Product description


Advance Praise for Song for the Road
Basi's exquisite, gut-wrenching debut is filled with loss, hope, and secrets that fans of Julianne Maclean's A Curve in the Road will enjoy."

"As empowering as that fabulous movie, Thelma and Louise."
--Midwest Book Review

"An emotionally complex story about reconciling love with loss, and the healing power of music...I loved every scene from the first to the last."
--Barbara Claypole White, bestselling author of The Perfect Son and The Promise Between Us

"In a novel filled with music, heartbreak, and surprising laughter, Basi takes us on a journey that encompasses both unimaginable loss and the powerful resilience of the human heart. A book club must read." --Kerry Anne King, bestselling author of Whisper Me This and Everything You Are

"A must read! Basi's insights into the human experience make A Song for the Road an unforgettable journey. She introduces us to life, loss, love, and the resurgence of hope--she introduces us to ourselves. The beauty of her prose and this adventure will linger long after the last page."
--Katherine Reay, national best-selling author of The Printed Letter Bookshop

"A nuanced grief journey whose final moments will push [our heroine] to face the depths of her shame and loss--and, scarier, the love that may help her emerge stronger on the other side. A truly panoramic view of human frailty and resilience."
--Kathryn Craft, award-winning author of The Far End of Happy and The Art of Falling

"A heartachingly beautiful book about grief and guilt, family and friendship, love and loss. Readers will be swept away with the lyrical descriptions and charmed by the characters. I wanted to race through the book to see what happened at the same time that I wanted to savor every page."
--Orly Konig, author of The Distance Home and Carousel Beach

Lyrical prose propels this story about coming to terms with past choices and irreconcilable grief. A great read for anyone who finds themselves mired in guilt and unable to move forward."
--Marie Watts, author of The Cause Lives --This text refers to the paperback edition.
