Where is home?
Wherever the people you love are.
Single mother, Ruth, and her son, DJ, have never truly fitted in, but that didn’t matter, so long as they were together. When their home comes under threat, their quiet life will change forever.
DJ meets Tom, a man who ten years ago walked out of his house and never looked back. Ruth, DJ and Tom have all felt like outsiders. Burdened with grief and insecurities, they are not living their best lives. They are very ordinary people. In fact, they could be you or I. Sometimes even the most ordinary of us end up doing extraordinary things.
I think we could all say that there are times in our lives when we have felt like outsiders, when maybe we didn’t quite fit in. Grab a book and you’ve got an instant escape, a ticket to anywhere. A Thousand Roads Home by Irish Times bestseller, Carmel Harrington is that ticket.
It is a warm, powerful and unforgettable novel about friendships, family and unlikely heroes. It is guaranteed to brighten up a dull day. Carmel’s writing is exquisite and she has a real talent for making you believe that you can be extraordinary too.
It was a joy to get so involved in the lives of the three main characters, as well as the lives of their friends. A Thousand Roads Home is full of hope and it touches on a subject that is talked about every day in our society. It made me very thankful for all that I have and that’s not a bad way to feel when you finish a book.
