Product description

Review

Ashes uses a poignant cross-country expedition to explore the shared history of an interesting pair of estranged brothers charged with fulfilling their father s bizarre last wish. The pilgrimage twists through childhood memories of comic misdeeds and bruising misunderstandings, detours into sibling squabbles, and bounces over the ruts of problematic marriages and ornery children to arrive at an unexpectedly wonderful destination. I loved it. --Anne Hillerman, New York Times bestselling author of ROCK WITH WINGS"

When two middle-aged, estranged brothers hit the road with their father s ashes in the back seat of the car, what begins as a grueling test of opposites ends up as a heroic testament to love. Ashes is a story about disappointment, dysfunctional families, and male aging, filled with observations that are both painfully true and terribly funny. Sometimes raw, always engaging, Steven Manchester s novel is a wry and wise journey through the ruins of the American Dream. --William Kent Kruger, New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author of ORDINARY GRACE"

Steven Manchester has the enviable ability to capture the intricacies of the human heart through words. Ashes is a moving novel of two brothers and their journey back to one another. A must read. --Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of THE WEIGHT OF SILENCE and MISSING PIECES"

Ashes is a wonderfully character-driven, page-turning tale of two estranged brothers on a personal quest across the country. Their spontaneous road trip is a bumpy one, full of twists and turns and peopled with all sorts of colorful characters along the way, but it s also touched with humor enough to amuse and delight the reader through a heartfelt, life-changing journey of self-discovery. Manchester s devoted fans will find much to love in his new novel, which proves he is an author who knows how to keep readers well-entertained, while touching their hearts deeply and profoundly at the same time. --Julianne MacLean, USA Today bestselling author of THE COLOR OF HEAVEN"
