To hold on…

To let go..

To forget…

To forgive…

Which road will you take?

                                                            Night Road

For eighteen years, Jude Farraday has put her children’s needs above her own, and it shows—her twins, Mia and Zach—are bright and happy teenagers.  When Lexi Baill moves into their small, close knit community, no one is more welcoming than Jude.  Lexi, a former foster child with a dark past, quickly becomes Mia’s best friend.  Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable.   

Jude does everything to keep her kids on track for college and out of harm’s way.  It has always been easy-- until senior year of high school.  Suddenly she is at a loss.  Nothing feels safe anymore; every time her kids leave the house, she worries about them.

Vivid, universal, and emotionally complex, NIGHT ROAD raises profound questions about motherhood, identity, love, and forgiveness.  It is a luminous, heartbreaking novel that captures both the exquisite pain of loss and the stunning power of hope.  This is Kristin Hannah at her very best, telling an unforgettable story about the longing for family, the resilience of the human heart, and the courage it takes to forgive the people we love.

Amazon Exclusive: A Conversation Between Kristin Hannah and Emily Giffin

(left) is the author of five New York Times bestselling novels, including Something Borrowed, which has been adapted as a major motion picture that will be in theaters in summer 2011. A graduate of Wake Forest University and the University of Virginia School of Law, she lives in Atlanta with her family.

(right) is the New York Times bestselling author of eighteen novels, including Winter Garden. She is a former lawyer turned writer and the mother of one son. She and her husband live in the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii.

Kristin Hannah: Well, first, I have to say, Emily, that I am just the tiniest bit irritated with you. When I got the call to do this interview, I was thrilled, to say the least. It came at a really busy time for me--right after the holidays and we all know how crazy that is--and my work in progress was giving me fits. Then I picked up Heart of the Matter , and lost myself. No more writing, no more cooking, no getting my hair done or reading my email. Once I started the story I literally couldn''t put it down. Brava, girlfriend, I say. Your characters are so real and compelling, and they always say exactly the right thing. With so much honest emotion, I just have to ask how much of your work comes from your own life?

Emily Giffin: It never fails to thrill me when someone responds to one of my novels--especially when it''s another writer. Writers understand the alchemy involved in making up something from nothing. And I just finished your book, Night Road , and I found it so emotional, so moving, and so terrifying--especially since I have three young children who will someday be teenagers. In terms of how much does my work come from my own life, I would say that I''m absolutely inspired by people, places, conversations, relationships, and issues that I observe, and that the "what if" part of my novel is very much inspired by these things in my life. But the details of my plots and the specifics of my characters come from my own head. How about you, Kristin? I''ll ask you the million-dollar question that every author gets asked: where do you get your ideas?

Kristin: Ah, the idea question. I don''t want to sound coy, but the truth is, I don''t quite know. It''s the most magical part of the process for me. I''m a pretty analytical gal, and I approach writing in the same just-the-facts-ma''am way I approach most things. I need to find an issue that engages me on an intellectual level, and then I need to marry that curiosity with a kind of passion. I need to feel genuinely passionate about each story before I ever write a word, and I have to actually have something to say. It takes me at least a year to research and write a novel, and so I have to really adore each part of it--the characters, setting, story. Most of all, it has to make me feel something genuine. That''s really the most important component. Usually it begins with a single "what if" question--what if you discovered your mother had a whole secret life about which you knew nothing ( Winter Garden ) or what if your husband were accused of a crime you believed he hadn''t committed ( True Colors )--and then I write and re-write until the characters seem as real to me as old friends.

Kristin: I''m amazed by how much we have in common. We''re both moms, both lawyers, both lived in London for a time. You''re like a younger, cooler version of me. How did you make the transition from lawyer to writer, and do you think you''ll ever practice law again?

Emily: I would hardly say I''m cooler than you, Kristin! I hear you live in Hawaii part time! What is cooler than that? I made the transition from lawyer to writer because I was so miserable being a lawyer that I needed some escape from the day-to-day of it. And inventing stories was that escape. I can say, without hesitation, that I will never practice law again. Would you? What kind of law did you practice, and for how long? What did you find appealing (or discouraging) about law? Did you find that it gave you fodder for any of your novels?

