Description

Jasper's Road is the follow up to Susan White's popular novels Ten Thousand Truths and Waiting for Still Water. Life on the Walton Lake Road changes for Jasper Williams when Jake Turner moves to the farm to be fostered by Rachel and Ryan. Jasper finds his confidence shaken and the very essence of who he believes himself to be and where he belongs, undermined. A near tragedy puts Jasper front and center making him a hero and local celebrity. What unfolds brings everyone closer to discovering what Amelia always knew. Place, family and love can give everyone the gift of belonging, when they need it the most.
"Dad, how come Amelia took me when she never took babies?"
"We all took you Jasper. Amelia usually only took older kids but I believe everything just fell into place and you ended up exactly where you were meant to be. The first time I laid eyes on you, I knew.
"You didn't freak out when you saw my messed-up mouth?"
"There was not a thing messed up about you Son. Well, your poop stunk but whose poop doesn't? You were perfect.
