Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Karen McQuestion comes a moving novel about broken hearts…and what it takes to put them back together again.

At nine years of age, Logan Weber knows the routine. Keep quiet, make the food last, and don’t ever cause trouble. He’ll do what it takes to evade the rages of his troubled, violent father. Even though he’s only a child, Logan already knows too much - has seen too much.

So when the opportunity presents itself, Logan runs. He has no idea where his journey will lead, or that the grandmother he’s been told is dead is desperately searching for him.

Alone with no home of his own, Logan looks for a safe place to hide. Relying on his instincts and the kindness of strangers, the boy manages to touch the lives of everyone he meets. But his innocent heart cannot survive in the adult world without the most basic human need of all: love.

A Grandmother's Quest

I absolutely loved this story. The characters believable and narration was stupendous! At first glance this appeared to be a very straight forward story, but it was crafted so the reader became aware of all the back stories of the supporting characters. The character's interactions with the child in the story adds depth and brings an entirely different dimension to the story. Karen Mcquestion always brings her best and most creative self to everything she writes. Another must-read@

Oh my!

I loved this story. I did work my way through a box of Kleenex but they were happy tears. I usually stick to gruesome mysteries etc. but took a chance on this one. I totally “binge listened” and was surprised at myself. But as I stated previously, I loved the story. Also, I wonder if the author was at one time a Speech Therapist, I was and was amazed at the accuracy with which she described the room etc. Great job!!!!

Poor take on classic themes

A story like this needs to grab your heart, but this tale fails to take you deep enough into the troughs or high enough to the peaks of an all too common tragedy. Maybe my dislike of the narration turned me off the characters and plot.

Emily Durante does a great old lady voice, but otherwise does not sell the story very well. If you want a soft-core grandmother-centric story, this is the one for you.

The strength of love and power of the Human Spirit

I loved this book it was a great story. Well narrated and difficult to stop listening to. Although it was fictional this story depicted real life situations depicting The Power of Love and resilience of the human spirit.
