Night Road is emotionally taxing to read. Readers who are parents will come close to an empathetic meltdown. Hannah’s voice is modern and relevant. This novel addresses the shortcomings we all have — where they come from, how they compound upon each other and how it is sometimes harder to acknowledge them than to set ourselves free of them. Night Road will stay with you after you’ve turned the last page, switched off the light and put your head on your pillow.
