Alan Christoffersen, a once-successful advertising executive, wakes one morning to find himself injured, alone, and confined to a hospital bed in Spokane, Washington. Sixteen days earlier, reeling from the sudden loss of his wife, his home, and his business, Alan left everything he knew behind and set off on an extraordinary cross-country journey. Carrying only a backpack, he planned to walk to Key West, the farthest destination on his map. But a vicious roadside stabbing has interrupted Alan's trek and robbed him of his one source of solace: the ability to walk.
Homeless and facing months of difficult recovery, Alan has nowhere to turn—until a mysterious woman enters his life and invites him into her home. Generous and kind, Angel seems almost too good to be true, but all is not as it appears. Alan soon realizes that before he can return to his own journey, he must first help Angel with hers.
From one of America's most beloved and best-selling storytellers comes an astonishing tale of life and death, love and second chances, and why sometimes the best way to heal your own suffering is by helping to heal someone else's. Inspiring, moving, and full of wisdom, Miles to Go picks up where the best seller The Walk left off, continuing the unforgettable series about one man's unrelenting search for hope.
Also listen to the first book, The Walk.

The first book and the start of this book were a little slow. The author who narrates the story seems to be getting stronger with his voice but still is a bit week. I would like to hear more about the physical and practical challenges he faces every day. But this book is really more about spirituality. I will keep going with the series but I keep thinking if this was Stephen King the whole series would be the length of 1 of his books. Still it is a very easy read and uplifting as well.
If you liked The Walk, you will love Miles to Go. I can hardly wait for book 3. We've only made it to Memphis!
I can't wait to download the next book. I was worried that it would be a sad story but it's very uplifting actually. makes me want to get out and see more of the country although not on foot!
A continuation of a story of a man finding himself after the loss of his wife and everything else. Inspirational. Shows the good and bad of mankind, and choices to respond. Promotes thoughtfulness and self-examination about how we deal with life.
I get so caught up in Alan's story that I listen whenever possible - in the car, With Bluetooth headphones while doing housework. I'm going to get the next segment right now. Can't wait to get back on the road.
I have always loved to read, and now I really enjoy listening to my books as well!!
I read Richard Paul Evans' book The Walk without realizing it was the beginning of a five-book series. Then I discovered the rest of the books--I devoured the remaining four, one right after the other.
I highly recommend this series, but I would definitely read them in order.
This is a great story about overcoming obstacles and having friendships.
Second installment of the "walk" series
just love the whole book
I cried, laughed, hoped and prayed right alongside Alan
The author reads his story with great emotion. He has a wonderfully soothing voice.
Probably not, it is not an information book, it is an entertainment and I don't normally repeat that type of book, movie, etc.
The walker - it is his story
none more special that any other
