August Shroeder, a burned-out teacher, has been sober since his 19-year-old son died. Every year he’s spent the summer on the road, but making it to Yellowstone this year means everything. The plan had been to travel there with his son, but now August is making the trip with Philip’s ashes instead. An unexpected twist of fate lands August with two extra passengers for his journey, two half-orphans with nowhere else to go. 

I absolutely LOVED this book. A beautiful and moving story that really brought tears to my eyes. Although the story is simple, and almost improbable with no intricate plots or twists, it is a warming and emotional story of an alcoholic science teacher who’s been sober for almost two years, and two young boys who live with their single dad in a less than desirable environment.

When August stops at a mechanic shop to get his RV tuned-up for a road trip, he meets Seth–an inquisitive twelve-year-old, and his younger brother Henry. From there, they take off on a transformative journey that none of them were ever expecting. A simple story of love, bonding, recovery, trust and friendship that will remain with you for a long time.

This is another feel-good book by Catherine Ryan Hyde, and definitely worth reading or listening to. The narration by Jeff Cummings was perfect, and added a beautiful tone to this lovely story.
