"Well...I know Jess had his problems. He was still bitter about losin' everything. Told me he was just waitin' his time to get even with everybody...said it was why he was to come back up here...said he didn't care how long it took, he'd make it look good to folks, but that he'd have the last laugh." Sam looked over at Nathan for his reaction. The big man was absolutely stunned. His smile fell and he quickly withdrew his hand from Sam's shoulder. Nathan stared a long while at him. Sam, though weak before, somehow regained himself, able to withstand Nathan's searching, disdainful stare. Nathan placed the hand formerly on Sam's shoulder at the top of his left leg, bracing himself with it. He turned to gaze out at the dusky landscape of the ranch; thinking on the words he'd just heard.
The line between finding and losing yourself is often a slippery slope. One misstep and you find yourself sliding into places you never intended to go. Jesse found that in what he thought was only him putting himself up for the winter. It evolved into something much more; a journey into his past. And that's somewhere the boy definitely didn't want to go. Would it cost him his life? It just might have. Only time - and those willing to talk - will tell. Getting lost is easy. Finding your way back home's the tricky part.
Forgetting There, the second book in the All Roads Lead Home saga, reveals more to Jesse's rich Scot-Wichita heritage after his trek up north in Getting There took him to Wyoming in order to winter. Traveling through his Native American grandmother's tales spanning over 80 years across pre-Indian Territory - linking his past, present, and future generations - brought out more secrets than most knew. Recalling them would take its toll. Forgetting There is an up and down thought-provoking tale of betrayal, mystery, suspense, action, and adventure with more twists than a well-knotted rope in an old barn's dirt floor.
L. L. Ward takes you for a ride from past to present.
I got this book via audiobook boom. this story is part of more than one book. each one is long and twisted. The story kept me listening because I wanted to see what would happen to Jesse. This first book ended in a cliffhanger that was continued in the second book. The narration was very well done. The past and present were interchanged throughout the book. The second book left me with a bigger cliffhanger than the first and I only had access to the first two. I would prefer a box set of books if the story is going to continue like this one does.

The author and narrator did a wonderful job on part 2 of the series. Can't wait for part 3!!!

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would but I really hope there's another book because if not then I don't like the ending but I would recommend this book to anyone for a good story
Any additional comments?
This book was a follow up to book one.
It was basically about revenge but it was also about understanding the past and finding oneself.
Overall, an interesting read.
J Rodney Turner did well with the narration.

Would you listen to Forgetting There again? Why?
Definitely YES!! I will, prior to listening to number 3. Can't wait.
What other book might you compare Forgetting There to and why?
The Appaloosa series by Robert J. Parker, narrated by Titus Welliver. Both series have a quality of character to them, a little bit quirky.
What does J Rodney Turner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Having read this book previously, I was very much lost in the past and present and when and how. It didn't flow or come together for me. Now that I've listened to J Rodney Turner's interpretation of the same story everything seemed to come across clearly to me.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I would love to see this series made into a movie. Tom Selleck would make a great Nathan.

All Roads Lead Home: Book Two: Forgetting There
: L. L. Ward
The second book in this series. The listener is taken back into the old west. Things at the Flying M are in a weary mess. Jessie returned, died, and Amanda arrives with their son. From there cattle are disappearing, people claim the property doesn't belong to them, and more. The twists and turns in this slow moving story keep the listener on edge trying to find out what will happen next, who is who, and who is good and evil. The ending leaves you hanging, so I assume and hope for another book.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. J Rodney Turner has a slow drawl, I speed it up on my Kindle to suit my tastes.
