I need the calories,” I said. “I’m walking Route 66.”
“That would do it,” she said. “That’s a lot of calories.”
I glanced around. “How many of your diners are traveling the Route?”
“Probably three-fourths. But in all my years here, I’ve only met three people walking. One of them had a goat with him.”
“I’ve heard of the goat walker.”
“He was carrying his goat in a wagon.”
“I heard that, too.”
“Go figure,” she said, shaking her head. “I’ll put your order in.”
