Review summary of The Long Way Home by Louise Penny. This is not really a mystery or crime thriller, as such. It is, instead, the story of a quest to find a missing person and in doing so to find one's self. Quite introspective in nature, it's a pleasure indeed reading about the adventure these people are on, and where it leads them. Our rating: 4 of 5 stars.
