Editorial Reviews

Review

"Small Town Roads is kind, gentle, poetic, but grippingly bittersweet in the meeting and meshing of the times and values of two distinctly different -- but so much the same -- women in a small American town. L.B. Johnson is a writer to watch for tomorrow, but she is also someone to enjoy today". 
-- John L. Moore 
Award-winning novelist and journalist, author of The Breaking of Ezra Riley and other novels. 
----------
"In the tradition of Kent Haruf's bestselling Plainsong, L.B. Johnson has written a lyrical, meditative story that acknowledges the dangers and comforts of our world. Small Town Roads is a loving story about an old, slow place where the terrible loneliness of grief eases because ordinary people decide to be community." 
-- Katie Andraski  - Author of The River Caught Sunlight
----------
"L.B. Johnson is a wonderful writer, like good scotch on a winter night."
--Michael Bane - Producer, Writer, Actor
----------
"Heart-warming and endearing, this read brings the reality of small town life and the meaning of community, life-long friendships, and the healing of a grieving soul to readers. Refreshing and uplifting, L.B. Johnson has eloquently portrayed the different seasons and paths that life takes us on. Through a series of journal entries by Rachel as one of the main characters and a beautifully written narrative, the author sheds light on renewed hope in God's purpose and will, despite the past and current circumstances."
--Kingdom Expansion Ministries
---------
"You can take the girl out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the girl."  We've all heard this, which is why it's refreshing to find a story that shows the opposite.
Rachel graduated with a criminal science degree in Chicago and is ready for police work. But a recent break-up, plus lingering heartbreak over her dead parents, causes her to re-evaluate everything -- including the city she calls home.  An NPR Must Read for our 2017 Spring Read series. - NPR WNIJ/WNIU
---------
"Small Town Roads by LB Johnson is an eloquent Christian novel portraying the introspection of a community. This literary work is a lovely depiction of the characters' thoughts and motivations, although there is no action and the story can seem to move slowly. The author has a wonderful grasp of the English language, and her words flow together smoothly, creating a beautifully formed sermon. Rachel's and Evelyn's reminiscences and musings about life and faith are almost poetic. Despite their ages and generations, each of the characters portrayed displays their personal and spiritual growth, providing a thought-provoking and insightful story. It was encouraging to see Rachel's faith progress and blossom. This is an inspirational novel that will please those who enjoy reading meaningful Christian-based, faith-inspired books.  Five Stars."
