Alan Christoffersen faces a life-changing crisis on his journey to grace in Richard Paul Evans’s New York Times bestseller—the fourth book in the Walk series, now available from Encore for only $14.99!

Almost one year ago, Alan Christoffersen found himself reeling from the loss of everything he held dear—his wife, who was killed in a terrible accident; his business, which a partner stole from him; and his home, which the bank took away. So he decided to leave it all behind and walk from Seattle to the farthest point on the map, Key West. But as he reaches St. Louis, an obstacle forces him to stop in his tracks.

Alan must go to Los Angeles for treatment of a brain tumor. Once there, he finds himself surrounded by loving friends and family, including his father, who is happy to have Alan back in his childhood home; Falene, who has been by his side through difficult times; and Nicole, who helped him recover from a mugging. But Alan alienates them all and resumes his journey in angry loneliness. The people he meets as he walks the southern back roads have lessons to teach Alan about accepting love. He just has to have faith that life can be worth living again—and that the woman he rejected will be willing to forgive him.

Full of wisdom, heart, and hope, A Step of Faith will keep you listening for hours as you make the incredible journey alongside Alan and his unforgettable companions.
