This is book three of a series but can be read as a stand-alone. Like some of Evans's other work, the novel borders on shlocky, but somehow it works anyway. I got caught up in the story of a hugely successful and previously highly selfish and obnoxious businessman who, when the plane he was presumed to be aboard crashed, decided he needed to walk the entire distance of Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica, CA., and remain anonymous. Everyone thinks Charles James is dead, and in a way he is because he changes so much on his journey across 2500 miles on foot. In The Road Home (Book 3), he arrives in California and has to decide whether to assume his old identity or continue to wander. He ponders why he was spared and 211 other passengers died, vowing to be a positive force in the world.
