What would you do if you lost everything — your job, your home, and the love of your life — all at the same time? When it happens to Seattle ad executive Alan Christoffersen, he's tempted by his darkest thoughts. A bottle of pills in his hand and nothing left to live for, he plans to end his misery. Instead, he decides to take a walk. But not any ordinary walk. Taking with him only the barest of essentials, Al leaves behind all that he's known and heads for the farthest point on his map: Key West, Florida. The people he encounters along the way, and the lessons they share with him, will save his life — and inspire yours.Richard Paul Evans's extraordinary New York Times bestsellers have made him one of the world's most beloved storytellers. A life-changing journey, both physical and spiritual, The Walk is the first of an unforgettable series of books about one man's search for hope.
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.
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!
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.
