Overview

Alan Christoffersen faces a life-changing crisis on his journey to grace in Richard Paul Evans’s New York Times bestseller—the fourth book in the Walk series.

Almost one year ago, Alan Christoffersen found himself reeling from the loss of everything he held dear—his wife, who was killed in a terrible accident; his business, which a partner stole from him; and his home, which the bank took away. So he decided to leave it all behind and walk from Seattle to the farthest point on the map, Key West. But as he reaches St. Louis, an obstacle forces him to stop in his tracks.

Alan must go to Los Angeles for treatment of a brain tumor. Once there, he finds himself surrounded by loving friends and family, including his father, who is happy to have Alan back in his childhood home; Falene, who has been by his side through difficult times; and Nicole, who helped him recover from a mugging. But Alan alienates them all and resumes his journey in angry loneliness. The people he meets as he walks the 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.

Full of wisdom, heart, and hope, A Step of Faith will keep you turning the pages as you make the incredible journey alongside Alan and his unforgettable companions.

    Didn't come close to first three book in series

    Having waited in anticipation for this sequel, I was disappointed. It felt like Mr. Evans was tired of the journey and just wanted it over. The first half of the journey took three books whereas the second half (with the exception of Florida) was rushed into one). After I finished, I found myself thinking, "Is that all there is?"

    Richard Paul Evans has tugged at the heart again with ¿A Step of

    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.

    I read this book in a day and I am a slow reader. I ended up skipping through paragraphs that just talked about what he was eating or how his phone was dead and he had to plug it in. I don't care if he puts ketchup on his plate and then eats it. This book was filled with trivial details that felt like it was just to take up space. Books 1 and 2 were so good, had so much substance and really had an impact on me but 3 and 4 have been big disappointments. I feel like Richard Paul Evans is selling out, rushing the publication of this series. There weren't any interesting characters in book 4 at all, nothing memorable. The story has turned predictable as well, of course his father has a heart attack as soon as he gets to Florida. The books where he met interesting people along the way and learned from them were far more interesting. It's a shame. The characters that he did meet in book 4 made no sense and seemed forced or as though RPE was taking current events and putting them into his story. I'm sure I will still read book 5 but I'm certainly not waiting on the edge of my seat for it. In my opinion this book can be skipped.

    Read the Walk Series you won't be disappointed!

    Read all four in the Walk Series...very heartwarming, funny and you will shed a tear. In this series you can see how adversity can become an adventure with new friendships formed and renewal in your faith and trust in your fellowman. Can hardly wait for the next edition coming out in May 2014.

    Great addition to the Walk Series

    I have read each of the Walk Series books as they came out. I am curious how this trip is going to end since A Step of Faith had a surprise ending!

    Love the story

    Great story but I agree with some of the others who said it appeared rushed. It did. Mr. Evans went into great detail with the other books about his journey, the towns, his adventures or misadventures. This one was lacking any depth and it felt as though he was just trying to quickly meet deadlines. Still loved this story I just hope Book 5, if its the last, reads like the first 3.

    loved it!!!

    Another good one!! This one is just as good as the first. I have to admit though that I can't wait to see how it is going to end. I hope to see something about all the women he has met along the way. I would almost like to see his dad end up with one of them..lol

    As Alan hits yet another speed bump, he overcomes and begins his Walk where he left off before the speed bump. He meets interesting people along the way including a cult. He learns a lot of history of this country along the way. The Swamp is scary for him but then as he walks through the swamp discovers maybe the people are scarier than the things in the swamp. as he ends this part of the journey, it has been a year anniversary, he realizes he is healing. I was so sad when the book ended and I read the next book will not be available until next May...It has been a great read and I am looking forward to his journey through Florida
