About the Book

Destiny...Charlie Boone's will be found on a cross country trip with a complete stranger, but why?

Jake Mott, an ex-con convicted of murder, and Charlie Boone, a city bus driver, are complete strangers; however, when their worlds collide, both of their lives are forever changed.

Born the son of a schizophrenic woman, Charlie lives in his boyhood home with his wife and two kids, caring for his sick mother. Tormented by unsettling dreams and frightening visions since childhood, the thought that he shares the same affliction as her is beginning to look like a reality.

Having spent the last three decades in prison, Jake is planning a trip to California to reclaim a bag of money he buried thirty years ago, and he’s making the trip alone…or so he thinks.

Together they embark on an epic journey of hope and redemption, but only one will live to tell about it.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "This novel captivates its readers in the intricacies of two lives that one would not rationally pair but that is the beauty of this novel and an insight to the mystery of life.

Krolick
