Alan Christoffersen, a once-successful advertising executive, wakes one morning to find himself injured, alone, and confined to a hospital bed in Spokane, Washington. Sixteen days earlier, reeling from the sudden loss of his wife, his home, and his business, Alan left everything he knew behind and set off on an extraordinary cross-country journey. Carrying only a backpack, he planned to walk to Key West, the farthest destination on his map. But a vicious roadside stabbing has interrupted Alan’s trek and robbed him of his one source of solace: the ability to walk.
Homeless and facing months of difficult recovery, Alan has nowhere to turn—until a mysterious woman enters his life and invites him into her home. Generous and kind, Angel seems almost too good to be true, but all is not as it appears. Alan soon realizes that before he can return to his own journey, he must first help Angel with hers.
From one of America’s most beloved and bestselling storytellers comes an astonishing tale of life and death, love and second chances, and why sometimes the best way to heal your own suffering is by helping to heal someone else’s.
Inspiring, moving, and full of wisdom, Miles to Go picks up where the bestseller The Walk left off, continuing the unforgettable series about one man’s unrelenting search for hope.
After Alan Christoffersen lost the life he made in Seattle (his wife, home, and career), he went on a walk. With this simple premise, Evans launched this life-affirming series, which has now sold over half a million copies. As the protagonist also reveals in Miles to Go, the intended destination, Key West, was chosen for being "simply the furthest point on the map" from his starting point. The second book begins with Christoffersen facing a major hurdle after he is robbed and stabbed by several teenagers, he must learn how to walk again. Ultimately, a near-stranger takes him in until he heals. Evans has a gift for con-veying emotion through fictional dialogue. Besides being a story of hope and redemption, Miles to Go is a stand-alone page turner which will certainly hook many people on Evans' series.

Great story, shame on the author
This author took a great story and broke it up into too many segments. He's rationing out 200-300 pages at a time do people can pay $13 for each little segment. I don't care enough about the end to keep getting strung along.
Great Part 2
I finished the walk earlier this week, I have truly enjoyed this book even more than it. I can't wait for the next!
Very easy read - good stories!
