Publisher Description

Sometimes the only place left to go is home.

Kara Martinson always thought her high school crush was out of her league, but they did share one night she’s never been able to forget. Nearly three decades after being disowned by her parents and forced to raise her son on her own, Kara’s made it—her art is being toasted at a gallery opening. Even better, she and her son are finally on stable ground. Until Mr. One-Night Stand himself crashes her party.


Harry Canton always knew Kara would make it as an artist. Almost thirty years after high school, he still considers her the one that got away. But the surprise reunion doesn’t quite go to plan when Harry discovers he left her with more than just memories when he went away to college. Desperate to connect with the family he never knew existed, Harry convinces his son to move cross country for a fresh start with his father—and pleads with Kara to come home, too.

Kara hasn’t stepped foot in their hometown since the day she was sent away. But her son desperately wants the father he never had and denying him that may cost her everything. Can love heal old heartaches so Harry and Kara can have a second chance at the future they were robbed of so long ago? Or will the pain of the past be too much to face?

The Road Leads Back

This is an outstanding story. I would definitely give many more than 5 stars if I could. I was absolutely hooked from beginning to end. “The Road Leads Back” tells the story ofHarrison, Kara, Phil and Jessica. Harrison is a man who runs his family business. Kara is an artist, a free spirit, with a grown son and an adorable granddaughter, who has Down’s Syndrome. Harrison is in Seattle for a conference, sees a flyer for an Art exhibition for a girl he went to school with. An innocent meeting to touch base with ‘the one who got away and totally disappeared of the face of the earth’. Kara doesn’t really fit the Mold of your typical artist, she’s a single Mum and Grandma who has struggled since her son was born and has been bartering for goods and services since he was a baby. This book follows the reconnection of Kara and Harry 27 years since they’d last seen each other. Marci Bolden’s writing style allowed me to see the story rather than just read a series of words. I felt happy, angry, hopeful, fearful and frustrated. I laughed and I cried. Honestly, I could not put this book down, I just had to know what was going to happen next. Please, do yourself a favour, read this book A.S.A.P., I guarantee you’ll love it as much as I did. Meanwhile, I’m off to read more from Marci Bolden, I just can’t wait to see what’s next!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
