The Walk: A Novel (Walk Series)
by Richard Paul Evans
New York: Simon & Schuster, 2010
As a long-time fan of Richard Paul Evans, author of "The Christmas Box" and several other best-selling books, I was so excited to pick up his latest offering, "The Walk." Alan Christofferson had it all - a beautiful wife who loved him, a hugely successful business, and all the things that money could by. Truly, he led a charmed life. Yet, in the matter of six short weeks, he loses it all. He wants to end it all, but his wife had made him promise he would continue to live. Heartbroken and homeless, he decides that he he is going to take a walk - a long walk. His plan is to journey all the way from Seattle to Key West, Florida. This first book of a five-book series takes him across Washington state. It is a journey of discovery and faith and healing. This book truly did not disappoint and I am already looking forward to the next in the series.
