About LONG WAY HOME (The Potter’s House Books #4)

Long Way Home (The Potter's House Books #4)Can she forgive the man who once bullied her,
and learn that love keeps no record of wrongs?

Having overcome the crippling insecurities of childhood bullying, Lauren Bauman is eager to start her new job 1,000 miles away, and road-tripping across the country with her brother Nate and his new friend seems to be the perfect way to celebrate the move. But her confidence is shaken when she meets Nate’s friend–the kid who’d bullied her years before, trapping her in a decade-long shell of self-doubt.

For Jet Wurm, losing his job and getting kicked out of his apartment were the best things that ever happened to him. Thanks to the friend who rescued him, he’s finally shedding the loser label he’d worn for years. Nate even invited him along on a cross-country road trip with his sister, and Jet couldn’t be more excited. But then he meets Lauren, and her fearful reaction tells him they must have met before. Where, he can’t recall, but he has no doubt he’d somehow hurt her–like he’d hurt so many others in his past. And now he’s stuck on a six-day road trip with a woman who obviously deplores him.

Though Jet is clearly not the same person who’d bullied her years before, Lauren still struggles to forgive him. But if she doesn’t find the courage to forgive, will that convince Jet he’s as worthless as he’d always been taught to believe? Or will they learn that real love keeps no record of wrongs?

  1. Janet Estridge says:

    I would love to go by train across Canada.
    A room to sleep in, meals you don’t have to cook, and someone else to do the driving.

  2. Kay Garrett says:

    I’d love to go to ALL the great national parks in the United States. We are going to Yellowstone this summer but still so many we haven’t seen yet but would love to. Can you imagine driving through this great nation and seeing all the wonders there are to see!

    • Wouldn’t that be fun?! When you go, I’ll join you, Kay! Yellowstone isn’t that far away from me–just a few states–but I’ve never been there. But now that our kids are all going to be done with college and (hopefully) moving out, my husband and I can do more traveling.

    • I’ve been to Yellowstone National Park, it is an unusual, awesome place to go. Plenty of wildlife if you go during buffalo mating season, keep your eyes open for coyotes and bears. The place is gorgeous, especially Grand Prismatic spring and Morning Glory pool. YOU WILL LOVE IT!

  3. Stephanie H. says:

    I would’ve liked to travel along the famous U.S.Route 66 (which is no longer around) and see the popular sites along the way. So that said, I would still like to see a lot of the historical sites in our beautiful country!

    • That would be fun! I’ve been on a portion of what’s probably the *new* Route 66, by Springfield, MO, but it would be fun to follow the entire road.

      Our country is relatively young, but yet is rich in history. I’ve never been a big history buff, but visiting the sites where events took place always brings history to life.

      Thank you for stopping by, Stephanie!

  4. Debbie says:

    I’d love to visit my children in Montana and Oregon, by way of the train through Canada! That’s always been on my wish list.
    Thanks for the opportunity. Just finishing the Coming Home series, and I hate to see it end.

    • Sounds like a perfect way to travel and a perfect reason to travel! Hope you get to do it some day. 🙂

      And Thank You for reading the Coming Home series! I hated to see it come to an end, too. 🙁 I loved that family!

      But I have a short story, Coming Home, that follows the Coming Home series and bridges those stories with my Potter’s House stories (Free with subscription, or 99¢ purchase). And in my Potter’s House stories, you’ll be reacquainted with many of the characters from my Coming Home series. 🙂

  5. Martha Troxel says:

    I would like to redo some of the trips I have gone on the past: to New York City, San Francisco,Chicago,Arkansas, Washington D.C., New England, and Texas. I think that would keep me pretty busy!

  6. Sherri G says:

    I noticed someone else said she’d like to travel across Canada by train. This is something we talked about doing but never did. It still sounds fun. We went from Chicago to San Francisco by train in the late 90’s and enjoyed it.

  7. emilee says:

    I live in Southern Al. I’ve never been out West. I would head toward the Grand Canyon and stop at all the cool historical landmarks along the way. On to River Walk in San Antonio, then head toward the Pacific Coast Hwy and travel up the Oregon coast. Yellowstone, the Old West historical stops, the Rocky’s, Mesa Verde, Then back East, Amish country, D.C., Boston, Asheville, Savannah, Etc. I love the USA!

  8. This probably sounds weird, but I’d actually like to go through New York state, then through Pennsylvania, (visit Hershey attraction), then through Ohio and Indiana and stay a while near Amish communities. I’ve read many books about Amish life, it sounds fascinating.

    • Not weird at all! New York & Pennsylvania are beautiful! Our family spent a week in Hershey several years back and we didn’t get in half of what we wanted to see. On top of Hershey Park, Hershey Gardens, tour of Hershey, Gettysburg is very close, as is Lancaster County, and I’m sure so much more!

  9. Christina McComiskie says:

    I’d love to rent a Winnebago and just travel across this beautiful country, there is so much I want to see! I take that over a fancy hotel/resort any day!

  10. Deb Galloway says:

    I would go to every state I have friends family in that I haven’t seen for a long time. I would absolutely start with Texas as my daughter & 2 grandchildren are there. I saw my 5 year old grandson when he was 8 months but have never seen my 3 year old granddaughter! That would truly set a beautifully enjoyable trip off to the perfect start!! 🙂

  11. Nancy Clouse says:

    I would love to travel all of New York State. I have lived in N.Y. state all my life and never traveled thru it.

  12. Vivian Furbay says:

    I would like to visit Savannah, GA and Charleston SC as part of this trip and go to Arkansas to visit my sister and her family.

  13. Rebecca Booth says:

    I would love to travel to Colorado Springs, Colorado to see my niece Leigh, who I haven’t seen in 50 years, but keep in touch through phone, Facebook and email! What a reunion that would be!

    • Don’t you love that we’re able to keep in touch with those who live far from us. Technology isn’t always great, but that’s one advance I do love. 🙂

      I hope you are able to visit your niece someday! And Colorado Springs is an amazing place to visit too.
