Welcome to the Blog Tour for Glory Road by Lauren K. Denton with JustRead Publicity Tours! We continue the Glory Road celebration on social media starting March 26.

ABOUT THE BOOK

GloryRoad-LaurenKDentonTitle: Glory Road
Author: Lauren K. Denton
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Women’s Fiction/Southern Fiction
Release Date: March 19, 2019

Written in Lauren Denton’s signature Southern style, Glory Road tells the story of three generations of women navigating the uncertain pathways of their hearts during a summer that promises to bring change–whether they’re ready for it or not.

At thirty-eight, garden shop owner Jessie McBride thinks her chances for romance are years behind her and, after her failed marriage, she’s fine with that. She lives contentedly with her fiery mother and her quiet, headstrong daughter. But the unexpected arrival of two men on Glory Road make her question if she’s really happy with the status quo. Handsome, wealthy Sumner Tate asks her to arrange flowers for his daughter’s wedding, and Jessie finds herself drawn to his continued attention. And Ben Bradley, her lingering what-could-have-been from high school days who’s known her better than anyone and whom she hasn’t seen in years, moves back to the red dirt road. Jessie finds her heart being pulled in directions she never expected.

Meanwhile, Jessie’s fourteen-year-old daughter, Evan, is approaching the start of high school and trying to navigate a new world of identity and emotions–particularly as they relate to the cute new guy who’s moved in just down the road. At the same time, Jessie’s mother, Gus, increasingly finds herself forgetful and faces a potentially frightening future.

As all three women navigate the uncertain paths of their hearts and futures, one summer promises to bring change–whether they’re ready for it or not.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

Glory Road is a quiet, small place where Jessica owns a thriving garden shop, and lives with her daughter and mom. She moved back to Glory Road years ago after devorcing the husband that decided he wanted someone else and not her. Jessica lives her quiet life and was content with her small family. That is until two handsome, very different men came into her life. One she had never met, one that lived on Glory Road when they were growing up. And life is just not the same as before these two men arrive.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I love the characters, they were all fantastic! Jessica and her quirky mom has such different personalities, and I can see a little off Evan in both of the ladies. Three strong women, two of which have suffered heartbreaking issues life has thrown them, all determined to stay strong and fight to strive in this world. I love Glory Road and the atmosphere surrounding the place! It all seems olive somewhere in a dream, yet so close and realistic. It’s a place I would sure want to live. Ms. Denton does a really good job weaving together the differences between Ben and Sumner, and with Jessica struggling to make a decision between the two. Of course I fell in love with Ben from the beginning, so I was cheering for him all along! But you have to read the book for the rest of that story!

Glory Road is a sweet calming read for me. It’s like settling down at home for a nice relaxing stay. It’s that book you want to read when you need a few days of relaxing. It’s a book that I highly recommend to anyone wanting a nice clean time of enjoyment through books!
