For a mother, life comes down to a series of choices. To hold on... To let go.. To forget... To forgive... Which road will you take? Night Road For eighteen years, Jude Farraday has put her children's needs above her own, and it showsher twins, Mia and Zachare bright and happy teenagers. When Lexi Baill moves into their small, close knit community, no one is more welcoming than Jude. Lexi, a former foster child with a dark past, quickly becomes Mia's best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable. Jude does everything to keep her kids on track for college and out of harm's way. It has always been easy-- until senior year of high school. Suddenly she is at a loss. Nothing feels safe anymore; every time her kids leave the house, she worries about them. On a hot summer's night her worst fears come true. One decision will change the course of their lives. In the blink of an eye, the Farraday family will be torn apart and Lexi will lose everything. In the years that follow, each must face the consequences of that single night and find a way to forget...or the courage to forgive. Vivid, universal, and emotionally complex, NIGHT ROAD raises profound questions about motherhood, identity, love, and forgiveness. It is a luminous, heartbreaking novel that captures both the exquisite pain of loss and the stunning power of hope. This is Kristin Hannah at her very best, telling an unforgettable story about the longing for family, the resilience of the human heart, and the courage it takes to forgive the people we love.

Only my favorite books, the ones that alter my life and make me feel deeply, are allowed to live on my book shelf along with my TBR and this book, my friends, has earned its place on the shelf. Kristen Hannah has nailed it again and there are no words to tell you how much this book made me feel and fall in love with the characters. Truly great. 💕🙏

I think I have a new favorite author to add to the list. What an incredible book that pulled me in from the beginning. It was so emotional and I really feel the way she told the story from different view points heightened the emotion. I couldn‘t quite figure out how I should feel because each view point made sense. Love love love and highly recommend!

Putting in the long haul tonight and trying to finish this one to make two books complete this #24in48. I‘m enjoying this but I hate-hate-Jude. I‘m over halfway and every time they mention her I want to throw myself out a window which is unfortunate since she is a main character. Certainly a redemption is coming but... hate it not too strong of a word. She sucks. At about 6.5 hours, my timekeeping is lacking.

Another favorite it Kristin Hannah‘s. The storyline had a mix of style - Jodi Picoult & Nicholas Sparks - but it was an easy read. The characters were well developed and the story made you feel all different emotions. Would definitely recommend if you‘re looking for a heartfelt novel.

This was a quick and enjoyable read, for me a 3 stars out of 5. Likeable characters but so much grief and it all felt a little too easily wrapped up at the end - especially with regards to the main character who was not as well written in terms of character development compared to some of the other characters in the book. Now I need something cheerful to read !!!

About a third of the way through, I had to stop reading for a few days because I didn't want anything to happen to anyone. Once the tragedy struck, I was saddened by how much the mom changed. But I thought it accurately portrayed one way a person could react to loss and guilt. My heart ached and I was crying over the emotions it brought up. It was a story of a mother's love, and how even the nicest person can change during a tragedy.

ebsandherreads OMG!!! I loved this book, it wrecked me but I loved it... Many, many tears were shed while reading this book 11mo
Crazeedi I've not heard of this one, the description breaks my heart, I'll have to be in right frame of mind to read 11mo

Mini review: I devoured this 4 star read in less than 24 hours. Oh my God. The emotional journey that Hannah took me on was one of phenomenal proportions.

Her characters are beautifully woven together and weaved into the plot line at just the right times, making the reader fall in love with each and every one of them, good or bad.

I can't wait to dive into another book by this incredible author. Definitely recommend this one!

This book is a very sad and emotional read but an amazing story. The last part of the book had me in tears. I have never cried so hard as when I was reading this book. Hannah being able to evoke such emotions is a sign of her excellent writing skills. If you need a good cry then read this book. Do not read if you are prone to depression. Thanks to @Reecaspieces for the #buddyread. I enjoyed reading this with her!

Reecaspieces Thank you so much! This was such fun! Even if a sad read....I enjoyed it immensely! 13mo

Reecaspieces @EadieB I will be honest. I almost stopped during several spots. But I forgot many parts so I‘m glad I read it again. Probably won‘t do that again lol 13mo
EadieB @Reecaspieces Looking back over the story, I really liked the book and Hannah being able to evoke so many tears from me tells me what a good writer she is but it is a hard book to read! 13mo

EadieB @Reecaspieces I can‘t believe Lexi is in prison and had a baby and gave her to Zach. Jude is being such a bitch and she needs to grow up! I hope the baby helps to solve her problem. This book is so sad! 13mo
Reecaspieces @EadieB I agree! Jude is a disaster. Now, in her defense. She is hurting BEYOND BELIEV. I have no idea how I would react. I do know I would think twice about sending an18 year old to prison. And a grandchild....MY WORD! 13mo

I‘m not generally a fan of this type of book but I did get caught up in the drama and sadness of this one. It‘s a tearjerker so be prepared! I definitely liked this better than Firefly Lane. Jude was a difficult character to like, but there‘s plenty to consider here and think about. More could have been done to explore the inequality of justice between the haves and have nots but this book is all about grief, blame, and forgiveness.

I didn't expect to finish this so fast but I tore through it. While you see what's coming a mile away, you're still left traumatized by what happens in this book. The main character, Jude, is very selfish and even with her redemptive actions towards the end, I felt polarizing anger at her for most of this read. I favored Lexi and rooted for her happiness. The ending felt a smidge forced. Not my favorite Kristin Hannah but still a solid read.

"Why was it that pebbles looked like boulders until they were in your rearview mirror?"

This is a common struggle with me. With two toddlers and a full time job, I've had to learn that many times, I think something is a boulder and it's really a pebble that I need to let go. I've gotten better at it but I still have a long way to go not to have a panic attack when my house is in shambles!
