Peyton Cabot was an only child brought up in a well-to-do but fractious extended family. His father, a troubled veteran of the recent conflict in WWII suffered a catastrophic injury, changing everything for ever. In a bid to heal, Peyton decided to replicate his father’s bike ride down the Florida coast all the way to Key West.

Through his many adventures on his long trek Peyton learned a lot about himself and the people he befriended. “The Key to Everything” was a coming of age story of a fine young man who sometimes seemed a little too good to be true.

After personal tragedy strikes fifteen year old Peyton, he embarks on the personal journey of a lifetime on his bicycle, the same one his father took twenty years ago. The journey is not only for his father, but for Lisa as well, the love of his life who has been sent to Florida by her family because her family think her and Peyton are getting too exclusive.
You meet a lot of quirky, yet loveable characters along the way, and they all end up loving Peyton and helping him to grow up more that memorable summer. You meet an old fisherman who is friends with his Aunt Gert, a racecar driver, a Mexican family who treats him as their own, a Navy pilot who further justifies Peyton's love of flying, and a shop owner who makes sure Peyton dresses like a local while in the Florida Keys. The most memorable characters are Bonnie and Jasper, two sweet poor kids who Peyton helps throughout the entire book.
This was a great break from my usual genre and really a great read if you enjoy historical fiction. The book seemed to take me longer than usual to read, but this was a big journey for a boy, and there was a lot of adventure to be had along the way. Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to review this book for you. ( )

The Key to Everything is a beautifully written story about grief, young love, and the love that comes once in a lifetime. Author Valerie Fraser Luesse has written a stunning story that chronicles a son's loss of his father, a wife's heartbreaking grief for her husband, and a teenager's certainty that he has already found the love of his life. Most of all, this is a story of hope and Leusse absolutely captures Peyton's hope and determination as he makes this journey to Florida and travels the road to manhood!

I recommend this book to all who enjoy inspirational novels filled with love, hope, and family. The Key to Everything is one that I won't soon forget.

The first two books by Valerie Fraser Luesse were all I could hope for in novels that tell wonderful stories filled with engaging characters and a great sense of place and time. I chose The Key to Everything without even reading the blurb, that was how assured I was of liking it. And I did! In fact I loved it. I may even have a little book hangover — I just can’t let this book go. It gets my highly recommended rating.

The Key to Everything is a coming-of-age story set in 1947. This was a time of great hopes, but with the lingering aftereffects of war. I especially liked that Luesse set the novel as a journey in old Florida. While I grew up many years after this story is set, I did experience Florida before the advent of Disney. It was a time of small coastal towns, kitschy motels, and sometimes crusty fish camps. The book brought back those memories and more, with many things I didn’t know before. Peyton’s journey on the saddle of a bike allows the reader to experience the small things that made the Florida of that time special. The characters are wonderfully drawn — I came to love Peyton and all those he met along the way. Peyton is a remarkable character, fearless in his desire to find his own way. I loved how he learned about his father’s dreams and aspirations, along with his disappointments and compromises. This knowledge helped to determine Peyton’s own path. The Key to Everything is a quiet book, yet it has some very big moments that are not shouted, but seep into the reader’s heart. This beautifully told story will stay with me a very long time. I also think that the novel would make a great choice for book clubs. I know I really want to talk about it!

I wish I could do more justice to this book. Just let me leave you with one more thought — read this book! You will be so glad you did.

Highly Recommended.

The Key to Everything is a throwback to simpler times. Times when people trusted each other and helped others out without a second thought.

Valerie Fraser Luesse’s story is a coming of age story about Peyton Cabot who takes a bike ride through Florida in both remembrance of this father and to understand him better. And everyone needs an Aunt Gert in their lives to lay the truth out there.

This is a mellow, sometimes episodic book but enjoyable nonetheless. Sit back, slow down, and enjoy the ride.
