I was worried that I would be disappointed by this book since Kristin Hannah is not generally so dark. But she did not disappoint.

Night Road is the story of a young girl who has spent her life in foster care until she turns 14. She meets twins her age, they befriend each other thru high school until one terrible night.
The narration is excellent and drew me into the story. It's one I'll listen to again, I'm sure. Well worth a credit-aimed at teens and young women this is a heart rending novel

I highly recommend this book and have spoken to most of my friends about it already. This book had me so engrossed in the story that I broke into tears on a few different occasions. At one point, my husband had called and I was so caught up in the book that I was crying to him about a chapter. That has never happened before. Kristin Hannah never disappoints but she outdid herself with this one.
When one of the characters was giving birth I cried for her. I held my breathe as I listened to the details. My heart ached for her. I don't remember ever being so emotionally involved with a book.
She has a great voice and it took me right into the story.
I don't know the answer to that.
It was a beautiful book that exposed you to so many raw emotions. As sad as it was, I loved reading it. I went through the emotions with the characters and so few books do that for the reader.
AN excellent and thought provoking story, that deeply connects with the reader's heart. An excellent narrator that enables the book to pack a double punch. Cried through much of it, but loved it!
I had a hard time with this book, it takes you on an emotional rollercoaster. however, I couldn't stop listening. this is the second book I have read by Kristin Hannah and I am left again surprised at how much I love her writing. She is unpredictable and it isn't always a fairy tale, but a heartfelt, real story.
Not what I expected from this amazing author. Story of despair & teenage tragedy & parental despondency. Prison. Bleak. Hopeless, but wait, after all that agony...will it end up all right??? Shoot me now. I am sorry I listened to this one.
After reading Nightgale from Kristin Hannah, I was very excited to read some of her other books, but Night Road was a disappointment.
I MIGHT be able to give her another chance, because of Nightgale, but this book was disappointing.
The general plot line was interesting, but the characters were annoying and the development was rushed and imbalanced, so I couldn't fully embrace the story.
I found the character of Jude irritating from the beginning. She was so self-righteous throughout the novel, and then she became bitter and unreasonable for the majority of the plot. I didn't really care to hear her thoughts and opinions, because I disagreed so much. Towards the end, she has some redemptive moments, but it the change feels extremely sudden, and I didn't trust it. There are a few plot points that are started, but honestly never brought up again--it felt choppy and I was not caught up in the emotion that a novel over this subject matter would elicit. Not my favorite listening experience.
