BROOKFIELD, Ill., Feb. 23, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ — In L. B. Johnson’s new book, Small Town Roads ($14.99, paperback, 9781498490719, $7.99, eBook, 9781498490726) two women, one a young police officer from a major urban area, and another, an elderly retired teacher living in a tiny rural farm town, become unexpected neighbors and unlikely friends. When an act of violence draws them together, that friendship becomes a testament to God’s faith, a healing balm for grief, and hope for a future that is not always clear.
In the tradition of Kent Harauf’s bestselling Plainsong, L.B. Johnson has written a lyrical, meditative story that acknowledges the dangers and comforts of our world. Small Town Roads is a loving story about an old, slow place where the terrible loneliness of grief eases because ordinary people decide to be community. With this, her first fiction novel after two #1 best best-selling Memoirs, she reveals a writer that can be enjoyed today as well as looked for tomorrow.
Johnson says, "The book makes it clear that as much as we have become the person of our past, with a commitment to God and community our future is as open as the land of the heartland. All ages will relate to the character’s triumphs and tragedies as they work on healing with hope, humor, and trust in God. The descriptive language makes this small town real in every respect."
L.B. Johnson is the author of the #1 Amazon Best Sellers, "The Book of Barkley, Love and Live through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever" and "Saving Grace – a Story of Adoption."
