What I’m Reading: Walking on Water

I just finished up a quick audio book by Richard Paul Evans,Walking on Water: A Novel (The Walk)

It was a good book.  When I got the book I I realized it is actually a book of a series.  I didn’t know until I started listening and at that point I figured what the heck.  I’ll just keep listening.  Well now that I listened to it I am sure wishing that I had started with the first book.

I’ve read several other Richard Paul Evans books and have liked them all.  This one was no different.  I do have to say that reading the book makes me almost wish I liked to travel.  I think the Florida Keys would be fun except I hate bridges and heat and travel.

Here’s what Amazon had to say, “After the death of his beloved wife, after the loss of his advertising business to his once-trusted partner, after bankruptcy forced him from his home, Alan Christoffersen’s daring cross-country journey—a walk across America, from Seattle to Key West, with only the pack on his back—has taught him lessons about love, forgiveness and, most of all, hope.

Now Alan must again return west to face yet another crisis, one that threatens to upend his world just as he had begun to heal from so much loss, leaving him unsure of whether he can reach the end his journey. It will take the love of a new friend, and the wisdom of an old friend, to help him to finally leave the past behind and find the strength and hope to live again.”

Amazon readers say 4.7  stars…I’d say 4.5.  It’s well written and a good book but fairly predictable.

    I have read the entire series and loved every page. Hope you get a chance to read or listen to every one of them. I love your blog and have learned so much from you. Thanks!

  2. I always enjoy your book reviews and try to find the same books through my library. Sometimes I can and sometimes not. I just finished one called The Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Brown. The story is set in the early 1900’s and follows the story of a young boy and his recently widowed grandfather. There is a sequel called Leaving Cold Sassy, but is unfinished as the author died from cancer before she could complete the book. There are notes included that she wrote about how she planned to finish the book. I think I have to read this one also.
