In L. B. Johnson's new book, Small Town Roads ($14.99, paperback, 9781498490719, $7.99, eBook, 9781498490726) two women, one a young police officer from a major urban area, and another, an elderly retired teacher living in a tiny rural farm town, become unexpected neighbors and unlikely friends. When an act of violence draws them together, that friendship becomes a testament to God's faith, a healing balm for grief, and hope for a future that is not always clear. In the tradition of Kent Harauf's bestselling Plainsong, L.B. Johnson has written a lyrical, meditative story that acknowledges the dangers and comforts of our world. Small Town Roads is a loving story about an old, slow place where the terrible loneliness of grief eases because ordinary people decide to be community. With this, her first fiction novel after two #1 best best-selling Memoirs, she reveals a writer that can be enjoyed today as well as looked for tomorrow. (more...)
