Night Road by Kristin Hannah

Night Road
By Kristin Hannah
St. Martin's Press, $27.99

I absolutely loved this book! Author Kristin Hannah tells a character driven story and that's what I loved the most. Her characters immediately took on a life of their own and drew me into their world.

The publisher's synopsis tell us that for eighteen years, Jude Farraday has put her children’s needs above her own, and when Lexi Baill moves into their small, close knit community, no one is more welcoming than Jude. Lexi, a former foster child with a dark past, quickly becomes Mia’s best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable.

Jude does everything to keep her kids on track for college and out of harm’s way.

I want to be fair and give you a warning, get plenty of tissues as this IS a tear jerker. But it's well worth the sadness and pain, I won't spoil the plot, but this is one of the best told stories I've read in a long time. When a tragedy hits as they ready for graduation everything is turned upside down. The question for them is are they able and willing to learn from experience? Or will things never change? Can they forgive?

 I'm new to Kristin Hannah's books but I won't be a stranger for long.

I give this one 4 1/2 stars out of 5!
