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.

This one tugged at every heart string. As a mother, some parts were a challenge to get through, but worth the struggle to reach the ending!

I've already read Night Road and it's been on my wish list to own. I have books 1-5 of Miss Peregrine's but stopped reading after A Map of Days because I knew book 5 ended in a cliffhanger

Talk about depressing…great writing, KH is wonderful. But this is a very depressing story. Even with a semi happy ending, it‘s depressing as hell. Book #5 in 2022.

Ok ~ 3rd book that I have read by this author in 3 days.... Are all of her books so gloomy? As much as I like her stories/writing, I‘m tired of characters with depression, alcoholism & drug problems ~ need something a little more uplifting 😉

🌟 🌟 🌟 Full Review: https://suspensebookreviews.home.blog/2021/02/05/night-road-by-kristin-hannah/

I wanted to love this book as much as I loved 'The Nightingale' yet I couldn't. I found so much of this book to be over-the-top and the classifications of rich vs poor to be equally overwhelming. The characters seemed unrealistic and I HATED Jude (the mother). The husband and Aunt were my favorite and most relatable characters.

Reagan Jude was the worst and she never improved. Glad I‘m not the only one. She was an awful unsympathetic character. 2y
AlisBookNookCorner @Reagan I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt this way too. This book had such good reviews and so much hype. I just couldn't get past Jude and how the whole book seemed to revolve her. She was awful, I agree 100%. 2y

Yes! Yes! Yes! This is exactly the novel I need right now. Hannah won me over with "The Nightingale" and has proven within just the first chapter that she has a talent with words. The story and writing are captivating ?

@TheAromaofBooks I was cutting it close this month (again) BUT I finished the tagged book which was square 20 for my #bookspin #doublebookspin This was a really good book. It was a sweet story. Like a gentler and tamer version of The Great Alone. It was any easy read. I really liked Lexi's character. As a former lawyer, Hannah does a good job describing prison settings. I've been working in a prison for 10 years and one thing that will cause me⬇️

FelinesAndFelonies (cont) to take a star away is an inaccurate description of prisons or jails or trial procedures. But she nailed it and it was believable. Though having the same cell mate for 5 years is unlikely. Hannah is one of my favorite authors. The first book of hers I read was The Great Alone and I am iffy about her early work because it doesn't always measure up. This was a solid book and I am glad my #bookspin made me get it off my TBR pile. 2y

When I picked this book up earlier this week I was like alright don't disappoint me.
This book gave me all the feels.
Alexa was a daughter to someone who was a drug addict and lived in and out of foster care as a child. Moved to a town after her mother over dosed and knew no one.
She met Mia on the first day of freshman year and became best friends. Mia twin sister to Zach.
This books main plot teaches you forgiveness.

I liked this, but didn‘t love it as much as The Great Alone or Nightingale.

It did make me tear up a couple of times, so clearly had some impact, but there were a number of jumps in time that gave a distance to the narrative and meant that we didn‘t get a feel for the characters.

This is my #bookspin for September.

TrishB I loved Nightingale and Firefly Lane, but not really been into any others yet. 2y

Aww man, another of hers that gave me all the feels! So many emotions in this, and it went so many places I hadn't expected. Going to need to get this for my growing Hannah collection, I think.
It's like this book broke my heart in multiple ways and pieced it back together by the end

I have finally had a month where I have managed more than one book! I have been in a huge #whatshappeningtotheworld slump. Night Road was my favorite. The Mist was a reread, and helped get me out of the slump- SK is good at that! Krista‘s Escape was a disappointing novella that ends on a cliffhanger- don‘t care to know where that story goes! Hoping that August is even better. Also completed the #bookspin for July! (Year of Wonders)

I haven‘t been able to get through many books since this Covid stuff started, and depression is kicking my ass, but I managed to get through this one, which is a miracle in itself. Plus I did it in one sitting. I could relate so much to the mother in this book - loved every page. Kristin Hannah has a gift! Normally a four star, but given it‘s the first book I‘ve gotten through in a while I‘m giving it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Finished up my June #bookspin

I really wanted to love this but I wasn‘t a fan of the several time jumps the novel made. Made the book feel more sectioned/like separate stories that just had a common thread. I liked the characters and the writing style. So maybe I‘ll try another of this author but this book just didn‘t do it for me

This is also my #redwhiteorbluetypeoncover for #booked2020

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 4y

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!
