Chris is a journalist, and most of his assignment take him
out of the country and away from his teenage daughter Megan. Megan
problems with her
mother. She doesn't care for her step-father or step-brothers, and
finds out they will be moving
because of her step-father's job. Megan begs her father to
let her live with him. Chris agrees, but he will have to
give up the job he loves. Chris gives up the job he loves, and now
he has to
figure out how to
support them. His mom, Bunny, suggests that Chris and Megan should
her for a while. Chris is not sure if he wants to move
back to his home town, but with no other choice they do.
When Bunny was
younger, she went overseas to help poor families, and she's been
invited to a
reunion. She feels it would be a great idea
for Chris to write a book about the five other people who
went with her. Maybe this would start a new career for Chris.
While Chris is interviewing these men, secrets start to
come out, and as Chris continues to investigate, he
finds his family could be in danger.
I really love the way
the Di Morrissey describes the scenery. THE ROAD BACK is set
mostly in a small town, and Ms. Morrissey shows how small towns
stick together and help each other out as much as they can. Friends
you grew up
with will always be there for you.
She also shows how a father and daughter can bond after
being apart for so many years. I love this book. THE ROAD BACK
thumbs up from me. THE ROAD BACK by Di Morrissey is one of those
