The Long Walk Home

A Novel


When Fiona Edwards first sees the lankybackpacker striding up the lane toward her award-winning farmhousebed-and-breakfast in the remote mountains of North Wales, she’s puzzled. She’sused to unexpected strangers, but few arrive on foot. The man to whom she opensher door is middle-aged, unshaven, sweat-soaked … and arrestingly handsome.What neither of them knows at that moment is that their lives are about tochange forever.

American Alec Hudson has carried the ashes—and the memory—of hislate ex-wife, Gwynne, all the way from London’s Heathrow Airport, honoring herrequest that he scatter them atop a mountain they had climbed together yearsbefore, the same brooding peak whose jagged cliffs rise to the sky from theback pastures of Fiona’s farm. But the weather doesn’t cooperate, and as Fionaand Alec wait for it to clear, they are drawn together by mutual loss, longing,and the miracle of love at midlife.

On the day he finally reaches the summit,Alec is caught in a vicious hailstorm. As he struggles to descend, he stumblesupon the body of a man he recognizes from a photograph at the farm: it isFiona’s ailing and reclusive husband, David, and he is close to death.

WillNorth’s debut novel is a story about grief and hope, about love and loss, andabout two people struggling with the agonizing complexities of fidelity—to aspouse, to a moral code, to each other, and to a passion neither thought wouldever appear again. By turns lyrical and gripping, set amid a landscape ofbreathtaking beauty and unpredictable danger, this is a story you will not soonforget.
