I enjoyed this read from cover to cover and couldn't put it down. The characters are real and engaging and frustrating! The inability for Jude to put aside her grief and support her family who needed her made me want to shake her ;while the strength of Lexi made me proud and brought tears more than once throughout the story. Night Road is more than a story of one family's journey: it is a story of self reflection as the reader is pushed to examine their own strengths and weaknesses and consider how one might handle a similar situation should tragedy of this magnitude occur. Would I be like Jude, Lexi, Miles, Zach or Eve? .The author does a fantastic job at depicting motherhood and associated emotions, hopes, dreams, excitement, anticipation, pride, worry, and love. I didn't want the story to end, but when it did, it was the right ending. Overall a great read!
