Publisher's Summary

When two bicycles collide at the end of a driveway in 1993, three lives are changed forever.   

Katelyn (Kat) Summers’ family has just moved to Webster, Massachusetts. It’s the day before her 12th birthday, and all Katelyn wants to do is go back home to Pennsylvania. That is until a 10-year-old boy named Neil Masters crashes into her bicycle. When Katelyn looks up from her position on the ground, she finds a hand stretched out to greet her. As she’s pulled to her feet, Katelyn meets with the inquisitive gaze of Sarah Masters. Within minutes, Katelyn will never think of any other place as home again.   

Best friends from the moment they meet, Katelyn and Sarah are inseparable. Looking in, they have an idyllic life in a quaint New England community. But, life is not always as simple and charming as it seems. It’s messy. As the pair of friends grow, so do their feelings - Sarah’s for Katelyn, and Katelyn’s for Sarah’s brother, Neil.   

Sarah has spent her life loving Kat at a distance. Once her best friend, Kat has now become Sarah’s sister-in-law. While Sarah struggles to let go of Kat, Kat yearns to hold onto Sarah’s presence in her life. Through ups and downs, hopes and dreams, celebrations and disappointments, Katelyn and Sarah struggle to maintain the bond they formed in childhood.  

There are lessons in everything; in the paths taken, and the paths left behind. An unexpected fork in Kat’s road will challenge their entire family. Time has a way of revealing the truth. If you are willing to listen, and to speak it, life has a way of leading you All the Way Home.

A new favorite!!

I have a select few audios I listen to over and over. I get addicted to the stories, the scenarios, the whole thing. THIS is gonna be one of those I listen to repeatedly!! The only thing that bugged me was the painstakingly long time for them to get together, even though it made the scene where they finally get together THAT much worthwhile. I just hated seeing Sarah put through that much pain for so long. But love love love this book!!!

Can listen/read over and over again

I first read the book when it came out. I couldn’t put it down. Stepping into the lives of Sarah, Cat, and Neal had me laughing, crying, happy, sad, and mad. When I heard it was in Audio, I had to get it. I am happy I did. Jill Smith brings life to these characters, making you feel that you are in the story.
I highly recommend all readers/listeners to get All the Way Home. Just beware that you may lose sleep because you had to read/listen to one more chapter.

Two skilled storytellers

Jill Smith is a brilliant narrator for a full and heartfelt story by Nancy Ann Healy. I enjoyed the book and the Audible version is even richer.

Good Book

The story was good how the relationship went through childhood to adulthood. I think it took too long for Sarah and Kat to be together, and felt so sorry for Sarah and the pain she was in when Kat is with her brother Neil, I did not like the brother Neil at all.

The narrator did a fantastic job of the voices.