Kristin: Honestly, I have met very few lawyers who don''t say that what they really want to do is write. Like you, I can say with certainty that I will never practice law again. Not that anyone would want me to. But I still keep my Bar membership up...just in case this whole writing thing doesn''t work out. And yes, in the past few years, I have finally begun to put some of that law school education to work for me. I find that I''m really enjoying adding legal issues to my work. Of course, I have to talk to real lawyers to make sure I''m getting it right...




From Publishers Weekly

Hannah follows up Winter Garden with a strained story of friendship, social pressures, love, and forgiveness. After a string of foster homes and the death of her heroin-addict mother, Lexi Baill is taken in by a newly discovered great-aunt who lives a spartan life near Seattle. Despite financial problems, the two are glad to have found each other, and though Lexi resolves to stay safely on the periphery at her new high school, she soon meets Mia, unhappy and awkward despite a solid family life, a loving twin brother, Zach, and a closetful of clothes. The friendship flourishes, and Mia''s mother, Jude, relieved and pleased for her daughter, draws Lexi into the family circle. But trouble begins in senior year with a slowly growing attraction between Zach and Lexi, who take great pains to make Mia comfortable with the change in the dynamics. This familiar story takes an unfortunate turn deep into after-school-special territory when Lexi, Mia, and Zach collectively make a bad decision that results in a tragedy with extreme repercussions. Even readers who like their melodrama thick will have problems as Hannah pushes credibility to the breaking point, and more than once. (Mar.)

From Booklist

Hannah�s gripping new novel centers around a tragedy that rocks a family to its core. When her twins start high school, overprotective Jude worries that her daughter Mia, who has always lived in the shadow of her popular brother Zach, will be lost in the shuffle. When Mia meets Lexi, an introverted girl who has been scarred by the abandonment of her feckless mother and a life in foster care, Jude is relieved to see that Mia has found a kindred spirit. When Lexi and Zach fall in love during their senior year, they are happy that sensitive Mia accepts their relationship. Though college plans threaten to separate them, the three are on top of the world as they head off to their graduation party�until a catastrophic decision that night changes everything. Hannah effectively builds tension as the novel moves towards the pivotal tragedy and maintains suspense afterward not only with several surprising twists but, more subtly, with the way she limns the grief and eventual healing of her appealing characters. A breakout for popular novelist Hannah. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With a 400,000-copy first print run and ramped-up promotion and cross-country tour, this will be another best-seller for Hannah. --Kristine Huntley

Night Road



Behind the Novel

How little I knew about the world, and about parenting. When my son started school, I relaxed a tiny bit. He had made it past the dangerous years--or so I thought. He had learned how to cross the street, to wear a helmet, to ask for help, to stay away from strangers. But how do you keep them safe when the danger comes from within?

Senior year of high school. The Big Year.

I wanted so much for him in that year--to love his classes, do well in his endeavors, ace the SAT, go to the prom, sign his yearbook, pick his college. All of it. I remembered how much fun I had senior year, and I wanted the same for him.

I didn''t realize how much the world had changed ... and how much it had stayed the same.

It''s been five years now since my son graduated from high school, and those few years have given me a little space. I''ve gone through the empty nest and come out on the other side. Now, finally, I can look back on that incredibly difficult year and see it for what it was. See me for who I was, and see the mistakes I made along the way. And I made more than a few, believe me.

In retrospect, I think we underestimate the immense pressure our kids are operating under in that last year of high school. We don''t realize how much they want to make us proud ... and how much they fear failing. They''re ready to fly away from the nest, but they don''t really want to test their wings. Everything is dangerous--tests can be suddenly failed, teams can lose, application deadlines can be missed, hearts can be broken.

And then comes spring. The party season.

Believe me, whatever you remember abouthigh school parties hasn''t changed. Teen parties still spring up like mushrooms in dark, quiet places, far from adult eyes. Weekend after weekend.


"How could I have been a better mother?"


For me, this became the most challenging time of all. As I said before, I am a person who researches things. I pride myself on my ability to gather knowledge. I don''t want to operate in a don''t ask/don''t tell world. I believe in honesty and transparency. Unfortunately, there''s a price to all that honesty. Sometimes your kids tell you what you don''t want to hear.

In looking back, I have tried to come up with The Answer. The right way to parent in that stressful, dangerous year. What should I have said about all the pressures he was under? How could I have been a better mother? How should I have dealt with the threat of teen drinking and driving? What''s the right answer when the partying starts?

