About the Author
Fiona McCallum was raised on a cereal and wool farm near Cleve on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula and remained in the area until her mid-twenties, during which time she married and separated. She then moved to Melbourne and on to Sydney a few years later.
An avid reader and writer, Fiona returned to full-time study as a mature-age student and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in professional writing and editing and a second major in history in 2000. She then began a consultancy providing writing and editing services to the corporate sector. While studying, and then working, Fiona found herself drawn to writing fiction where her keen observation of people and their everyday lives could be combined with her love of storytelling.
Now a full-time novelist, Fiona writes heart-warming stories that draw on her rich and contrasting life experiences, love of animals and fascination with human nature. Her first novel, Paycheque, was published in 2011 and became a bestseller. In the nine years since, Fiona has written another ten bestselling novels: Nowhere Else, Wattle Creek, Saving Grace, Time Will Tell, Meant To Be, Leap of Faith, Standing Strong, Finding Hannah, Making Peace and A Life of Her Own. The Long Road Home is Fiona's twelfth novel.
Fiona currently resides in suburban Adelaide.

Part 1: Alice, divorced and recently out of another relationship, has settled in Ballarat into a tiny home with her beloved dog. She is pursuing a law career and is drawing new people around her, so she can leave behind the toxic family that has shaped her poor self esteem and killed her joie de vivre. There is a wonderfully drawn description of life with a narcissist.
She has met Blair, hobby craftsman and farm manager to mutual friends. The spark of attraction appears mutual, yet he is holding back. More on them later...
Part 2: Rick has never felt loved or appreciated by his parents, though he has worked hard on the family sheep run. After a death in the family, he is shocked by the lies and betrayal that is revealed. It sets him on a journey of discovery that takes him to Ballarat.
Seeing his ex wife, Alice and meeting her friends, opens up connections that are unexpected and ultimately he finds the answers he seeks and the love of his life.
The epilogue rounds out the questions and hopes that readers would be holding out for. A happy ending for everyone.
