Natalie Marino has made a career out of telling women how to live happily while married. So when her own marriage falls apart, Natalie decides to hit the road.Within the course of a week, Natalie is dumped by her husband, receives an urgent call home from her father, and discovers her estranged sister is pregnant.
A road trip on Route 66 may not help, but it sure couldn't hurt. Or so Natalie thinks, until Lindsay's boyfriend starts stalking them. Will their trip down the Mother Road bring the two sisters closer together or turn out to be the biggest wrong turn yet?
"Relationships are the backbone of The Mother Road, and AlLee gives us real ones, conflicted and complicated. I alternated between cheering Natalie and wanting to smack her upside the head. Not that her younger sister is perfect. Not by a long shot. But I fell in love with these characters and wished the road trip hadn't ended so soon. Novel Rocket and I give it a very high recommendation. It's a must-read." Ane Mulligan, Sr. Editor, Novel Rocket
"With a compelling, fresh voice, Jennifer AlLee blends Americana with the trials of a modern-day family. The Mother Road's a simply smashing story. Not to be missed!" --Patti Lacy, author of Reclaiming Lily
"I felt like I was right there in the car with estranged sisters Natalie and Lindsay as they motored down The Mother Road toward a future free from heartache, loneliness, and fear. You don't want to miss this fun story that will tweak your every emotion (and a few you might have forgotten about)! I'm making space on my 'keepers shelf' for this one!" --Loree Lough, best-selling author of more than 80 award-winning books, including reader favorite From Ashes to Honor
