I had a hard time putting this book down. It’s one of those stories that really drew me in and made me forget that it’s a fictional tale. The journey these characters embark on – the spiritual one, especially – kept me turning the pages as fast as I could read. By the end, I found myself wishing I was on the road trip with them. 🙂
Mallory and Connor are both struggling with real fears. They’re not sure their love can withstand the obstacles in their way. They’re hurt and scared. A quirky road trip throws them together, along with an eleven-year-old foster child who is desperate to belong. God meets these three on the road with some unexpected blessings in various forms.
I couldn’t wait to see where their travels were going to take them next. I couldn’t wait to see if love and courage would indeed save their marriage. This contemporary story is full of heart and a deep call for faith in God during the unknown. It doesn’t hide the hardships. Instead, it points us to our Hope.

About the Book
These no-longer-newlyweds want out of this road trip–and their marriage. Too bad they can’t find the off-ramp.
Weeks away from their one-year anniversary, Mallory and Connor Duncan can’t even agree on how to end their marriage. But when a last-minute crisis lands them on a three-thousand-mile road trip together, Mallory wonders if their story may not be over after all.
The trip begins to unravel before the key is even in the ignition, and an at-risk, trouble-seeking missile of an eleven-year-old is unexpectedly launched into their travel plans. Close quarters get even tighter, and the couple believes this whole experience will spell disaster.
But as new challenges pop up around each bend, Mallory and Connor are surprised by the strengths they see in one another–and how they complement each other. Their first year of marriage hasn’t been the arm-in-arm togetherness they expected . . . but can they find a new beginning when the road ends?
