Today I’m excited to show you a book I received from Picador Books, and a big thank you to Siobhan Slattery for this!  I was interested in this book from the moment I read about it, not least because of the title which is unique and intrigued me so much.  This book is out later this month and I can’t wait to read it and share my thoughts with you. 🙂  Let’s take a look at what book I’m talking about…

Mountain Road, Late at Night by Alan Rossi – A fatal car crash. A young boy orphaned. Who should now become his parents
Nicholas and April are driving home from a party when their car crashes on an empty road high up in the Blue Ridge Mountains. As they lay on the roadside slowly dying, their four-year-old son, Jack, waits for them at home. In the days after their deaths, their grieving relatives begin to descend on the family home. There, they are forced to decide who will care for the child Nicholas and April left behind. Nicholas’s brother Nathaniel and his wife Stefanie aren’t ready to be parents, but Nicholas’s mother and father have issues of their own. And April’s mother Tammy is driving across the country to claim her grandson.
Spanning a few traumatic days in the minds of each family member, this is a masterly portrait of grief, the pain of sudden loss and a family in utter crisis. Gripping, affecting and extremely accomplished, this unforgettable story asks one crucial question: what do you do when the worst happens?

 

This sounds like such an interesting and intruiging story doesn’t it?  I’ll be sharing my review as soon as possible here and in the meantime tell me what books you’re excited about for February! 😀
