The Broken Road

The Broken RoadThe Broken Road by Shannon Guymon

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Allison Vaughn's father is a con man, and is nearing the end of his prison sentence in Texas. When her mother dies in a car accident Allison gets custody of her younger siblings. They move back to Alpine, Utah, hoping that their father won't follow them since many people are still feeling the repercussions of his cons from years before.

Unfortunately, the Vaughn's have a hard time fitting in as many people judge them for what their father did. Overtime, most people are able to look past what Max Vaughn did, and accept Allison and her siblings for who they are.

I really wanted to like this book, but it was a struggle to finish. The characters were pretty well done, but relationships felt rushed, and some of the dialogue didn't catch my attention very well.
