Publisher's Summary

The Road at My Door follows protagonist Reese Cavanaugh on a dark journey to save her family without destroying herself. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War and the sexual revolution, Mohr examines cultural forces shaping family life in a decade of upheaval. Road is a perfect storm of conflicting needs and beliefs about love of self, love of another, fast-changing attitudes about sex, and the toxicity of family secrets. Through Reese Cavanaugh, Lori Mohr delves into the deep tension between appearance and reality, portraying a family in turmoil.

    Story
    "Wow, Talking About Secret Keeping"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. This story was not one that I could get through at one setting. I had to listen to some light-hearted stories in between listening to this one. The family put a lot on a teen's shoulders in making her keep the family secrets. the way the story was developed and narrated says a lot about both people. Well developed but depressing and narrated so well that you could feel the depression.

    "The Road at My Door"

    The Road at My Door
    : Lori Windsor Mohr

    A teen girl growing up in a dysfunctional family in the 1960's. The family secrets that the protagonist is expected to keep are enough to send her into a downward spiral. The more she fights to save her family the farther she is trampled down. The listener will keep listening to see if she gets a happily ever after.




    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Bernardette Arellano.

    "Too depressing to finish this book"
    What disappointed you about The Road at My Door?

    For me, it was hard to take the incredibly horrible situation this young woman winds up in and cannot seem to escape. If there is a happy ending, ? Not sure, as I gave up before getting that far.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    sadness and bad nightmares


    Any additional comments?

    Be grateful if you were raised by semi-decent parents

    Story
    "The Road at My Door is a beautiful book"
    Would you listen to The Road at My Door again? Why?

    The Road at My Door is a beautiful, heartrending work of serious literature. It’s also a page-turner and very accessible for all readers: Teens, adults, avid readers, people who read once a year; everyone. <br/><br/>It’s told through the eyes of a teen girl in 1960s Pacific Palisades in LA but from an adult perspective which sometimes sneaks through. A loveable, likeable, sympathetic narrator, Reece Cavanaugh struggles to hold her family together when her folks aren’t getting along. But when a Catholic priest enters the picture and meets Reece’s icy, feminist mom, everything changes. This initiates the holding of The Secret. Reece cannot tell anyone. Layers of complexity are added on and soon Reece is so deep in secrets she can hardly breathe. When it becomes clear her depression is destroying her, and her father cannot protect her, she plunges to depths seen by few. From here, the bottom, there is only one way left to go: up. <br/><br/>This is a redemption tale, a story of tragedy and secrets and sickness but also profound hope. It’s a quick read. I gulped it down in two short evenings. I couldn’t stop reading. I highly recommend it. As a published writer myself, who makes a living as a book editor, I can say from experience: This is some of the strongest writing I’ve seen in a long time. It comes recommended by David Corbett, New York Times Notable author (The Art of Character) and Nancie Clare, former editor-in-chief of “LA,” the LA Times magazine. <br/><br/>Listen to this book. You will not regret it. <br/>

    "Grim But Excellent"

    This is a great book - one of my new favourites. The story is grim but powerful; a sad glimpse into the life a young woman battling her family, her life, and herself. It's exceptionally well written, and the characters are deep and well developed. Combined with excellent narration, this was a great listening experience.

    I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
