From the Publisher:
"My name is Alan Christoffersen. You don’t know me. ‘Just another book in the library,’ my father would say. ‘Unopened and unread.’ You have no idea how far I’ve come or what I’ve lost. More important, you have no idea what I’ve found." —Prologue
What would you do if you lost everything—your job, your home, and the love of your life—all at the same time? When it happens to Seattle ad executive Alan Christoffersen, he’s tempted by his darkest thoughts. A bottle of pills in his hand and nothing left to live for, he plans to end his misery. Instead, he decides to take a walk. But not any ordinary walk. Taking with him only the barest of essentials, Al leaves behind all that he’s known and heads for the farthest point on his map: Key West, Florida. The people he encounters along the way, and the lessons they share with him, will save his life—and inspire yours.

Beloved writer Richard Paul Evans (THE CHRISTMAS BOX) takes the first step into a new series with this tale of a man who decides to walk away from his problems--literally. Seattle businessman Alan Christoffersen loses everything he ever cared about in his life and is on the verge of using a bottle of pills to put the finishing touches on his tragic existence when he decides instead to act on a compulsion to set out on foot for Key West, Florida, the furthest point from him in the continental U.S. Surrendering all of his possessions, Alan embarks on his incredible hike, and he encounters a series of strangers who remind him that life's most profound lessons can sometimes only be written on a clean slate.
