From the Amazon #1 Best Selling Author of “Saving Grace – A Story of Adoption” and “The Book of Barkley – Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever” – new Christian Fiction.
Let go of the life you wanted to get the one that you were meant for.
With a fresh college degree in Criminal Justice and big future dreams, young Rachel Raines is looking for a temporary place to hide a heart full of loss and a quieter police patrol than Chicago, The bequest of her late aunt’s house seems like the perfect opportunity for both if she can survive the gigantic spiders, creaky plumbing, and inevitable challenges of being the rookie on a small town force.  It’s a place unlike any she has lived in – a tiny rural town with no coffee baristas, no night life, and one single restaurant that has a giant cow perched on the roof. It was not the life she had expected.
Sometimes God has other plans for us.
Down the street, her aunt’s best friend, Evelyn Ahlgren, marks the passing of seasons and neighbors, long mired in her loneliness as a widow. When the young woman with scars of her own befriends her, they strike up an unlikely friendship across generations that just might help them both heal with a little help from heaven above.
With L.B. Johnson’s reflective, lyrical writing and moments of deep-seated humor, Small Town Roads is a beautifully told, heartwarming story of finding the best in people, including ourselves, in the most unlikely of places.

“A warm and touching third book!”

Five Star Review on Amazon By VicMD

Having read the author’s other two books, I was excited to pick up her first fiction piece. This book has a similar feel to her previous works, with warm and flowing descriptions, meriting multiple re-reads to catch all the nuances of her prose. I was curious how the issues of faith would be handled, this being published by a Christian publishing house. In fact, it was a sublime and personal handling of faith. Her characters are well fleshed out, and interesting, as they explore loss, life, and love across generations.

This book would make a fine Christmas gift, for the well read teen on up to your grandparents. And as a plus, the author also donates profits from her book sales to various charitable animal rescues and other animal service organizations.
