There is only one word to describe this book, that would be AMAZING! The story line and the characters and so realist and very well developed. This book is about a young girl who has been searching for a forever family, while going through life in the foster system. When she is freshman in high school she finally finds a home with a great aunt and from there she find her best friend. But in their senior year every thing changes. The event in this book that changes everything is something that I never saw coming. I highly recommend this book and the author. I have also read " Winter Garden" and " Thing we do for love" and they were also amazing.

I discovered Kristin Hannah in 2011 and she is now one of my favorite authors. Night Road is a true-to-life novel with realistic characters and a engaging plot. I highly recommend it!

Night Road by Kristin Hannah

Review by Moirae the fates book reviews.

Jude Farraday is a happily married, stay-at-home mom who puts everyone’s needs above her own. Her twins, Mia and Zach, are bright and happy teenagers. When Lexi Baill enters their lives, no one is more supportive than Jude. A former foster child with a dark past, Lexi quickly becomes Mia’s best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable. But senior year of high school brings unexpected dangers and one night, Jude’s worst fears are confirmed: there is an accident. In an instant, her idyllic life is shattered and her close-knit community is torn apart. People�"and Jude�"demand justice, and when the finger of blame is pointed, it lands solely on eighteen-year-old Lexi Baill. In a heartbeat, their love for each other will be shattered, the family broken. Lexi gives up everything that matters to her�"the boy she loves, her place in the family, the best friend she ever had�"while Jude loses even more.
When Lexi returns, older and wiser, she demands a reckoning. Long buried feelings will rise again, and Jude will finally have to face the woman she has become. She must decide whether to remain broken or try to forgive both Lexi…and herself.
Night Road is a vivid, emotionally complex novel that raises profound questions about motherhood, loss, identity, and forgiveness. It is an exquisite, heartbreaking novel that speaks to women everywhere about the things that matter most. (Synopsis provided by goodreads)
This is the first book by Hannah. I really enjoyed it. Her writing was wonderful. The book will make you laugh and cry. It’s filled with emotions and is defiantly a book for all women and girls to read.
I found it hard to put down and read the book in a few hours. After reading it, I found myself sitting quietly and going over the whole book in detail over and over. It is such a moving book, it will stay with you long after you have finished it.
The relationships in the book felt real and the characters were true to themselves. I never felt like the author was trying to make something happen that shouldn’t have. The dialogue was really good.
After reading this book, I will be looking for more books by this author I highly recommend this book to all women.
Overall rating ***** 5 out of 5 stars

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Hannah follows up Winter Garden with a strained story of friendship, social pressures, love, and forgiveness. After a string of foster homes and the death of her heroin-addict mother, Lexi Baill is taken in by a newly discovered great-aunt who lives a spartan life near Seattle. Despite financial problems, the two are glad to have found each other, and though Lexi resolves to stay safely on the periphery at her new high school, she soon meets Mia, unhappy and awkward despite a solid family life, a loving twin brother, Zach, and a closetful of clothes. The friendship flourishes, and Mia's mother, Jude, relieved and pleased for her daughter, draws Lexi into the family circle. But trouble begins in senior year with a slowly growing attraction between Zach and Lexi, who take great pains to make Mia comfortable with the change in the dynamics. This familiar story takes an unfortunate turn deep into after-school-special territory when Lexi, Mia, and Zach collectively make a bad decision that results in a tragedy with extreme repercussions. Even readers who like their melodrama thick will have problems as Hannah pushes credibility to the breaking point, and more than once. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
"Review" by , "Hannah (Winter Garden), long a favorite in women's fiction, has written a novel that should propel her onto the book club fiction circuit.... fans will love this rich, multilayered reading experience, and it's an easy recommendation for book clubs."

"Synopsis" by ,

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 childrens needs above her own, and it shows—her twins, Mia and Zach—are 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 Mias 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 harms 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 summers 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.
