Sam - an unemployed alcoholic with very little left to live for - awakens on a train he has no recollection of boarding. As he struggles to discover how he arrived there, as well as where this train is heading, he finds himself reminiscing his way through the entirety of his life, being shown for the very first time how all things have worked together to bring him to the train's final destination - which is exactly where he needs to be. Based upon the real-life experiences of author Steve Martin, 13 Stops is a sometimes thrilling, sometimes sweet, sometimes beautiful ride through life itself, showing how - in spite of our own lack of understanding of why we experience various trials - not one of them is meaningless, and not one tear is ever wasted.

My name is Steve Martin, and I am the author of this novel. While I have a great deal respect and admiration for the world famous author and comedian of the same name, I am not he. I am instead a 52 year-old Christian author from the Chicago area. I do, however, write a weekly blog (Wbc upon further review) that has been read in over 40 countries, on all six continents. While I greatly appreciate the publicity of having my work somehow connected to that of the far more famous and popular Steve Martin, I would truly hate for anyone to be misled into thinking that this novel was his work. That being said, I still believe it's a wonderful novel, and would look splendid on your coffee table. Thank you, and have a beautiful day.
I read this book & liked it. I it a well written book but NOT BY THE COMEDIAN sTEVE MARTIN..BUT BY THE Steve Martin THAT GREW UP IN Chicago & GRADUATED GRADE SCHOOL IN 1976. I recommend the read...but know who the author is :) That is all... Steve... LOVED IT!!!!
