Product description

Review

''Love that comes along too late -- and thus is doomed by the prior commitments of an honorable life -- is dangerous territory, veering close to the precipice of bathos. Will North's debut novel The Long Walk Home stays the course; and the results are genuine, tender and affecting.'' --Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean and Still Summer

''North's bittersweet, romantic novel has invited some early comparisons with the bestselling work of Nicholas Sparks and Robert James Waller.'' --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

''The Long Walk Home movingly conveys the life-changing effects of love between two middle-age people with a lot of unshared history.'' --Seattle Times

''How we perceive love and acknowledge its obligations is at the core of this first novel by ghostwriter North. . . If visions of Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep come to mind, which they did briefly for this reviewer, the similarity to Robert Waller's The Bridges of Madison County ends there. Fi and Alec do share an immediate connection, but their witty exchanges and the fascinating descriptions of climbing, cooking (yes, Alec can do it in the kitchen), and lambing are absorbing from the very first. Alec has experienced loss and doesn't want any more of it; Fi accepts that her dreams might have to remain just that. . .a joy to read.'' --Library Journal

''[A] lyrical first novel about love and loss. . . North offers vivid descriptions of the Welsh countryside, capturing its local dialect, flora and fauna, and wild weather. . .if Nicholas Sparks set a novel in North Wales, it would read a lot like this!'' --Publishers Weekly

''A brilliantly realized romance...'' --The Strand Book Store, NYC

''The Long Walk Home features some astute observations about the nature of the human condition, where fear of chaos, the collapse of order, and the triumph of confusion and tragedy can sometimes threaten to overtake us. Conversely, this enormously heartrending novel also tells us much about the unalterable, inexplicable power of love.'' --Curled Up with a Good Book

''A story crafted with a charming locale, sensitive insights, and engaging action.'' -- Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

Product Description

When unhappily married Fiona Edwards answers the door of her farmhouse bed and breakfast, she discovers a tall man shouldering a hulking backpack. He is unshaven, sweat-soaked...but arrestingly handsome.

American Alec Hudson has carried the ashes of his ex-wife from London's Heathrow Airport to the mountains of North Wales. Honoring her request to scatter them atop the towering mountain directly behind Fiona’s farm, he attempts to fulfill her wish, but the weather stops him.

As Alec waits for safer conditions, he and Fiona are drawn together by loss and by a passion neither thought would ever reappear in their lives. When Alec stumbles upon something he never expected to see, he is faced with a series of choices he hoped never to make.

An evocative story of honorable people struggling with the complexities of fidelity, and of the hope for a second chance at love.
