Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author of A Room of My Own and A Place Called Morning, Ann Tatlock delivers a soul-searching inspirational story of faith and friendship.

Augie Schuler, a red-headed and freckled Irish girl, is living through a dim and depressing childhood. She is grateful for her one true friendship with Sunny Yamagata and Sunny's Japanese family. Through this gift from God, Augie is able to experience glimpses of happiness. But then on December 7, 1941, the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor. Suddenly the girls are torn apart, and the world around them changes. Many years go by, until one day they are reunited. How can their friendship ever be the same when so much time has passed?

From the voice of 10-year-old Augie come innocence and faith. From the voice of an adult Augie come understanding and survival. Tatlock explores difficult subjects with sensitivity and tenderness, while Christina Moore's compassionate narration captures the love and hope of two courageous women.

What the Critics Say

"Tatlock adeptly traces the girls' journey of faith with a light and sometimes humorous touch. She does an excellent job juxtaposing the horrors of Americans in Japanese hands and Japanese-Americans in the hands of their countrymen. Tatlock employs flashbacks efficiently, and her rich descriptions and characterizations are unusually fresh and inventive. Other Christian novelists would do well to emulate this quality contribution." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Never wanted to put down my headphones"

    I really enjoyed this book. It kept my interest and had great character depth. Inspiring and wonderful reading that was very enjoyable from beginning to end. Not a book that takes several chapters to get into. From the very beginning I found myself not wanting to put down my headphones.

    "A lovely book."

    You will fall in love with the characters, I miss them already. The narration was first rate. An all around enjoyable book and one that compells you to question your own stand on many issues. A good novel not only entertains but also teaches, and I learned a great many things about World War II and the fight for civil rights in the South that I never knew.

    Story
    "Thought-provoking, gripping, wonderful"
    What other book might you compare All the Way Home to and why?

    It has some parallels with her other books "A Room of My Own" and "Promises to Keep" but it shines brightest on its own


    Have you listened to any of Christina Moore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to many of Christina MOore's other performances, and she is one of my favorite narrators. This one ranks right up at the top


    If you could take any character from All the Way Home out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I loved all of Sunny's family members... separating them out would be impossible!


    Any additional comments?

    This is Ann Tatlock's best book. I smiled, I cried... it moved me deeply.

    "Opening our eyes"

    Today we see our life after 9/11 and forget the history of the United States (US). In All the Way Home the view of a child is the most powerful story to me. My parents and grandparents shared how they felt during WW II. What they failed to share was the side of US that was well written and shared with me during the reading of this book. My husband has taught me we still fight the small minds of today in our daily lives. This book allowed me time to see back just a few years to what others endured. I am delighted to have shared the moments in time that open ones mind to the world of action and not hide our past or suger coat how we as a nation seperated and unjustly treated our fellow Americans.

    This is a fine book that becomes a tour de force with one of the best narrations I've heard, and I listen to audiobooks every day.

    "Wonderfully written"

    The author give such a rich feeling to the environment and the characters, that you become totally engrossed in their lives and their story. The descriptive details give educational facts while drawing you into the plight of these two young women and their families. A truly great book, I am looking forward to listening to more from this author!

    "It got better and better"

    As the story began, I wasn't sure it was my kind of book. As it developed, I couldn't turn it off. Very thought provoking. I loved it!

    "Great story until a bland ending"

    Interesting first person fictional look at both the Japanese internment of WWII and the civil rights movement of the 1960's. Unfortunately, at the end, the book becomes a bland and pattern love story ending. Great until the last few chapters.
