Title: Glory Road
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Author: Lauren K. Denton
Glory Road is the story of three generations of women. Jessie has come home to Glory Road after her husband has an affair. Here on Glory Road, she opens a flower shop while caring for her daughter, Evan, and her mother, Gus. Three different women on their own journeys toward hope, love, and a life well lived.
First, the bad news. If you’re looking for Christian Fiction, this is not it. Some people might argue that point, but at least for me, Christian Fiction has to have some form of spirituality other than a character mentioning one time that she knew where she was going when she died. Also, Christian characters should not drink alcohol. That’s my belief. You’re welcome to have your own.
That being said, if you’re looking for a good Women’s Fiction, Glory Road fits the bill. Jessie, Gus, and Evan are all strong characters with their own lives to live. They’re not looking for love. They just want to have their own place and meaning in a crazy world.
Glory Road has an amazing setting ground with rich detail and description. The story moved at a steady pace with little to no lag within the plot. My favorite was the dialogue. Gus is witty, Evan brings the teenage drama, and Jessie has the strength. Together, they create a force to be reckoned with.
