A broken man. A twist of fate. A second chance. From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Mistletoe Promise and The Walk comes the first novel in a riveting new trilogy that explores the tantalizing question: What if you could start over? Chicago celebrity, Charles James can’t shake the nightmare that wakes him each night. He sees himself walking down a long, broken highway the sides of which are lit in flames. Where is he going? Why is he walking? What is the wailing he hears around him? By day, he wonders why he’s so haunted and unhappy when he has all he ever wanted-fame, fans and fortune and the lavish lifestyle it affords him. Coming from a childhood of poverty and pain, this is what he’s dreamed of. But now, at the pinnacle of his career, he’s started to wonder if he’s wanted the wrong things. His wealth has come legally, but questionably, from the power of his personality, seducing people out of their hard-earned money. When he learns that one of his customers has committed suicide because of financial ruin, Charles is shaken. The cracks in his façade start to break down spurring him to question everything: his choices, his relationships, his future and the type of man he's become. Then a twist of fate changes everything. Charles is granted something very remarkable: a second chance. The question is: What will he do with it? The Broken Road is the first book in a much-anticipated new trilogy by beloved storyteller Richard Paul Evans. It is an engrossing, contemplative story of redemption and grace and the power of second chances. It is an epic journey you won't soon forget.

The long-awaited final volume of the trilogy by Patrick Leigh Fermor. A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water were the first two volumes in a projected trilogy that would describe the walk that Patrick Leigh Fermor undertook at the age of eighteen from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople. 'When are you going to finish Vol. III?' was the cry from his fans; but although he wished he could, the words refused to come. The curious thing was that he had not only written an early draft of the last part of the walk, but that it predated the other two. It remains unfinished but The Broken Road - edited and introduced by Colin Thubron and Artemis Cooper - completes an extraordinary journey.

Mackenzie Sellars is the daughter of the town drunk. She and her eight-year-old sister know what it’s like to be on the receiving end of abuse and to live a life of poverty. But now Mackenzie wants to turn things around. At twenty-one, she takes a waitressing job in the hopes of getting herself and her sister out of town and onto a better life. Ryan Patterson is captivated by Mackenzie when he first sees her. As the manager of the diner where she now works, he should know better than to even attempt a relationship, but common sense takes a back seat to interest. He wants to get to know her better, to see if he can bring a smile to her always solemn face. With her guard up, Mackenzie pushes Ryan away, knowing he wouldn’t think so highly of her if he knew who her father was. She can’t let him get behind the wall she’s put up. Doing so could risk the tenuous piece of happiness she’s found with this job, and she’s not ready for any type of relationship anyway. As her father has proven, men can’t be trusted. Taking a risk isn’t in Mackenzie’s DNA, but there’s something about Ryan that is rapidly changing her mind. If only she could keep her secrets and the past hidden from him, she might be willing to try. But as everyone knows, secrets always come out, and just when Mackenzie thinks she has a hold on this new life of hers, she’s faced with the truth that could shatter the new friendships she’s made and the new love she’s found.
