The Road Show is the story of five contemporary Latter-Day Saints, eac of whom is struggling with a spiritual or emotional challenge; pornography addiction, post-partum depression, ill health, loneliness, feeling excluded, and spiritual numbness. For various reasons, they all end up participating in their ward's road show. Most of them do this agains ttheir will, but the conflicts that arise from their reluctant participation prople them to ultimate healing. My review: I enjoyed this book. It's very different from anything I've read before. At first I found myself being a bit judgmental about the characters' trials, but as I became immersed in the story I found my compassion for them and my hope that they would be healed overpowering my frustrations with them. I love how the story came together at the end. Braden Bell has written a very touching story. Buy The Road Show Braden Bell's Website

  1. Thanks, Cami! I am so glad you enjoyed it. I was interested in what you said about moving from a place of judging to rooting for the characters. While I was writing this and immersed in the editing, I felt a lot less judgmental of people in real life--and I want to keep that feeling with me.

  2. I completely agree. It is so good to get inside someone else's trials and gain more compassion for different situations.
    Thanks for letting me review the book!
