Healing seems impossible.

Moving on…


I can’t let go of the past. The overwhelming guilt won’t let me. I fight the pain every single day but it’s not getting any easier to carry, and there are days when I wonder if I will ever find happiness.

Or if I even deserve it.

Determined to endure my misery alone, I’ve pushed everyone out of my life, including my best friend, Linc. Now he’s back and he won’t leave without a fight. He’s tearing down my walls and forcing me to face what I’ve kept buried for so long. Because of him, I feel like I can finally breathe again, and there’s a sliver of hope weaving its way into my heart.

Will it be enough to save me from the darkness that threatens to drown me?

Love isn’t always easy.

But it’s always worth it.

Author’s note: The Long Way Home is a new edition of the previously published book titled Sylvie. With the exception of a new cover, blurb, title, and added bonus material all other content remains the same.



**********************************NICUnurse’s Review******************************

This book was previously published as “Sylvie”, and I read the first version right after it was published. I liked it then, so when this author asked people to read the re-release, I was happy to do so.

This book is a romance, but it also is a story about how mental illness affects everyone around the person suffering from such an illness. There are parts that are hard to read. But I felt it was written very well. It was written in a way that showed compassion for the afflicted, as well as those close to him. My favorite scene was when Sylvie found the note from Dean. That alone helped me to have more compassion and understanding for him, and showed me he wasn’t the big jerk I wanted to think he was.

Sylvie and Linc’s story is both beautiful and tragic at times. But I loved that they eventually got their happily ever after. Sometimes the hardest road we travel brings about the biggest happiness at the end. This was so true for both of them.

Even if you’ve read Sylvie, it’s worth the time to read the updated version. It’s sweet and angsty all at the same time.

NICUnurse’s score: 4.5 propellers
