Publisher's Summary

Richard Paul Evans reads the second novel in his New York Times best-selling trilogy about a man on an inspirational pilgrimage across Route 66 to find his way back to himself. 

Chicago celebrity and motivational speaker Charles James is supposed to be dead. Everyone believes he was killed in a fiery plane crash. But thanks to a remarkable twist of fate he's very much alive and well, and ready for a second chance at life. But will he use this opportunity to right some wrongs from his old life and start over the right way this time? 

The Forgotten Road is the second book in the "thoughtful, well-plotted" (Kirkus Reviews) trilogy by beloved storyteller Richard Paul Evans. It is an engrossing, inspiring story of redemption and the power of second chances.

Disappointed

I normally love everything Richard Paul Evans and can’t wait for his new books, but this one just didn’t have much story! Lots of history but not much in the way of a plot. Disappointing!

This Cannot be the End -

I love these two books on the Forgotten Road, I hope that there is another book coming to finish out Charles journey to find his Monica and Son and to tell us if Charles is now close to God as he was in his childhood. I will be waiting to hear if another series is coming soon. I love Richard and have all his books in my library.
Your faithful reader and fan.

Route 66 tour

Second in the Broken Road trilogy, this one takes you on a Route 66 road tour. I enjoyed this as he traveled through Illinois, my home state, and then westward. In the telling of Charles James' walk, Evans weaves in life lessons in true Evans style.

It ended too soon!

Really enjoyed both The Broken Road and The Forgotten Road. Now I’m waiting for the next book to continue on Charles walk. So many life lessons that we can all relate to in some way in Charles life!

a disappointment, i expect better from Evans

slow to start, drawn out in the middle and anti climatic where it was intended to be. predictable and very far from Evans roots. overall a disappointment. the walk series was much better, this series seems to be a mop up of ideas left out from that one. evans overall has gone further and further from his LDS roots, he doesnt really seem to be drawing these stories from the same source as some of his earlier works.

Good book

I didn't know this was book two, now I have to find book one and listen to them back to back. I love reading and listening to books by Richard Paul Evans, he is one of the few authors that is able capture and keep my attention, interest and not wanting to put it down until the end. Thank you Mr. Evans.
