Stevie hasn't set foot in his home town for years, and he can t decide whether to let his family what's left of them, anyway know he's back. He wasn t the first to cut and run in their own ways, his mother, his father, and his uncle all fled before he did but should he be the first to come home?
Moving between Stevie's life as a construction worker in present-day Glasgow and the story of his parents when they were young, "The Walk Home" is a heartbreakingly powerful novel about the risks of love, and the madness and betrayals that can split a family. Gripping, haunting and, ultimately, hopeful, here is a piercingly honest story about the journey home and the people there waiting for you.
