1 = Groaner. Probably didn't even finish it.

3 = Recliner. Enjoyed the read.
4 = Page Turner. Hard to put down.
5 = Keeper. A story that stays with me
I did not realize this book is "Christian Fiction" before I downloaded it to my Kindle which is a good thing because I probably would not have chosen it if I had realized it. CF is just not a genre I generally choose.
The story starts out being about divorce and infidelity so I was ready to dislike it. However, the characters drew me in pretty quickly. I decided to stay with it.
It develops in to a wonderful story about sisters and family and discovery. It has humor and tenderness. The Christian aspect is certainly integral to the story but not overplayed.
The author has an easy-going, breezy style of writing that is great when you just want to enjoy the ride and not have to overthink the plot line. All in all, It was a very pleasant afternoon read.
Natalie's long held together their family, or so she thinks; unlike Lindsay, now pregnant, unemployed, burgundy streaked hair eerily announcing to conservative Natalie her sister's weirdness.
When the two siblings get an SOS from home, the mismatched duo heads down Route 66, The Mother Road. Tailing them is a veritable convoy of resentment, anger, love...and a man that's either a stalker or a sweetheart. Can Natalie and Lindsay steer onto that narrow lane of God's perfect plan, or will dead ends, speed bumps, and sink holes keep them stuck forever in overdrive?
In this her latest Abingdon release, Jennifer AlLee somehow manages to combine humor and angst, a TIGHT plot with sleight-of-hand symbolism and irony.
DO NOT miss The Mother Road, y'all, just another example of why Jennifer AlLee is a women's fiction writer in that fast lane!!!!!!
The Mother Road is a wonderful Christian inspirational novel about family, relationships and self-discovery. This is a beautifully written story that captivates the reader from the start. Filled with real life issues such as marriage, infidelity, divorce, pregnancy, family relationships and Alzheimer's Disease; this story will pull at your heartstrings. The author engages the reader with her thoughtful writing style, and the reader goes along for the ride on Natalie and Lindsay's journey down the Mother Road, the famous Route 66.Read more ›
