"The Walk" by Richard Paul Evans

"The Walk" is the first book in a series of at least 5 books that Richard Paul Evan has written.  I say at least 5 because the fifth one comes out next month and I'm not sure if it is the last one or not.  Basically, a man by the name of Alan loses almost everything in his life when his wife is bucked off of a horse and dies and as he is at his wife's bedside for five weeks, his business partner steals the company out from under his nose.  When Alan "comes to", his home is being sold, his cars are being repossessed and he is left with no family and no worldly assets.  So he begins to walk from one end of the country to the other.  This is a story of all that happens to him as he makes that journey.  It is intriguing and genuinely inspiring.  I highly recommend this book and series to anyone, including older teens and young adults.

One quote I love from the series says: 

“We can spend our days bemoaning our losses, or we can grow from them. Ultimately the choice is ours. We can be victims of circumstance or masters of our own fate, but make no mistake, we cannot be both. The Walk - Epilogue Page 288” ― Richard Paul Evans
