Book Blog Tour for Long Drive Home

Glen Bauer writes a letter to his daughter, asking her for forgiveness. But Glen’s not even sure he deserves it. You see, Glen killed a man. He didn’t intend to, but accidents do happen…

Long Drive Home by Will Allison is an incredibly tortured narrative told in the first person from Glen’s point of view. It’s the type of tense and emotional story that stays with you long after the last page has been read.

Mr. Allison explores a very uncomfortable subject. In all honesty, the tragically pivotal moment in this book could happen to any of us. None of us are perfect. One little slip, one single lapse in judgment can change a person’s life forever, sometimes for the worse.

Long Drive Home tells the tale of a man, running from his guilt and hoping to find absolution at the end of the road. Does he find it? Sorry -- no spoilers here!

  2. Hi Donna,
    Thanks for stopping by. :)
    I can't wait to read your review and start following your blog, too!

  3. Wow - that sounds quite intense! I have to admit most of my reads lately have been quite light-hearted fun, perhaps it's about time I read something a little heavier! This could be it!!

  4. Thanks Book Gatherer!
    Yes, it was definitely intense, but it was a very fast read.
    It's a haunting tale that sticks with you even after you're done reading it.

  5. Yvonne, thanks or dropping by my blog at WV Stitcher. I really enjoyed reading your review, and totally agree that this book certainly stays with you long after the final page, and I think the reason for me is because it deals with a situation that could easily happen to anyone. I am now following your blog and look forward to reading more of your reviews.
