Publisher's Description

Ashlynne Rothschild grew up with the proverbial silver spoon in her mouth. Smart and sassy, Ashlynne expects to inherit the Park Avenues magazine empire. But her family has other ideas. Feeling she needs to understand the world beyond, they ship her off to Testament, North Carolina, for a little “learning about life."

William Decker grew up in a small town with dreams of big-city success. But when the spoiled Ashlynne falls under his authority, her big city ways aren’t so appealing. Ashlynne’s attempt at “learn normal” ends with a wounded spirit, while William's “reach for the stars” attitude ends with a wounded heart. When these two journalists go head to head, the race is on to see if either will succeed in getting what they really want.

    I love this book! A story of privileged Ashlynne coming to live in rural Testament, NC to learn how to open up and be friends in order have friends rather than always keeping people at a distace as she has since middle school. In this book, the town of Testament is a character in it's own right. You'll learn to appreciate and love the peope who were born and reared there. In the process of learning true morality and ethics, as well as what it feels like to really care about people, she uncovers two huge secrets that threaten to tear the town apart and run her out on the first rail. Everson has hit the nail on the head with her true Southern voice and brings humor without ridicule to these fun characters. Highly Recommend!

    I fell in love and just want more!

    This book by Eva Marie Everson is not just a romance, though that's in there. In Testament you will find historical cover ups, personal struggles with worth, the importance of football in the South, ethical struggles, and a little danger that lands our leading lady in a broom closet.

    There are so many layers to these characters—I feel like we just scratched the surface and then the book was done. I do hope the future holds Another Trip to Testament—we surely haven't traveled every road!

    Eva Marie Everson's Road to Testament isn't just any read—it's an experience of Southern charm. With unforgettable characters, you'll explore the small town of Testament, NC, dipping your toes in the waters of tradition inherent to the South. Novel Rocket and I give it our highest recommendation. It's a 5-star read and going on my Top Ten for 2014 List.

    Eva Marie Everson is one of my fave authors - I've been reading her for many years. The Road to Testament, the latest in this prolific writer's arsenal of great Southern fiction, is one you'll enjoy. Get yourself a glass of ice-cold sweet tea, find a comfortable rocking chair, and sit back to enjoy Ashlynne's journey from up-scale Winter Park, FL - where she is known for her work on Parks & Avenues, a posh local magazine - to Testament, NC, for six months - where she is slated to be a little fish in an even littler pond working as a reporter on the local paper.

    Ashlynne thought the summons to her grandmother's office was to announce that Constance was retiring, Ashlynne's dad was being promoted to Editorial Director, and that she, Ashlynne Rothchild, was being promoted to Editor-in-Chief. To her shock and dismay, she found she was being "banished" to Testament, NC, a tiny town in the mountains, to work for the local paper run by friends of her grandmother - she was to learn the business and perhaps restart a magazine her grands had started years before, as well as to learn some "people" skills.

    With no choice but to obey if she ever wanted her dream job, Ashlynne headed off to NC in her Jaguar filled with designer clothes and shoes to begin her sentence...

    Running afoul of her new boss the first day on the job, Ashlynne cannot begin to imagine what the weeks ahead will bring her. No spoilers here. You'll have to read the book to find out about Ashlynne, Rob, Will, Brianna, Alma - their adventures, mysteries, and even a scandal. Be sure and have plenty of sweet tea on hand - you won't want to leave your rocking chair until you've finished!

    It's funny sometimes how books find their way to me. This book was one that I received from the author because she stole my question during an author chat that we were both attending. I told her since she stole my question, that she owed me her newest book. About a week later, "The Road to Testament" was in my mailbox and I was on my way to reading, and now reviewing, this book.

    Unlike most people her age, Ashlynne has her life all planned out. Working for her family magazine, she knows that as soon as her Grandmother retires, that he father will take over and she will move into his role. A position that she feels is just hers for the taking. When her Grandmother announces her retirement, Ashlynne finds out that her father won't let her take over his role until she moves up to North Carolina to a newspaper owned by friends of her Grandmother's and makes some changes in her life. Assured that six months will pass before she knows it, she heads up to fulfill her obligation to her father. Never having been out of Florida, she isn't quite prepared for what life is like in a small town in North Carolina. As she digs up secrets that have been buried for years, she also digs up feelings for her new boss that she hasn't felt in a long time, if ever. Can she make it through 6 months so that she can get her position back in Florida? Why is her new boss so mean to her and why can't she stop thinking about him? What kind of secrets does she uncover and will this small town ever be the same again after everything is aired? Wait till halftime of the football/basketball game and then go BUY THIS BOOK!

    So as I sit here and think about this book and whether or not I liked it, I'm really perplexed. This book was what I consider a very solid read. There weren't any plot twists or turns that came out of left field. The story line flowed from beginning to end with great character formation and brilliant descriptions of locations. I could picture this book being made into a movie, a great Hallmark Channel movie that you sit down with the family on a Sunday night and watch. At the same time, there wasn't anything that really stood out that made this book exciting. I appreciate the strength of the writing and the way everything fell into place, but there were times I would have liked to see something explode or somebody get gunned down, but that's the "guy" side of me talking.

    Is this a "guy's book"? Not in the sense of piles of suspense and intrigue, but definitely because it is a great book. There's nothing overtly romantic about this book, even though there is romance involved. This is a contemporary novel about second chances and redemption and being able to take a different look at what makes you happy in your world. There isn't very much suspense, but there is a great side story about some uncovered graves and who they might belong to that makes this book one that would be enjoyed by anyone.
