“No matter where you go, no matter whether you succeed or fail, stand or fall, no gone is too far gone. You can always come home.”
At the age of eighteen, musician and songwriter Cooper O’Connor took everything his father held dear and drove 1,200 miles from home to Nashville, his life riding on a six-string guitar and the bold wager that he had talent. But his wager soon proved foolish.
Five years after losing everything, he falls in love with Daley Cross, an angelic voice in need of a song. But just as he realizes his love for Daley, Cooper faces a tragedy that threatens his life as well as his career. With nowhere else to go, he returns home to the remote Colorado mountains, searching for answers about his father and his faith.
When Daley shows up on his street corner twenty years later, he wonders if it’s too late to tell her the truth about his past—and if he is ready to face it himself.
A radical retelling of the prodigal son story, Long Way Gone takes us from tent revivals to the Ryman Auditorium to the tender relationship between a broken man and the father who never stopped calling him home.
- Will stretch your heart !
I love Charles Martin’s books. So far, I have “read” 2 , and plan to read everything he writes. He has great insights and creativity !
- Great story and narrating
Long Way Home captivated me from beginning to end. Charles Martin has such a way with words and images. I can't wait to read more of his books. And Adam Verner's narration was outstanding.
- Like all Charles Martin books, outstanding!!!
As my favorite author, Charles Martin did not fail my expectations. The narrator did a great job of reading the story and adding his personality to the story.
It's a story that unfolds gradually and, as always with Martin, leaves the ending a surprise until you get there. I'd recommend any of his books to anyone who wants a great human story.
