A NOVEL FULL OF HUMOR AND HOPE FOR FINDING YOURSELF WHERE YOU LEAST EXPECTED

Sean has spent twenty years in Third World war zones and natural disaster areas, fully embracing what he'd always felt was his life's mission. But when burnout sets in, Sean is reluctantly drawn home to Belham, Massachusetts, the setting of Fay's much-loved Shelter Me . There, he discovers that his steely aunt, overly dramatic sister, and quirky nephew are having a little natural disaster of their own. When he reconnects with a woman from his past, Sean has to wonder if the bonds of love and loyalty might just rewrite his destiny. Completely relatable, The Shortest Way Home is another perfect serving of a slice of life from the irresistible Fay.

I truly loved this book, in no small part because we have Huntington's Disease in the family. There is so much doom and gloom in the world, especially when we have information like our medical history, but this book manages to focus on the real stuff, the life lived along the way, in such a terrific way. I want all my HD family to read it, too! Again, loved this book.

What do you do when you've not only been running away from your family, but have completely exhausted your emotional reserves helping people in desperate situations abroad. Do you accept a new life for yourself, cobbled from pieces of the old and new, or do you just try to find a way to return back to those highs & lows helping people in desperate places. Really well written.
