Night Road

Night Road by Kristin Hannah

Review by Moirae the fates book reviews.

Jude Farraday is a happily married, stay-at-home mom who puts everyone’s needs above her own. Her twins, Mia and Zach, are bright and happy teenagers. When Lexi Baill enters their lives, no one is more supportive than Jude. A former foster child with a dark past, Lexi quickly becomes Mia’s best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable. But senior year of high school brings unexpected dangers and one night, Jude’s worst fears are confirmed: there is an accident. In an instant, her idyllic life is shattered and her close-knit community is torn apart. People—and Jude—demand justice, and when the finger of blame is pointed, it lands solely on eighteen-year-old Lexi Baill. In a heartbeat, their love for each other will be shattered, the family broken. Lexi gives up everything that matters to her—the boy she loves, her place in the family, the best friend she ever had—while Jude loses even more.
When Lexi returns, older and wiser, she demands a reckoning. Long buried feelings will rise again, and Jude will finally have to face the woman she has become. She must decide whether to remain broken or try to forgive both Lexi…and herself.
Night Road is a vivid, emotionally complex novel that raises profound questions about motherhood, loss, identity, and forgiveness. It is an exquisite, heartbreaking novel that speaks to women everywhere about the things that matter most. (Synopsis provided by goodreads)
This is the first book by Hannah. I really enjoyed it. Her writing was wonderful. The book will make you laugh and cry. It’s filled with emotions and is defiantly a book for all women and girls to read.
I found it hard to put down and read the book in a few hours. After reading it, I found myself sitting quietly and going over the whole book in detail over and over. It is such a moving book, it will stay with you long after you have finished it.
The relationships in the book felt real and the characters were true to themselves. I never felt like the author was trying to make something happen that shouldn’t have. The dialogue was really good.
After reading this book, I will be looking for more books by this author I highly recommend this book to all women.
