About this item

"Life is not 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 the fog of our unknowing. Life is not a run. It is just one step of faith after another."
Alan Christoffersen lost his heart when his wife was killed in an accident almost one year ago. He lost his trust when his business partner stole his advertising business. He lost his home when the bank took his house. So Alan decided to leave his painful 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 his severe vertigo is diagnosed as the side effect of a brain tumor, Alan must go to 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, who has been by his side through his most difficult times; and Nicole, who helped him recover from a mugging in Spokane. One by one, Alan alienates them all, and he resumes his journey in angry loneliness. The people he meets as he walks the dusty southern back roads have lessons to teach Alan about accepting love. He just has to have faith that life can be worth living again--and that the woman he rejected will be willing to forgive him.

Richard Paul Evans has tugged at the heart again with “A Step of Faith”, the latest installment of his amazing “The Walk” series. This time we find Alan Christoffersen in the midst of another personal crisis that threatens his journey across the country to Key West. Alan is joined by those he needs most but circumstances and emotions get in the way and he eventually returns alone to continue his Walk. Alan heads from St. Louis through the deep South tasting the culture and amazing food along the way. He meets some very interesting people including an encounter with a “religion” he never expected. All of them have Alan pondering what he really needs and wants most. When Alan comes to the realization about what to do, he hits another speed bump in his path. Like many of Richard Paul Evans fans I could not wait for this book to come out. I read it quickly and could not put it down. Mr. Evans is an incredible storyteller and this book is the best one of this series yet! Now begins the agonizing wait for the final part of this incredible adventure due out next year. “The Walk” series puts readers through an emotional wringer and we are better for the ride. It started out with “The Walk” and now after many “Miles to Go” down “The Road to Grace” take “A Step of Faith” and join the journey. Life’s road will never look the same.
