About the Book

The Road Home is the follow-up to Kathleen Shoop’s award-winning debut novel The Last Letter. Inspired by real letters shared between her great-great grandparents, the series is rooted with raw emotion and visual descriptions that make the characters come alive. 

Twin siblings Katherine and Tommy Arthur are filled with pain as they adjust to their conflicted emotions about their mother’s recent passing. But as tearful mourners attend their mother’s funeral, the twins begin to hear stories that leave them questioning the circumstances of their upbringing. Perhaps there were reasons beyond their understanding that forced their mother to take the actions she did, and the twins are thrust back into memories of their past as they embark down the road to forgiveness.
