      They can't find the man, but leave his clothes in the road. They take off after the thief and find him. Fleet Management From award-winning truck navigation to reliable Hours of Service logging to enterprise mileage and routing software, drivers and fleet owners alike choose Rand McNally. While on the road, they come upon a man who's been struck by lightning. The bad man grabs the boy, and the boy's father shoots the man in the head and both escape into the woods.

      It's a tender moment that suggests lessons that fathers would have taught their sons in the old world. The man's dreams soften and he knows he's going to die. The man's dreams play a large role throughout the novel; the man tells both himself and the boy that good dreams are to be feared because they indicate a form of acceptance, and that death would inevitably be near. The man and boy decide to leave their camp on the beach, and they pare down their food stores so that the cart is more manageable.

      When she comes to know of this, he demands she give him most of the money the old professor leaves her when he dies. The man tells the boy to go on, to leave him, but the boy refuses. While on the road, they come upon a man who's been struck by lightning. They can't find the man, but leave his clothes in the road. Manage your drivers and other mobile employees from an integrated platform that will create visibility into their activity and driving performance. He is told by the mayor of the village that it might be difficult to find enough porters to carry the father home, as there are few young able men left in the village.

The road to home book

Then, they set out on the road again, still heading south. Incidentally the priest commits suicide with a turmoil for he cannot break the promise made to the brotherhood of serving the needed, and for he cannot live without Gabriella.

It's a tender moment that suggests lessons that fathers would have taught their sons in the old world. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world, date and place unnamed, though the reader can assume it's somewhere in what was the United States because the man tells the boy that they're walking the "state roads.

Unfortunately, the courtship was interrupted when Luo was summoned by the government to return to the city. Their arrival at the coast is anti-climactic. Plot[ edit ] The Road Home is the story of a country girl and a young teacher falling in love, and the teacher's death many years later that brings their son back from the big city for the funeral.

Towards the end of the book Gabbie visits her father hoping to get some answers on why he allowed her mother to treat her so horribly. He worries about the other little boy for the rest of the novel. The man and boy move on, but the perceptive boy asks his father about the people they found in the basement.

The man tells the boy stories of justice and courage from the old world in the hopes that such stories will keep the fire alive in the boy. Gabbie is then gotten rid of at a nunnery to finish out her education by her mother so she can abandon the biggest disappointment in her life.

Several reviewers have speculated that the flashback portion of the film is set during the Anti-Rightist Campaign and that Luo's recall was for investigation and questioning. The man makes the thief take off all of his clothes, leaving him there for dead, which is what the man tells the boy the thief did to them.

He finds a door in the floor of a pantry, and breaks the lock. He continues to the house that's adjacent to the orchard, where he finds a tank of water. While there, Gabriella decides she wants to become a nun.

The boy worries they'll run into someone, like the roadagents or bad guys who eat people in order to survive. Still, their love would not be consummated for a few years more because the teacher was kept away from the village as punishment for having left his assignment in the city without permission.

Remnants of the old world often — like houses, billboards, and hotels — clash with the reality of the new world, reminding the man of the life he once lived.View the latest News You Choose updates from Graham Road Elementary School.
