Stevie hasn't set foot in his home town for years, and he can't decide whether to let his family--what's left of them, anyway--know he's back. He wasn't the first to cut and run--in their own ways, his mother, his father, and his uncle all fled before he did--but should he be the first to come home?Moving between Stevie's life as a construction worker in present-day Glasgow and the story of his parents when they were young, The Walk Home is a heartbreakingly powerful novel about the risks of love, and the madness and betrayals that can split a family. Gripping, haunting and, ultimately, hopeful, here is a piercingly honest story about the journey home--and the people there waiting for you.
