The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles
Fiction suggested by Susan
From Amazon – Four boys set out to travel the country in search of a fresh start: Emmett and Billy want to find their mother who left them when they were young, and Duchess and Woolly are on the hunt for a stashed wad of cash. Sometimes their dreams are aligned but often they are not. In other words, adventure ensues: There’s train hopping and car stealing, and with that comes the inevitability of trouble sparked from both good and bad intentions. Each of these young men is chasing his dreams, but their pasts—whether violent or sad—are never far behind.
This is a story of seekers, of fathers and sons, of heroic tales, of the hidden places, of mental illness, and of hope.