These are the questions that started me out on Night Road. The novel is my exploration of the year that is so pivotal, both to parents and kids.

It was definitely stressful. It was also exciting, exhilarating, and magical. Here''s what I didn''t know then: Everything I said to my son, he heard. I didn''t need to say it twice or underscore it or remind him. He heard it all and took what he needed. In the end, we both grew up and learned that trickiest of skills: how to let go and hold on at the same time.

Seriously.
I''m putting this book on my list of "worsts" along with "We Built This City on Rock and Roll" and the movie "Toys". So bad. Full of cliché and uninteresting characters. I agree with everything stated by the other 1 star reviewers. I had to force myself to finish it. How could the Nightingale be so good and Night Road be this dismal? Did Hannah write this for Seventeen Magazine? If 100 pages of droning, repetitive description of a mother''s completely narcissistic grief is for you, then maybe you will like it. As for me, I think I''ll have to read Anna Karenina next. Either as punishment or therapy or perhaps both. I think I''ll skip Hannah''s other books.

I’ve read the nightingale, night road and the great alone so far and I’ve absolutely loved every one. Kristin Hannah sure knows how to tug at the heart strings and tell a great story. I loved this as much as the other two if not more ; I went and bought Pretty much all of her other books and I’m going to read each one .... this tale is about Lexi whose drunken night of teenage fun spirals into a horror story - told from 3rd person it shows how each person grieves for that night and I don’t want to spoil alert but Jude ( Mia’s mother (lexis BFF) ) she is very accurately portrayed as far as her anger and grief. When I was young a similar situation happened to my BFFs family and it does destroy the soul. Jude’s anger really comes out and is pretty much how my BFFs mother was for years .. realistic .. what a great book

I enjoy Kristen Hanna''s books (especially Winter Garden and The Great Alone) but this one, albeit a serious and always relevant topic for anyone who has kids, got a little boring and frustrating at times. Too much time spent on describing Jude''s breakdown after Mia''s death. It went on for far too long and her reluctance to accept anyone''s help was just annoying. Additionally, I liked Lexi but found it unbelievable that she chose to go to prison rather than take her lawyer''s advice. Who in their right mind would do that just because they had a bad mother and feared that fate was automatically theirs. Zack gets a pass and becomes father of the year while Lexi goes to jail and suffers. Ugh!!! There were just too many improbable behaviors for my taste. It winds up with a happy ending but I felt like I deserved a hot fudge sundae for having tolerated the whole thing. Kristen Hanna writes beautifully in most of her books but this effort just didn''t do it for me.

Love the writing style of this author. I didn''t want to stop reading and read to the early morning hours. You just felt for each of the characters as you could relate to each one. It''s a tragic story but so common I have to think in this day and age of under age drinking and driving. The mother in this story, Jude, was a helicopter mom but I know a very loving mother but I could see how her children never wanted to disappoint her. But she was also an irritating parent who wanted to control just too much. How her children did not rebel more in this book is amazing. That she lost her only daughter, a twin to her son, was so tragic that affected her to the bone as any parent would feel the loss just as deep. It did take her a while to finally come back to her family, I mean six years of feeling nothing for her other family members and her first granddaughter, the child of her son and Lexi the teenager who was driving the awful night the daughter Mia was killed. I did love Lexi and her strong personality in how she stood up to Jude to make her feelings known and give Jude a reality check. But one thing I found out of unbelievable was the vocabulary of the granddaughter, Grace, at five years old seemed a bit too much for a child her age and more in line to a child of 8-10 I would think. It just didn''t fit for a five year old. Other than that very good story.

I love Kristin Hannah and all of her books that I have read so far (started with the Nightingale and have read 7 total). This book though - I have never cried like this from a book EVER. It was so emotional and so deep. STOP READING TO AVOID SPOILERS: It is every parent''s biggest fear- losing a child. Jude''s grief is exactly how I imagine I would feel. I hate how she treats Lexy after though. Had it actually been Zach and not Lexy, driving the car, I dont think Jude would have responded the same way. I also hate how Jude treated Zach and her husband after but at the same time, I dont know that I would do a better job if I were ever in that situation. This book impacted me to the core and just made me so afraid for my kids to be teenagers. I was bawling so hard through like the last 2 hours of the book that I could barely see. While I would never read this again or probably even recommend it to someone because of how SAD it made me, it was incredibly written and draws you in so deep and for that, I give it 5 stars!

