Set in California’s northern wine country, The Road to Hope tells the story of two mothers who experience the earth-shattering impact of two separate tragedies. For Jill, it’s when she discovers her two-year-old son passed away in his sleep. For Maddie, it’s when her parents kick her out the moment they find out she’s pregnant. Both are handed a life neither asked for, forced to navigate a rough road of hardships that include depression and grief for Jill and homelessness, poverty, and abandonment for Maddie. But a brief encounter forces the path of their lives to change course, offering light to their despair, and setting a journey where hope leads the way.
Healing from the stillborn death of her son, author Crissi Langwell wrote The Road to Hope as a therapeutic fictional story that addressed the depression and loss of losing a child. Her experience with poverty and young motherhood influenced this story, as well. While The Road to Hope is a work of imagination, the emotions are true, and the story is set in the author’s Northern California home region of Sonoma County.
