    In Let's Take the Long Way Home, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Gail Caldwell offers a powerful and moving memoir about her coming-of-age in mid-life and her extraordinary friendship with Caroline Knapp, the author of Drinking: A Love Story. Though they are more different than alike, these two fiercely private, independent women quickly relax into a friendship more profound than either of them expected. They grow increasingly inseparable until, in 2003, Caroline is diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer.

    "My Story"
    Overall

    I loved every word of this book. I've been there, done it, even to a Rottweiler attack on my standard poodle while we walked. I have an extraordinary circle of women friends who watch my back, love me and tell me the truth. From one Texas gal to another, I am a fan of Gail Caldwell. Her voice is my voice...Thank you.

    After five hectic years of retirement from Lord's Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors. While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he's offered one, he decides he doesn't want it. Maybe he's lost his passion. His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion - for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner, and his vision to become a successful country vet.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John McDonough?

    I don't know...someone more ...? just could not listen...I tried..I had read the books.


    Could you see Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
