The Road Home Michael Thomas Ford read online review & book description:

When a car accident leaves photographer Burke Crenshaw in need of temporary full-time care, he finds himself back in the one place no forty-year-old chooses to be--his childhood bedroom. There, in the Vermont home where he grew up, Burke begins the long process of recuperation, and watches as his widowed father finds happiness in a new relationship that's a constant reminder of everything Burke wants and lacks.

Exploring local history, Burke discovers an intriguing series of letters from a Civil War soldier to his fiancé. With the help of librarian Sam Guffrey, he begins to research a 125-year-old mystery that seems to be reaching into the present day. The more Burke delves into the past, the more he's forced to confront the person he has become: the choices he made and those he avoided, his ideas of what it takes to be a successful gay man, his feelings about his mother's death, and the suppressed tension that simmers between himself and his father.

Compelling, frankly funny, and often wise, The Road Home is the story of one man's coming to terms with who he is, what he wants out of life, and where he belongs--and the complex, surprising path that finally takes him there.

"Piercingly accurate and sweetly hopeful." --Booklist

"An involving. . .narrative about the importance of being true to one's self." --Publishers Weekly

  • Enjoyable and light

    This is a nice beach read. It is intelligent and fun and moves well. However, it also might feel a little predictable and slick by the end. I did like this book but was hungry for a deeper more compelling experience than it ultimately gave me. It is likable and worthwhile as long as your expectations are not too high.
