Reviewer: Christine Davis
Warm, powerful and unforgettable, Irish Times best-selling author Carmel Harrington’s new novel is about second chances, friendship and unlikely heroes.
‘Where is home?’ DJ asked.
‘Wherever the people you love are.’ Ruth replied.
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. But together, these three ordinary people will do an extraordinary thing…
How does the world look to you? Through the eyes of Irish author Carmel Harrington’s characters in her new book “A Thousand Roads Home” the world takes on different meanings.
One man sees the world through the eyes of the homeless and lost. One woman sees the world through the uncontrollable confusion of autism. And a young boy finds the world an unstable place where home is hard to find.
My heart was captured by this compelling story of what home is and where to find it. This book illustrates how fragile people can be when life’s more difficult moments breaks down the human spirit. Then those same broken pieces can be scraped back together with loyalty & love!
This book has the capability of delivering one into a story more completely, with insightful views, like not many other books or authors I have read.
Pick a road, any road, just make sure it leads you down the path to purchasing a copy of this amazing book! I found myself, thanking myself, for buying this memorable tale!
