Fiction Book Review: MOTHER ROAD by Dorothy Garlock, Author. Warner $ (p) ISBN The author of A Place Called Rainwater (and dozens more) is back with another sweetly. Mother Road is a book that I've been wanting to read without realizing that I've been wanting it.

I liked Mother Road best in the first half of the book, when Leona and Yates are strangers to each other and Yates is new to the town, and we get to know the cast of characters as he does, from the outside in.

As the book goes on and the plot featuring Virgil develops, other characters’ viewpoints keep popping in, everyone from the local.

The man ’s wife and the boy ’s mother, in The Road she only appears through the man’s memories and dreams. While the man reacted to the decline and destruction of humanity with a dogged perseverance, the woman eventually gives in to despair.

She believes that it is inevitable that she will be raped, murdered, and eaten, so she decides to escape that fate by committing suicide. “Mother Road,” directed by Rauch (making it the final world premiere of his OSF tenure), is set in the present and begins in Southern California, where Steinbeck’s novel ended.

The woman is the man's wife and the boy's mother, and she also goes unnamed throughout the novel. She leaves the man and boy when the boy is still very young, and she is presumed to be dead. Through the man's flashbacks, it became clear that the woman had grown weary of the brutal and bleak world in which they lived and wanted to die alone.

Wallis weaves together a rich tapestry of eight decades that chronicles the road from its founding to its demise with the advent of the interstate Reviews: 1.The Woman in The Road.

The Woman. The Woman – The Boy's mother and The Man's wife – doesn't appear for long in the novel. Occasionally, The Man thinks of her fondly or The Boy will recall her, but she remains more of an absence than anything else.

She is an counter-example to the man: someone who can't adjust to the brutal new world and.Mother Road is a book about a time in our history that bring nostalgia to the front and center. It's about a time when there was more honesty and caring about neighbors and other people.

This is a good way to read about history without it being boring. I give this book 31/2 stars.4/5(1).
