Road Trip to Redemption - review

"Brad Mathias thought everything in his family was fine.  A busy, contented dad, he had noticed that his children weren't as close as they used to be - and his daughter Bethany, in particular, had become withdrawn and moody.  But he assumed she was "just being a teen"...until he and his wife learned the secret Bethany had been carrying, one that rocked their family to the core.
In a last-ditch attempt to reach their daughter and to reconnect as a family, Brad and his wife piled everyone into the car and embarked on a wild, crazy, seven-thousand-mile trip across the country.  As they drove, they realized how far apart they'd drifted, found unexpected blessings along the way - and journeyed together from pain and loss to recovery and healing." - (taken from the back cover of the book)

In the first part of the book 'Road Trip to Redemption', Brad Mathias introduces us to his family.  We learn about Brad, his wife Paige and their three children: Jessica, Bethany and Caleb. For me, it was a little slow moving but necessary to know each member of the Mathias family and why the 'Road Trip to Redemption' was the best idea that God placed in Brad and Paige's hearts. 

The second part of the book takes you, the reader, on a breathtaking, journey from Nashville, TN to Canada and interesting places in between. What an amazing story of strength and healing for the Mathias family. 

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my opinion.
