Product Description

Alan Christoffersen, a once-successful advertising executive, wakes one morning to find himself injured, alone, and confined to a hospital bed in Spokane, Washington. Sixteen days earlier, reeling from the sudden loss of his wife, his home, and his business, Alan left everything he knew behind and set off on an extraordinary cross-country journey. Carrying only a backpack, he planned to walk to Key West, the farthest destination on his map. But a vicious roadside stabbing has interrupted Alan's trek and robbed him of his one source of solace: the ability to walk.

Homeless and facing months of difficult recovery, Alan has nowhere to turn-until a mysterious woman enters his life and invites him into her home. Generous and kind, Angel seems almost too good to be true, but all is not as it appears. Alan soon realizes that before he can return to his own journey, he must first help Angel with hers.

Publisher's Description

Alan Christoffersen, a once-successful advertising executive, wakes one morning to find himself injured, alone, and confined to a hospital bed in Spokane, Washington. Sixteen days earlier, reeling from the sudden loss of his wife, his home, and his business, Alan left everything he knew behind and set off on an extraordinary cross-country journey. Carrying only a backpack, he planned to walk to Key West, the farthest destination on his map. But a vicious roadside stabbing has interrupted Alan’s trek and robbed him of his one source of solace: the ability to walk.

Homeless and facing months of difficult recovery, Alan has nowhere to turn—until a mysterious woman enters his life and invites him into her home. Generous and kind, Angel seems almost too good to be true, but all is not as it appears. Alan soon realizes that before he can return to his own journey, he must first help Angel with hers.

From one of America’s most beloved and bestselling storytellers comes an astonishing tale of life and death, love and second chances, and why sometimes the best way to heal your own suffering is by helping to heal someone else’s.

Inspiring, moving, and full of wisdom, Miles to Go picks up where the bestseller The Walk left off, continuing the unforgettable series about one man’s unrelenting search for hope.

He is the winner of the American Mothers Book Award, two first place Storytelling World Awards for his children’s books, and the Romantic Times Best Women’s Novel of the Year Award.

Publisher's Weekly

After Alan Christoffersen lost the life he made in Seattle (his wife, home, and career), he went on a walk. With this simple premise, Evans launched this life-affirming series, which has now sold over half a million copies. As the protagonist also reveals in Miles to Go, the intended destination, Key West, was chosen for being "simply the furthest point on the map" from his starting point. The second book begins with Christoffersen facing a major hurdle--after he is robbed and stabbed by several teenagers, he must learn how to walk again. Ultimately, a near-stranger takes him in until he heals. Evans has a gift for con-veying emotion through fictional dialogue. Besides being a story of hope and redemption, Miles to Go is a stand-alone page turner which will certainly hook many people on Evans' series. (April) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    This is a great series. The only negative I have to say is that it is difficult to wait a year for the next book in this series. But well worth the wait.

    I'm not sure what it is about Richard Paul Evans' books that makes them so compelling. There is action, but I wouldn't call them action packed. There is romance, but I wouldn't classify them as typical romantic stories. His books always make me think and make me feel -- and I don't even realize how much until after I've finished the story.

    Miles to Go, "the second journal of THE WALK series," fits into this same category. Alan Christoffersen picks up right where he left off at the end of The Walk -- in the hospital recovering from his near-deadly attack, resulting in a months-long detour from his original plan. During this unexpected down time, though, his life takes on new meaning through a mutually beneficial relationship with his very own Angel. He also has the chance to reconnect with important people from his past. When he is able to start back on his cross-country trek, he meets Kailamai -- once again someone he helps as she brings new enjoyment to his life. Without being "preachy" or "teachy," Richard reminds his readers of important life lessons through Alan's relationships.

    So I wind down to the end of the book -- the very last entry before the epilogue -- feeling quiet and introspective -- and Evans throws in a big-time cliffhanger! And I have to wait until sometime next year to get the answers?!?!?
