The Long Road Home
Author: Mary Lynch
Publication Date: 10 September 2010
The Long Road Home is the story of Mary Lynch’s journey back to acknowledging the pain and terror of her youthful experiences in what was effectively a war zone. Only then could she heal and move on. At another level, this book is about healing the pain of a nation by acknowledging its sense of abandonment and loss. Anyone who has ever suffered trauma will recognise and take solace from Mary’s inspiring story.
Writing in the South Belfast News, author Jude Collins wrote of The Long Road Home: ‘Mary Lynch’s story is not unique but that very fact makes it all the more poignant. She speaks for thousands as she tells her story.’
