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.
