So many twists and turns

I enjoyed the walk through my home state. On a recent visit we traveled along much of Al's path. I could visualize many of the towns he mentioned. Very touching story of real challenges we face in this experience we call life.
Good but beware this is only the first of a series.

It was a good book but slightly unbelievable. I did enjoy it anyway. We read this for book club and I will probably read the rest of the series as well. I'd like to know what happens to this man.

A story of life, loss, and hope. I absolutely love it! It took only minutes to become involved with the principals of this funny, sweet, sad, and thought provoking story. Can't wait for book 2!
