Mariah Meeks, a dedicated compassionate woman, works for the Orphaned Children’s Society. With no family or children of her own, she’s devoted all her passion and energy into children’s causes. One little boy in particular has a place in Mariah’s heart —and in her brother’s home. But news has come that the adoption may not take place, and the little boy very well may soon be removed from the family he’s comes to love and returned to a father who abandoned him years before. Mariah’s not about to turn the young lad over without making certain all the facts are correct. Before she goes breaking up her brother’s family and their hearts, she decides to undertake a journey to check for herself if the father is on the up and up. Hendrick Simmons is a hard-working mechanic, who proposed marriage to Mariah some years before. Mariah spurned his affections for reasons unknown, but letting go isn’t something that comes easily to Hendrick … especially when he hears about Mariah’s crackpot plan to drive 2,000 miles cross-country by herself. Mariah’s not wild about his insistence on joining her, but Hendrick stands firm. Mariah told him no once, but he’s not about to let her do it again. ALL ROADS LEAD HOME is the story of a determined woman who cares deeply for children and one man in particular, though her fearful heart won’t allow her to admit the truth. ALL ROADS LEAD HOME is the story of a stubborn man insistent on protecting the woman he loves, though his once-spurned heart cautions him to take it slow. ALL ROADS LEAD HOME is the story of two people caught up together on a cross-country drive that leads them on the adventure of a lifetime in search of a happily-ever-after for one little boy … and perhaps the two of them, as well. Christine Johnson is a gifted author with a unique voice that will surely appeal to readers of inspirational and historical fiction. As we’ve come to expect from Ms. Johnson’s works, her novel ALL ROADS LEAD HOME is filled with a soft spirituality that whispers across the pages. Ms. Johnson does a superb job in creating a world where we join Mariah and Hendrick on their 2,000 mile journey down the road to home.
