Publisher Description

Meet the Grogans

Before there was Marley, there was a gleefully mischievous boy navigating his way through the seismic social upheaval of the 1960s. On the one side were his loving but comically traditional parents, whose expectations were clear. On the other were his neighborhood pals and all the misdeeds that followed. The more young John tried to straddle these two worlds, the more spectacularly, and hilariously, he failed. Told with Grogan's trademark humor and affection, The Longest Trip Home is the story of one son's journey into adulthood to claim his place in the world. It is a story of faith and reconciliation, breaking away and finding the way home again, and learning in the end that a family's love will triumph over its differences.

A lovely story

A good read. Well done.

Great read for Catholics

This book resonated with me since I was raised Catholic like John. I found myself crying when he lost his father. Identified with the guilt too.

The Longest Road Home

A delightful book, telling the story of growing up in a traditional home, that experiences heartaches and happiness. It was difficult to put it down without a yearning to get back to it ASAP.
