About eighteen months ago, I wrote a book review on The Long Way Home. the debut novel of author Judah Knight. I enjoyed reading the book and gave it a favorable rating, stating I was looking forward to reading Book Two. Here’s part of my review:
“When you read the book it will be obvious why the author chose the title, The Long Way Home. The story is about the hero and heroine taking the “long way home.” Had Mr. Knight desired a subtitle, “The Long Way Home: Adventures on the High Seas” would have captured the complete story. The hero and heroine, Jon and Meg, encountered a myriad of circumstances while on the seas. A 17th century shipwrecked Spanish galleon, the discovery of gold, worth thousands of dollars, dangers of the sea world and terrorists delayed their trip over and over. These same circumstances will keep you up reading late into the night as the suspense builds from page to page and from chapter to chapter.”
Mr. Knight has rewritten The Long Way Home and he has written Book Two, Hope For Tomorrow. In rewriting The Long Way Home, he took part of that story and added it to Hope for Tomorrow. The result? An excellent series!
The Long Journey Home still contains all of the excitement, suspense and just a touch of romance found in the original version. The new version is leaner and tighter – making the suspense and excitement more dramatic.
Even if you have read the original version, I highly recommend you read the new version. You will be on the edge of your seat throughout The Long Way Home and ready to dive into (pun intended) Hope for Tomorrow.
