This book contains the conversion stories of men and women who, as a result of thier surrender to Jesus Christ, heard a call to follow Him more completely. Many of them were Protestant pastors, or missionaries. Others were laymen who, though working in secular jobs, took their calling to serve Christ in the world very seriously. These men and women all discovered Jesus Christ in some branch of Protestantism, yet in each case, their desire to follow Christ faithfully, and to remain faithful to the truth He taught and the Church he established through His apostles, led them to consider the claims of the Catholic Church.

I-15 for two months waiting for the car he knew would bring him home --Eddie, the beagle, who walked 450 miles over four months to reunite with disabled four-year-old Jimmy, inspiring the boy to work harder on his own recovery.

Young Francis Hanrahan dreams desperately of a life different from that of his country-born, suburban-living parents. On his first day at his first job Francis makes his first real friend. Shay, a would-be older brother, introduces "Hano" to Dublin's appealingly seedy after-hours bars and drug-fueled parties. They are joined by Cait, a troubled teenager who spends her days in a stupor. But the noir thrills of underground Dublin cannot conceal the unemployment, corruption, and violence strangling the city. The Plunkett brothers, masters of "the subtle everyday corruption on which a dynasty was built" will use the friends—with tragic results. Torn between his friends, his family, and his own ideals, Hano ultimately falls victim to these powerful forces and commits a heinous crime. He flees through the countryside with Cait, wondering, as he narrates the events that set him on this path, if there is a home at the end of it. Controversial for its gritty portrait of Dublin in the 1980s, The Journey Home is Dermot Bolger's unflinching look at the personal cost of social progress, and those, innocent or not, lost during the journey.

In Journeys Home, Dick Monteith has created an authentic and heartfelt story of three South Carolina boys who grew up together in a small town in the Low country. It follows the trajectory of each as they go off to different colleges, pursue different passions, and end up having very different lives. One becomes a wealthy realtor, another a progressive politician and a third eventually becomes a liberal Presbyterian minister. The novel is in part about how the boys’ lives were shaped by Vietnam, the civil rights struggle, the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, and more. Yet this isn’t a history book. It’s a story that we can’t help getting caught up in. It’s a novel full of embodied, well-delineated characters who not only are a product of the times, but who go about the business of being themselves, making good choices and bad. As I read this novel, I found myself caring more and more about these boys and what happened to them and their families. Time and time again my heart went out to them. In the end, what more can we ask of a writer? Tommy Hays Creative Writing Professor, UNC-Asheville and author of The Pleasure Was Mine and In the Family Way

Long Journeys Home

In the modern history of American veterans, it is sometimes difficult to separate myth from fact. The men and women who served in World War II are routinely praised as heroes; the "Greatest Generation," after all, triumphed over fascism and successfully reentered postwar society. Veterans of the Vietnam War, on the other hand, occupy a different thread in the postwar narrative, sometimes as a threat to society but usually as victims of it; these vets returned home to a combination of disdain, fear, and prolonged suffering. And until very recently, both the public and historians have largely overlooked veterans of the Korean War altogether; the hit television show M*A*S*H was set in Korea but was more about Vietnam. Long Journeys Home explores the veteran experience of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. It examines and dissects the various myths that have grown up around each of these wars. Author Michael D. Gambone compares and contrasts the basic elements of each narrative, including the factors that influenced the decision to enlist, the impact of combat on life after the war, the struggles of postwar economic adjustment, and participation in (or withdrawal from) social and political activism. Gambone does not treat these veterans monolithically but instead puts each era's veterans in historical context. He also explores the nuances of race, gender, and class. Despite many differences, some obvious and some not, Gambone nonetheless finds a great deal of continuity, and ultimately concludes that Korean and Vietnam veterans have much more in common with the Greatest Generation than was previously understood.
