The Long Way Home by Karen McQuestion
Three strangers have one thing in common, they’re always dealt the bad hand and constantly hoping for something better, but then there’s Jazzy, who’s bubbly and happy, the total opposite. After a chance meeting, the four women set off on a road trip to Las Vegas to get back one of their sons and all four end up on a moving journey.
In One Person by John Irving
Irving crafts such beautiful sentences that you’ll want to reread them out loud just so you can hear them, and his latest 400+ page novel tells the story of Billy, who struggles with his identity, which means society struggles to accept him. Starting from Billy’s formative years in the 60s, and following through to the end of his days, the book makes you realise life is never black and white.
