Offical Release Day & Review: Schriener Road by Allison Frohriep

Synopsis: Follow the story of Carlisle, the big city doctor who leaves behind all she has worked to create in a life for herself to go back to her small town and begin again exactly where she vowed to never return. To ease her transition, she meets her foremothers in the way of their journals.

Schriener Road tells the story of five generations of farm wives in the Schriener family. Their lives span the twentieth century and beyond as wars, social unrest and personal trials interweave to form five chapters of a single story.
The Author does an great job of making the characters real. They are not perfect but their flaws are what makes them so realistic. The story is full of family and love.
The main character Carlisle wanted nothing more than to escape the town she grew up in. After a years away at college learning to be a doctor, she runs into Jon on a trip home to visit her sister and the newest addition to the family. Love between her and Jon blossoms and her future shifts. Soon she is back to stay in the town she never wanted to return to. With marriage to Jon, she becomes part of the Schriener family. With open arms she is welcomed, but she questions if she can live up to the previous Schriener women. Ultimately she learns she doesn't need to. She just has to be what's right for her and Jon.
This book is a amazing multi-generational  journey of life, laughter, love and strength…

Kiera Connell is a rising star among public relations representatives in the world of professional baseball. She is strong, independent, smart, and above all, self-reliant. Reydel Cruzado is a second baseman with a big presence and even bigger mouth. Soon, as their worlds collide, Kiera is asking herself if she really was all the things she prided herself on being. Her world is shaken up by the baseball superstar, never to return to what it once was, but would she really want it to have stayed the same?

Along the way, Kiera finds a new love and a family mystery, somehow entangled in each other. For a woman who always prided herself on keeping business and personal lives separate, she finds that intermingling the two can be dangerous and exhilarating at the same time.
