The Road Back Home -
The year was 1955. Eisenhower was president and Davy Crockett was every boy's hero. It was an age of innocence and a time when boys wore tight jeans and tee shirts, and the girls wore poodle skirts. For Brody Watson, it was the summer he lost his father, fell in love with a girl, and discovered the sweetness of small town life. For Brody and Earl, the summer of '55 began as an adventure. It was a quest for fun and a need for mischief, and it ended with two teenagers learning a great deal about life. The Road Back Home is a powerful yet poignant story laced with humor and filled with warm sentiment of enduring love.
