At the end of Redemption Road stands a tiny school. The building is little more than a pile of rubble on a bald piece of land, but inside, children learn much more than just reading and writing from Mama Grace. They learn about love in a land where it is in short supply.
It is here, in the outskirts of Nairobi, where Lana feels most at home—as far away as she can get from her Utah Mormon roots. It also here where her heart is captured by Jomo—a seven-year-old street urchin who will lead her on a journey into the very heart of a land called both dark and dawn.
In her stunning new novel, Toni Sorenson Brown weaves a deeply moving and authentic tale of heartbreak and healing, of romance and return. It will move you to know that one solitary soul, tattered and discarded, is still worth saving, and that the road to redemption winds even through a forgotten village in the darkest part of the darkest place on earth.