Love, loss, family, friendship, redemption. All of these play a part in this beautifully by written novel. Jude is called a helicopter mother because of her fierce love for her children and being overly protective of her children, Zach and Mia. Her home is where her children''s friends gathered and hung out. Zach and Mia are twins and inseparable. On the first day of high school, Zach meets the love of his life and Mia meets her bff-Lexi. Zach moves the in-crowd, with his good looks and easy laugh. Mia and Lexi lean on each other. Over the years, Lexi has become a fixture at the Farraday home and a part of the family. Jude is the mother Lexi never had. Zach and Lexi keep their feelings for each other hidden until their senior year in high school. Their senior year is a blur of activities and parties. As graduation approaches, Zach and Mia are head in to USC; Lexi, to the local community college. The three vow to always remain friends and create a testament to that bond. Tragedy strikes. Will the bonds of love, family, and friendship tray and break? Or will they become stronger and purer, as the flames of the tragedy burns them.

I''m about half way through, the story is great and holding my attention. I have to say that from the first, I could not stand the mother, Jude. She is way too involved in every aspect of her kids lives, they didn''t really have room to make mistakes or figure anything out on their own. The calendars with every aspect of college and high school made their lives hers, not theirs. My mother did not know every aspect of my life, nor I my child''s life. It was on us to study, take tests, apply for schools. She would help when needed but school was "our place" not hers. As it should be. I believe this is one of the reasons kids have such a hard time adjusting, they aren''t allowed to!! That said, I will listen and read the rest of the story, it''s interesting

I stayed up until 2am on a work night to finish this book....that''s how wonderful it is. Tells the story of Lexi, a teenager who has not been dealt the greatest hand in terms of family life, who meets up with Mia and her twin brother Zach. Mia and Lexi''s friendship is cemented very early on in the book. From the outset you see that the twins are very much loved (and controlled) by their mother - living an idyllic life with a "functional" family setting....or so it seems. The story skips on 3-5 years and then a further 5 years. I cannot explain too much without spoiling the book. Yes, there are 2 parts to it. The Before and the After, I think are mentioned in the book. All the characters are wonderful, I found myself liking them all. Initially I found it hard to relate to Jude, the mother of the twins. But I have a close relative who has gone through her turmoil and it made me more understanding of her personality and what she had to go through. There are lots of references to motherhood. I particularly loved the angst regarding that time in your life when you are teetering on the cusp of teenage and adulthood. The author totally got all the personalities and genders and characters spot on - so clever to be able to write about life through the eyes of a diverse range of ages - from a confused 5 year old, who has taken on the character which is moulded by the adults around her, to the middle-aged adults who are suffering their own miseries with life. Just shows that even though from the outside looking in, that all seems perfect, quite often, it is far from it. Will be looking out for similar by this author.

I have no hesitation in giving this book five stars. It''s inciteful about life, love and the frailties of the human spirit, sad and happy, touchingly heartbreaking yet enlightening and uplifting; cuttingly honest about how good and bad we are at handling situations. The decisions we make which impact on the lives of those we love. I saw myself in aspects of each of the characters. I understood the shy child, the lost girl, the controlling mother, the need to keep everyone happy and safe and the all-consuming anger of grief and loss. Yet the message of love, forgivness, redemption and hope is the overriding theme. I was so engrossed that I couldn''t put it down and read it untill well after 3am, when my eyes refused to work any longer. I finished it this morning and cried most of the way through. It''s a book I will certainly retun to and read again.

This book is a strange mix of amateur psychology, growing up anxst and the impact of parenting style. The idea is really interesting but the complex situation is dealt with in a fairly shallow way, with more effort in describing every outfit each of the female characters wears than in more detail than their emotional or physical battles. The period when the main character is in prison is skipped over - she shared a cell with a Mexican murderer ( apparently for the full term of her sentence) , tried valium, no idea how she paid for it), came off it ( apparently without help), got a degree, worked in the library , had some fights ( no idea why) and was discharged. All turns out well in the last few pages so if you like obvious happy endings it might work for you
