In this book, it‘s not #londoncalling to the main characters; it‘s 1950s Australia, where in many cases, #thestreetshavenoname and may be a #roadtonowhere #wanderingjune

Melissa_J Well played! 4mo

“Ahead in the dark she noticed a figure illuminated by the sodium-yellow street lights: a bag lady pushing a rusty pram piled with clothes, cardboard, plastic bags- a perennial traveler from here to nowhere.”

There is no #RoadToNowhere when #LondonCalling

In other words, if its set in London, it automatically goes onto my TBR. 😀

#DreadlockHoliday

My weird brain thought, it must be dreadful to encounter a dead body in a locked room while on holiday. Unless you are Hercules Poirot, of course.

BarbaraBB I thought at first you were using it for #roadtonowhere 😉 4mo

Hopefully it‘s not a #RoadtoNowhere for this Irish immigrant, abolitionist, and 2 slaves in this novel of 19th century America.

Ever seen the movie Little Monsters, with Fred Savage and Howie Mandel? I always think of that movie when I hear #RoadToNowhere, it played over the climatic chase scene.

Soubhiville Yes! This was a favorite of mine! Along with Drop Dead Fred! 4mo

A bit of a stretch but the Burma Railway felt like the road to nowhere while the POWs were building it in WW2. And it says road in the title - so that‘s close enough 😋

I loved this book. I know a number of people disliked the jumps into present and past but I needed those jumps to give my head some space from the POW experience! So many memorable scenes in this, some harrowing, some filled with love.

andrew61 Wonderful choice, and i guess the scene on the bridge years later could fit that category as well. 4mo
ReadingEnvy I preferred the love story 🤷‍♂️ 4mo
Centique @ReadingEnvy That was my favourite part too, although I really liked the war story as well 4mo

Centique @andrew61 I‘m trying to remember the bridge now - is that the fire scene? That‘s the scene that is stuck in my head. 4mo
andrew61 @Centique its a while since i read it but it is when he is crossing a bridge and sees his old lover with two children but doesn't speak to her. If im remembeing right im sure i heard the author say he had heard a similar story about a man in Croatia who fails to speak fearing the children are the womans and thinking she has moved on. Apologies if i remembering incorrectly. 4mo
Centique @andrew61 oh yes! That‘s right. Such a journey he has been on - almost full circle in figuring out his own heart. 4mo
Cinfhen I wanted to love this book but I ended up bailing very early on. I don‘t think I was in the right mood at the time. Maybe I should try again?!? 4mo
BarbaraBB I am happy with your recommendation. I have this book on my shelves but heard so many mixed things about it that I never dared trying it. 4mo
Centique @Cinfhen I think someday you might like it. When you feel like you don‘t mind quite dramatic shifts between a harsh war story and a lighter love story. 🤞🤞🤞 4mo
Centique @BarbaraBB I hope you like it! 🤞🤞 4mo
Freespirit For me a brilliant book! The story has stayed with me❤️ 4mo

#WanderingJune 🚘
When I hear #RoadToNowhere I think of quirky road trips which makes me think of this book I read & was on a book tour for in 2017. About a road trip where 72-year-old Johnny Ribkins drives all over Florida with his niece Eloise digging up money he buried to pay off his mobster boss & teaching her about the Ribkins family & their unique gifts. Good fun & since it's been a year since I used it for a prompt, I can't resist it. 😆

BarbaraBB Great collage once again 😍 4mo
DebinHawaii @BarbaraBB Thank you! 🤗I have missed doing collages for challenges! 4mo
Reggie I really liked this book!😁 4mo
Cinfhen I‘ve stacked this book because of an @Reggie review!!! Glad to hear you loved the book too, Deb 🥳 4mo
DebinHawaii @Reggie @Cinfhen Yes, I reviewed it for a book tour when it came out a couple of years ago & I still think of it fondly. It's quirky & endearing & I'd love it if she wrote more involving the Ribkins family. 🤗📚 4mo
