Glory Road

Lauren K Denton
Also Available In

One of Southern Living's "25 Beach Reads Perfect for Summer"

"Glory Road brims with faith and family, second chances, and new horizons." -LISA WINGATE, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours

The only thing certain is change-even in a place as steady as Perry, Alabama, on a street as old as Glory Road.

Nearly a decade after her husband's affair drove her back home to South Alabama, Jessie McBride has the stable life she wants-operating her garden shop, Twig, next door to her house on Glory Road, and keeping up with her teenage daughter and spunky mother. But the unexpected arrival of two men makes Jessie question whether she's really happy with the status quo.

When handsome, wealthy businessman Sumner Tate asks her to arrange flowers for his daughter's lavish wedding, Jessie finds herself drawn to his continued attention. Then Ben Bradley, her lingering what-could-have-been from high school, moves back to the red dirt road, and she feels her heart pulled in directions she never expected.

Meanwhile, Jessie's fourteen-year-old daughter, Evan, is approaching the start of high school and navigating a new world of 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, is suffering increasingly frequent memory lapses and faces a frightening, uncertain future.

In one summer, everything will change. But for these three strong Southern women, the roots they've planted on Glory Road will give life to the adventures waiting just around the curve.

"Rich colorful characters capturing my heart, combined with a story that kept me up till the wee hours, Glory Road is a perfect read. Lauren Denton has done it again!" -Lisa Patton, bestselling author of Rush and Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter

"Once again Lauren Denton brings her lyrical writing and compelling characters to a story that will enthrall readers from page one." -Marybeth Mayhew Whalen, author of Only Ever Her and co-founder of She Reads, for Glory Road

"From the opening of The Hideaway, the reader is captured by the voice of a woman who has for too long kept a story that must be told, one the reader wants to hear. Denton has crafted a story both powerful and enchanting: a don't-miss novel in the greatest southern traditions of storytelling." -Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of The Bookshop at Water's End

"A poignant and heartfelt tale of sisterhood, motherhood, and marriage, Hurricane Season deftly examines the role that coming to terms with the past plays in creating a hopeful future. Readers will devour this story of the hurricanes-both literal and figurative-that shape our lives." -Kristy Woodson Harvey, national bestselling author of Slightly South of Simple

Charming Slow Burn
5 stars By Deb P, Feb 14 2019
I admit it. I was captured by the beautiful cover, but this gentle contemporary Southern story touched my heart. 

Glory Road is a slow burn. Three generations of women, each experiencing life changes. Each chapter from the point of view of one of the characters: Evan, the teenage daughter; Jessie the divorced mum, and Gus, the grandmother. 

Reading Glory Road is like being dipped in warm molasses. Gentle, but the author dealt with real life issues.  Bonus appeal for garden lovers. 

Not overtly Christian, but a good truth was communicated and it was a lovely clean read. I will definitely read more by this author.
