Walk Me Home

Genre: Womens Fiction

Walk Me Home

From the author of Pay It Forward comes the powerful story of two sisters who just lost their mother—and are walking as fast as they can toward the only family they have left. If sixteen-year-old Carly and eleven-year-old Jen can find Teddy, Carly knows he’ll save them from foster care...if he can forgive them for their mother’s vicious lies about him. But when the starving girls get caught stealing food on a Native American reservation, their journey gets put on hold. And after Jen makes a heartbreaking confession, Carly wonders if they’ll ever escape the pain of the past. Set against the backdrop of the American Southwest, Walk Me Home and its resilient heroines will inspire readers and renew their faith in recovery and redemption.
