—Library Journal, starred review
“Fans of Fay’s first novel, Shelter Me (2009), will spot a familiar face in Sean’s hometown, and readers old and new will fall in love with the flawed, endearing cast of characters. A beautifully written novel infused with Fay’s generous spirit.”
“Fay’s third novel (after Deep Down True) is a touching exploration of a damaged family working to repair itself, with universal appeal.”
“Full of humorous and tender moments as well as subtle revelations, The Shortest Way Home is a quietly powerful exploration of one man's journey back to himself.”
“The Shortest Way Home is as complex and full of surprises as the well-examined life. This is one beautiful novel, rich with depth and heart.”
—Julianna Baggott, bestselling author of Pure
“The Shortest Way Home is Juliette Fay’s best yet and shows us that loving the people in your life can be as exciting, as daring, as difficult an adventure as any.”
—Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Falling Together and Love Walked In

collection we call ‘family.’”

—Amy Hatvany, author of Best Kept Secret and Outside the Lines
“A touching and engrossing story about the lengths to which we’ll go to avoid where we’re meant to be, and the way the heart leads us gently back.”
—Nichole Bernier, author of The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D.
“A smart, sincere look at the meaning of home, the complicated nature of family ties, and how the things we run from are often what we need the most."

“Heartfelt... Juliette Fay does a wonderful job creating this quirky, lovable cast of characters finding their way in life and love.”
—Shilpi Somaya Gowda, New York Times bestselling author of Secret Daughter
"Powerful, beautifully written, and at times heartbreaking… a meditation on the impossibility and the inevitability of finding our way home.”
—Julie Buxbaum, author of After You
This is the story of a man who has dedicated his life to helping others.
When I realized that I could finish the book at my next sitting, I actually waited to read it because I didn't want it to end!
I once again found myself captivated by the story and the vivid characters so beautifully developed by Ms. Fay.
This book was a little slow for me at first, perhaps due to things going on in my life, but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Sandra
