Publisher's Description

Within the course of a week, Natalie is dumped by her husband, receives an urgent call home from her father, and discovers her estranged sister is pregnant.
A road trip on Route 66 may not help, but it sure couldn't hurt. Or so Natalie thinks, until Lindsay's boyfriend starts stalking them. Will their trip down the Mother Road bring the two sisters closer together or turn out to be the biggest wrong turn yet?

"Relationships are the backbone of The Mother Road, and AlLee gives us real ones, conflicted and complicated. I alternated between cheering Natalie and wanting to smack her upside the head. Not that her younger sister is perfect. Not by a long shot. But I fell in love with these characters and wished the road trip hadn't ended so soon. Novel Rocket and I give it a very high recommendation. It's a must-read." Ane Mulligan, Sr. Editor, Novel Rocket
"With a compelling, fresh voice, Jennifer AlLee blends Americana with the trials of a modern-day family. The Mother Road's a simply smashing story. Not to be missed!" --Patti Lacy, author of Reclaiming Lily 
"I felt like I was right there in the car with estranged sisters Natalie and Lindsay as they motored down The Mother Road toward a future free from heartache, loneliness, and fear. You don't want to miss this fun story that will tweak your every emotion (and a few you might have forgotten about)! I'm making space on my 'keepers shelf' for this one!" --Loree Lough, best-selling author of more than 80 award-winning books, including reader favorite From Ashes to Honor

    This review was written for The Mother Road - eBook.
    I honestly had no idea what I would think of this book, but the author immediately got my attention with the terms writer and divorce. Imagine a Christian romance novelist and marriage author/speaker who is blindsided with her husband's affair and divorce. Being a Christian divorcee myself, this instantly struck a nerve with me. And although my ex never cheated on me, the whole issue of

    Christians getting divorced struck a nerve with me.

    I absolutely loved the characters Natalie, Lindsay, and Adam. I fell in love with Adam as I wondered if men like him existed. And I could sympathize with Natalie as she tried to sort herself out. And poor Lindsay. She seemed so helpless but ended up being so strong.

    The part about Alzheimers intrigued me as well due to our family history. My heart broke every timne Meredith forgot yet another part of her life. It was sometimes hard to read, and I can only hope and pray this never happens to someone I love. But if it does, may I react as God would have me.

    I was not really too excited about traveling Route 66. I have been on parts of that road, but it did not capture my attention. I was more intrigued with how God worked on the sisters during their road trip. Infact, it was nice yet again to read a book that allowed God to break through its pages without being preachy.

    While this is not a deep book--definitely a nice, light read--I would love to see the author write a sequel so we can see how the characters go on to accomplish their individual struggles.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are 100 percent mine, and I was not financially compensated.

    Loved this book!!! Although it dealt with some serious, tough issues, the tone was light, breezy, and thoroughly enjoyable. It held my interest from start to finish. I can't say that about many books these days. The journey along route 66 was tons of fun, and I loved the sassy first person narrator. This one is a keeper!

    I am a huge judge by the cover person, I know I shouldn't be but I go author first , then cover and then blurb. I didn't know the author but the cover screamed road trip to me as I guess if I had been American, then the title would have been an obvious as apparently Route 66 in America is also known as The Mother Road.

    In Jennifer Allee's book , we meet Natalie who has spent her whole life writing books about relationships and marriage -only now eighteen years to discover her husband has had an affair , and wants a divorce. The worst thing is that the woman is pregnant with his baby , the one thing in the world that Natalie could never give Tony. With a phone call to her dad, he talks Natalie in returning home but with one catch, to pick up her sister on the way. Natalie and Lindsey haven't spoke n in five years , so when Natalie turns up on Lindsey's doorstep and Lindsey is pregnant and with a black eye, Natalie is quick to judge. The pair then against both their better judgements head out on a road trip filled with tragedies, triumphs, laughter and tears and all this along The Mother Road of the States - Route 66.

    A great novel that once you start reading you will not be able to put down and beware the trip along the Mother Road will be a bumpy and emotional journey.

    Unlike her messed-up baby sister Lindsay, marriage writer/speaker Natalie has it all...until the day her husband blows all eighteen wheels on her fame and fortune semi and announces he's filing for the big D.

    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!!!!!!
