Description

A family secret, a mysterious legacy, and a journey that will change everything...

When Isla, a 65-year-old grandmother, is left nothing but an old painting in her mother's will, while her sisters and aunt inherit the estate, she is devastated. Close to retirement, getting ready to live on her own terms, the last thing she expects at this time of her life is such turmoil. So, to find an explanation for her mother's rejection, she embarks on a road-trip.

But, right at the last moment, she's forced to take her sullen - and, in her view, impossible - 14-year-old granddaughter Charlie with her. Cramped together in Isla's car with her smelly old dog, these ill-assorted travelling companions set off to uncover some shattering and life-changing family truths at the same time as learning to love each other...

The Long Way Home is set in the UK and 1950s Paris where the story really begins, span ning four generations of women and the secrets that get passed down through them.
