Walking on Water Richard Paul Evans read online review & book description:

With this New York Times bestseller, the beloved Walk series ends as Alan Christoffersen reaches his destination and the beginning of a new life: “Definitely a journey worth taking” (Booklist).

After the death of his beloved wife, after the loss of his advertising business to his once-trusted partner, after bankruptcy forced him from his home, Alan Christoffersen embarked on a daring cross-country journey—a walk across America, from Seattle to Key West, with only the pack on his back. Through it all he learned life-changing lessons about love, forgiveness, and most of all, hope.

Now Alan must again return west to face yet another crisis, one that threatens to upend his world just as he had begun to heal from so much loss, leaving him unsure of whether he can reach the end his journey. It will take the love of a new friend, and the wisdom of an old friend, to help him to finally leave the past behind and find the strength and hope to live again.

Walking on Water is a beautiful story of one man’s search for a new beginning, of “humorous moments, heartwarming moments, moments of self-discovery, and moments of profound wisdom” (Deseret Morning News).

    I have been a reader of Richard Evans' books. They have always been touching and give you a positive insight. This series has been uplifting, sad, informative, and just a very good read. I feel like I was on this journey with him. Loved each book and couldn't wait to start each new one. Thanks.

    I've been waiting for this book for a year now. I have fully enjoyed the "Walk" series and following along Alan's journey. However, this seems like the weakest book of the 5. Maybe my expectations were too high. The first two thirds of the book, while Alan's dad is in the hospital were very satisfying. It is when Alan resumes his journey, though, that the book seems to fall apart. What I have enjoyed about the other books, besides seeing Alan resolve his inner turmoil, is the journey itself, and seeing America through his eyes. I would have never known about places like Wall Drug if I hadn't read the books. I love small town America, and the wonderful treasures that are found there. Evans does a superb job sharing those treasures through Ala's eyes and working them into his healing process. I don't know if I expected a pivotal moment where Alan does heal, but it seems like there were none in this book. When he reaches Key West, it is almost anti-climatic. Perhaps this is what Evans wanted. After all, it wasn't the walk itself that was healing Alan, but the journey of healing and hope. And the Falene angle wasn't quite believable for me. She had her own personal conflicts to resolve and they seemed to wrap up too neatly. It was a decent book, and I am glad to have read it, but just wasn't what I was hoping for.

    I enjoyed reading this last book in The Walk series as much as I enjoyed the others. I was not disappointed at all and feel a slight sadness that has come to an end. I've recommended these books to family and friends along with any other book that Richard Paul Evans writes. Thank you for taking us readers on this beautiful journey!

    Alan's last leg of the journey provided the much needed closure that I was yearning for. Although some things were predictable, it still had a very sweet ending. I was a little surprised that the "actual journey" did not start until chapter 26.
