About this item
Life isnot lived in the long, downhill stretches of expressways, but in the obscure, perilous trails and back roads where we stumble and feel our way through thefog of our unknowing. Life is not a run. It is just one step of faith afteranother.
Alan Christoffersenlost his heart when his wife was killed in an accident almost one year ago. Helost his trust when his business partner stole his advertising business. Helost his home when the bank took his house. So Alan decided to leave hispainful memories behind and walk from Seattle to the farthest point on the map, Key West, but in St. Louis, he is forced to stop.
Because hissevere vertigo is diagnosed as the side effect of a brain tumor, Alan must goto Los Angeles for treatment. He is surrounded by those who care most for him: his father, who is happy to have Alan back in his childhood home; Falene, whohas been by his side through his most difficult times; and Nicole, who helpedhim recover from a mugging in Spokane. One by one, Alan alienates them all, andhe resumes his journey in angry loneliness. The people he meets as he walks thedusty southern back roads have lessons to teach Alan about accepting love. He just has to have faith that life can be worth living againand that the womanhe rejected will be willing to forgive him.
