A man embarks on an epic road trip to find the daughter he never knew he had in G. Gordon Davis's poignant novel, A Road Beyond the Dark.
The second installment in the Letters from the Road series finds Keeper Wick all grown up. Now a successful pediatrician in his midthirties, Keeper has settled into the routine that life often brings, trying his best not to lament the loveless marriage in which he feels trapped.
All of that changes, however, when he runs into the woman who stole his heart when he was just a boy. And Jonnie Prettyboy's reentrance into his life comes with a shocking revelation: Keeper fathered a daughter with her twenty years ago, when he was just thirteen years old.
Jonnie Prettyboy hasn't come simply to upend Keeper's life. She needs his help.
The daughter Keeper has never met is experiencing a problem pregnancy, and she's run off with her no-good boyfriend. Jonnie Prettyboy begs Keeper to come with her to track her down and help deliver the baby-a request that Keeper simply can't deny.
A surreal road trip ensues that dredges up plenty of old memories for Keeper-and possibly a new chance at love!
