The Road To Ever After

Written by Moira Young

The Road To Ever After Synopsis

Davy David, an orphan, lives by his wits in the dead-end town of Brownvale. When a stray dog called George turns Davy's life upside down just days before Christmas, he sets in motion a chain of events which forces them to flee. A mischievous wind blows the two of them to a boarded-up museum on the outskirts of town where they meet the elderly recluse, Miss Flint. She has planned one last adventure before her time is up and hires the reluctant Davy and George to escort her. A magical adventure about an unlikely friendship and an unforgettable journey.

The Road To Ever After Press Reviews

An elegiac novel, with the poignant elegance of a fading society belle - and some raucous belly laughs along the way * Guardian * The story asks readers to accept the miraculous, and rewards them in return with a beautifully written story, full of memorable characters and scenes, and the sense that life can be wonderful if you follow the right road. * Books for Keeps * This book sent me on a roller coaster of emotions. Despite shedding tears, I found it to be full of hope as well as being very beautiful and poignant. This is a must read for adults, let alone children! * Readingzone * This book is like a warm hug during dangerous times. An ideal book to put in a stocking for Christmas Day. * Serendipity Reviews * Every line, every thought, every idea in this magical book about an orphan boy on a remarkable journey of self-discovery has been worked up into an unforgettable modern classic. Beautifully written and imbued with genuine warmth and wisdom. * Lancashire Evening Post * Gorgeous writing combines with a hauntingly bleak near-future setting, a whiff of holiday magic, and a transcendent story arc to make this novel feel like the classic it deserves to become. * Kirkus, Starred Review * Gorgeous writing combines with a hauntingly bleak near-future setting, a whiff of holiday magic, and a transcendent story arc to make this novel feel like the classic it deserves to become. -- Kirkus, Starred Review * Kirkus *
