The Road to Grace by Richard Paul Evans, 233 pages, read by Tracy, on 10/24/2012

This is the third book in The Walk series. Alan Christoffersen has lost everything important in his life. His wife dies and when his business goes under he loses all his possessions. In the first book he decides to walk from Seattle to Key West Florida. I enjoyed most of the first two books because of the places he walks through and the people he meets along the way. In this book he makes it to St. Louis. Unfortunately Alan is starting to experience physical problems. He suffers from dizziness and passes out several times by the side of the road. The first time a driver stops and gives him a ride to the hospital. They run tests and the man offers to let him recover at his home. When he feels better he continues and stops in Hannibal Missouri to do some touring. I enjoyed this part since it’s a place I want to see someday. When he gets dizzy again he wakes up in another hospital with some bad news. The books are well written and fun at times but I don’t think I will continue since the ending to this one is sad.
