Elizabeth Musser has long been a favorite with my book club. We began our journey with her in The Swan House and have since read many of her novels. With her being an Atlanta native and setting many of her books there, we have enjoyed a couple of field trips as well, visiting places she mentions in her books. When I heard she had a new book out, I had to include it as a surprise selection. The Long Highway Home was an excellent choice for our group, and I believe will be for yours as well. We love, love, loved it!

The Long Highway Home is a very complex novel involving multiple characters and story lines. But it is not a difficult book to read. Once you get into the flow of the shifting points of view, the stories take off and you find yourself immersed in the characters’ journeys. Each has a unique viewpoint and story that adds depth and insight. And I loved how all the threads intersected with each other in miraculous, yet very believable ways. In fact, Musser has a sentence that describes that (and real life) well — But every now and then the Lord pulls back a curtain-slice of sky and we get to see the bringing together of all the plot lines in real time!

The subject matter is refugees, specifically Muslim refugees making their way to Europe. The time is 2005, and the majority of the refugees are men. We felt the issue was handled with truth and grace. The hardships they faced — from the distrust and animosity of locals to the suspicions and threats from fellow refugees — were not sugar-coated, but handled in an honest manner. The Oasis, the refugee mission in the book, is a real place and the Mussers work with those who lead the ministry there. Her passion is obvious throughout the book.

The power of the gospel to transform lives is beautifully illustrated in The Long Highway Home, as is the means God uses to draw people to Himself. Although it is a work of fiction, many of the ministries and people were drawn from real life, giving it a greater authenticity. Because of this, the novel is perfect for book clubs or missions groups.

Beautifully written, authentic characters, a meaningful message — The Long Highway Home has it all. It is also a suspenseful read with a dash of romance that you will not want to put down. It gets a highly recommended rating from my group.

Highly Recommended.

Audience: adults.

Great for book clubs.

een beklijvend verhaald van een vluchtelingengezin uit Iran. Beklijvend omdat je als lezer mee in de huid kruipt van de vluchetling en alle emoties, ontberingen maar ook ontluistering die ermee gepaard gaan. ( )
