A secret involving one of the authors children shakes the family and brings them to reality. As a result of this discovery the author devises a cross country family adventure complete with roadblocks, breathtaking scenery, and challenges unseemingly setting the stage for connection, discovery and faith. I was able to connect to the characters personalities very quickly as the author showed his readers the faith and core of each member of his family including himself. Differing and interesting journal entries by his wife and children show how each perceives their experiences in fright, calm, and becoming in touch with nature, self and each other.
The book offers much for each reader promising interesting and engaging storyline for the adventurer in us all. Road Trip to Redemption was inspiring yielding hope to those who suffer from family troubles, those with lost faith or those who read biographies. I was entertained by this faith challenging read and will recommend this book to others. I received a complimentary copy from Tyndale House Publishers for my review.
