Description

Will North's bestselling debut 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 determined to keep the vow he made to his dying wife—to release her ashes on a Welsh mountain. And so, began Alec Hudson'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. Written in North's inimitable lyrical style, The Long Walk Home is a triumph; a beautiful, captivating narrative that stays with the reader long after the final page is turned.

      • bioText:

        Will North came to fiction late in his career and almost by accident, when an event in his own life led to a story, which led to a book—The Long Walk Home—which received enthusiastic national reviews. Another acclaimed novel, Water, Stone, Heart, followed the next year. Both are set in the British countryside which has always felt like home to him. His latest novel, Seasons' End, is set on an island in Washington's Puget Sound near Seattle where he lives with his wife and their Shepherd/Lab rescue dog, Baxter. A fourth novel, Harm None, the first in a series of murder mysteries, will be published in early 2014. Set in the ancient and magical county of Cornwall, England the new series features Detective Inspector Morgan Davies and Scene of Crimes manager Calum West. The second book in that series, Too Clever By Half, will be published in the fall of 2014.
