The Long Way Home is a work of dramatic fiction set in the 1950s in the United States and was penned by author DL Norris. Combining many different themes of love, intrigue, murder-mystery, tragedy and interpersonal drama, the action centers around widowed protagonist Maggie Davis and her manor house which she runs as a bed and breakfast. The community of Tilden has become a little more transient over the years, and new guests bring opportunities but also trouble to Maggie’s doorstep. As Maggie struggles with her own grief and the task of raising her daughter solo, yet more tragedy strikes right in her own home. What follows is a complex drama with highs, lows and heartfelt lessons along the way.
Author DL Norris has created a really compelling novel that encapsulates so much of the human experience within its relatively short timeframe. I adored the setting of the B&B, which provides a nostalgic atmosphere and a recent historical flavor that’s consistent throughout the storytelling. Against this backdrop of women becoming more independent and the world slowly turning to a new era, Maggie and her daughter Jenna represent so much more than they seem at first glance. The drama and twists that occur in the plot are well-timed to challenge them and take readers up in their emotional sweep, bringing contemporary reliability to another time and place in American history. Overall, The Long Way Home is a highly accomplished work of interpersonal drama which is a recommended read for fans everywhere.
