Om Long Road Home
'We are strangers who meet in hell,' she'd written to him in her first letter: 'We need hide nothing from one another.' But now that hell has disappeared, it might not be so easy not to hide. A Long Road Home follows the love and brief laughter, the silences and the haunting of a couple returning from the 'Great War' - Harry and Annie who find their old worlds no longer relevant to their experience. They have to create new lives for themselves, first in a Mexico recovering from civil war, then in Italy - where they will witness and experience the rise of fascism and its brutality. For Harry these are also years when conscience and retribution pursue him. For during that Great War he had committed murder: he knew, Annie knew and the Emma Pips also know. Is his old enemy, redcap Ginger, not still hunting him down? Part 2 of 5 in the Harry Cardwell Series.
