Jackson Tate's wife and two children are gone - taken away in the blink of an eye by a brutal car accident.

A professor of physics, Jackson can mathematically prove that the universe is governed by specific laws, can explain why planes fly and how matter interacts. But he can't fathom the consequences of loss, or reaffirm his former belief in the unity of love.

Haunted by memories of happiness, as well as the dread following an act of despair, he heads out for the open road--and finds a woman whose pain is almost as great as his. Now Jackson must discover if she can help him to heal his past, and his heart...

A physicist goes on the run after the death of his wife and children at the hands of a drunk driver, and finds the will to live again. Nothing very original or unexpected, but the characters are moving and I enjoyed spending time with them.
