In an arrestingly vivid novel spanning seven decades and two continents, bestselling author Rochelle Alers chronicles one woman’s remarkable journey from a cloistered 1950s Mississippi town founded by formerly enslaved people to the striking diversity of Paris and Rome in the 1960s and 70s, through the flashy glamour of 1980s Wall Street, to present day New York. Take The Long Way Home is an unforgettably moving, epic story of love and loss, overcoming adversity, and the fierce determination of a singular woman as she rises from the restraints of the Jim Crow South to build a remarkable life throughout some of history’s most turbulent eras—and the four men who challenge her to fight for happiness along the way.
