Will North’s bestselling debut The Long Walk Home (ISBN: 978-1-938231-76-6; Literary Fiction; June, 2013) is now re-launched—with a new introduction by the critically acclaimed author—in advance of North’s much-anticipated new title, Season’s End, to be released in Fall of 2013.
It was all about a promise. Alec Hudson is
determined to keep the vow he made to his dying wife, and release her
ashes on a special Welsh mountain. And so, begins Alec’s long walk home,
from Heathrow Airport just outside of London to an obscure mountain
village in Wales. And as he crosses the lush English countryside, he may yet find love, or disaster, roaming within its breathtaking landscapes.
This powerful and heartfelt story is about grief and hope, love and loss, and lovers struggling with the complexities of fidelity—marriage, morality and passion—has been called a literary triumph. Written in North’s inimitable, lyrical style, The Long Walk Home is a haunting treat; a beautiful, captivating narrative that stays with the reader long after the final page is turned.
