Read The Broken Road Online Free - 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 author neatly tied together a storyline of dreams - of hopes, Its everyday's ups and downs. In our waking world, we have so many desires - so many needs. Much of what we see reflected in the mirror is determined by our personal history. There's not a one of us who doesn't have baggage to drag...

I thought the writing, in the beginning, was excellent and the mysterious character who turns out to be the protagonist for most of the story was good. But the scenes with the psychiatrist talking about issues rather than experiencing them in the writing itself left me wanting a bit more. The pro...

Fabulous book, imo. I've always enjoyed RPE and this book reminded me of his "walk" series. While it.s true that the book ends on an unresolved note...I didn't mind that. I am looking forward to the next one.

2.5 stars - I feel guilty giving this such a low rating. RPE is one of my favorite authors and I look forward to his books. However, for some reason this book and his last Christmas book haven't affected me the way his previous books have. I'm trying to figure out if it's me or him that's changed...
