I laughed with them, I cried with them...I cried for them.

And Braden's book is amazing, not only because his writing really draws you in, but because the story and the characters are so very relatable.

I was most excited to read this book because I've suffered from postpartum depression. I was curious to see how Braden Bell would portray this issue, and how this character would eventually learn her self worth in spite of her condition.

While Stephanie was the one character who I most identified with, I found myself connecting to all of the characters on a level I didn't think I would. These people all became my friends. I laughed with them, I cried with them...I cried for them. I felt myself wanting to lift their burdens and then rejoice with them when they overcame their issues.

Simply put, I could NOT put this book down! I'm the mother of two very young little boys who keep me busy, and I would find every extra second I could to read. I just didn't want to put it down until I had finished.

About half way through I found myself becoming a bit sad that the book was coming to an end. There is nothing worse than connecting to characters in a book to just have it end and to be left wondering where their lives took them after. But Braden does a fabulous job of wrapping it up so perfectly where you feel like when you close the book for the last time, you are comfortable leaving them behind knowing that all is well.

This is a book that I've found myself referencing to friends when trying to lift their spirits, and one that I will definitely read again and again.

When I first heard the title "The Road Show", I was expecting said book to be a comedy, because, let's face it, what is there about a road show that isn't a laugh a minute? It wasn't until I saw the cover of the book that I got a good picture of what could be going on backstage and that it wasn't going to be one of those "How the Ward Turns" kind of books (which I enjoy, by the way). I knew this was the author's freshman publication and wasn't exactly sure what I would be facing but wanted to have an open mind since it wasn't so long ago that my freshman effort was published and I could really relate to what this author might be feeling.

My first reaction was one of relief. This guy knows how to hook the reader from paragraph one, how to paint a picture in the mind with deft strokes and how to write about LDS people without sounding as if it was written by someone with no other perspective than that of an LDS person (though, I had to kind of chuckle to myself that there was absolutely no swearing in this book even though a character in particular is involved in much deeper sin than the occasional expletive). (What can I say?--I wasn't raised in Utah. That being said, I don't swear, either.) Sensing that I was about to experience a highly enjoyable ride, I hunkered down and read the book from beginning to end in one sitting.

I don't want to give away too much of this book b/c discovery of who the characters are is what this book is all about (and b/c I'm one of those who reads for many other reasons than "what the book is about" b/c I enjoy learning that as I read and am self-centered enough to assume everyone is like that). Therefore I will limit my comments to saying that 1.

Format: Paperback
The Road Show, by Braden Bell, surprised me and I found that I enjoyed it beyond anticipations. The story focuses on the people within a ward that come together for the annual road show. Each of the five main characters has a need to be healed, whether spiritually, emotionally, or physically. The main character, Scott is wrapped up in the consequences of a life devastated by addiction when he receives the call to direct and write the ward's road show.

With the aid of a talented musician, Scott writes a show where the life of Jesus Christ is portrayed in scenes inspired by well-known paintings from the Savior's life. Jesus moves from one scene, to the next, each scene coming to life when he arrives to minister to the people. The story of the book mirrors this as the reader is taken from the life of one person to the next, each one in need of their Savior's healing power. I came to care about these people, and found myself hoping that they would receive the courage, strength, humility, or love they needed.

This was a great story, well planned and crafted. You can find the full review and interview with the author at [...]

I loved The Road Show. I was drawn into each person's experience and all the main characters were easy for me to relate to. The thing I enjoyed most about this book is the spirit that Bell brings into his writing. In fact, although the book is a shorter read, I took a long time to finish because I savored the last 20 pages. I didn't want to stop reading and feeling that spirit.

This book is a powerful reminder that even though we can feel so inadequate, the Savior loves us as we are, and His atonement is enough to cover all of our sins.

I am a huge reader, always have been. And Braden's book is amazing, not only because his writing really draws you in, but because the story and the characters are so very relatable. It leaves you feeling very uplifted and edified.

Powerful, poignant, and amazingly real to life, Braden Bell wraps up his story perfectly in a mere 128 pages.

This book is worth getting!
