Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Richard Paul Evans, the dramatic conclusion in the riveting Broken Road trilogy - a powerful redemption story about finding happiness on a pilgrimage across iconic Route 66.

Chicago celebrity and pitchman Charles James is supposed to be dead. Everyone believes he was killed in a fiery plane crash, a flight he narrowly missed. But thanks to that remarkable twist of fate, he’s very much alive and ready for a second chance at life and love. Escaping death has brought Charles some clarity: the money, the fame, the expensive cars; none of it brought him true joy or peace. The last time he was truly happy was when he was married to his ex-wife, Monica, before their relationship was destroyed by his ambition and greed, which involved bilking people out of thousands of dollars through pyramid schemes.

In the exciting and provocative series that began with The Broken Road and The Forgotten Road, Charles is still on his pilgrimage across the iconic Route 66 in The Road Home. He intends to finish his trek from Amarillo to Santa Monica, despite learning his ex-wife is now engaged. With the initial reason for his trip in jeopardy, he still has lessons to learn along the way before he discovers - and arrives at - his true destination.

Only Richard could have pulled this off!!!

Only Richard Paul Evan's could have pulled this off. in the words of Charles James "Sometimes you have to lose your life in order to find it." Brilliant writing. It is bitter sweet that I have come to the end of this journey.

Great Book From A Great Series

This series of books is really great. It’s the story of a boy from an abusive father who grows, learns through the good and the bad, and eventually chooses to be humble enough to allow those lessons learned to improve his life. Along the way, in true Richard-Paul-Evans style, the reader picks up little golden nuggets of wisdom that can be applied in real life to help the reader learn his/her own lessons in real life - if they are humble and meek enough to really listen and accept those lessons.

Any of RPE’s books can stand alone and be beneficial reading, but this series should really be read through in entirety. It’s worth it.

I would recommend these books (The Broken Road, The Forgotten Road, The Road Home) for ages 15+ in order for the reader to appreciate the intricate lessons.

Superb!

Loved the whole series beginning to end. And I hated to see it end!! I "binge listened" and finished all three in 10 days. I loved Richard's narration which made the story all the more genuine. Gave me many pearls of wisdom to ponder. Highly recommend!

One of the best books I’ve ever read and listened to

This book has definitely changed my life and my attitude towards the life I have left. And absolutely excellent read and even better and excellent listen as well. All three books in this trilogy are more than worth your time. They are very easy to read and listen to and the lessons in them are pure gold.
