An Alaskan Journey
A coming-of-age novel that will capture your heart.
Hazel E. Barnhill fled into the darkness, boots crunching in the snow, lungs filling with cold air. An image of her mom, head bowed over the kitchen table on folded arms, broke Hazel’s heart. These were the first moments of her life as a 16-year-old pregnant, emancipated teenager, although she didn’t know what that meant yet… Hazel’s remarkable journey begins when her friend Jack gives her a ride on the darkest night of her life. She encounters safe people and places and treacherous circumstances as she walks the road of young adulthood as a single mom. Along the way, she works, studies, nurses, loves, and struggles with loss. Redemption and healing play a big part in her journey, and with her faith in God, stubborn hope, and the good friends she meets along the way, there is never any doubt that this resilient young woman will go the distance. Road Girl is the inspirational story of a girl who learns to reconcile her past, embrace her future, and make her way out of the wilderness of abandonment and abuse.
