Publisher's Summary

"No matter where you go, no matter whether you succeed or fail, stand or fall, no gone is too far gone. You can always come home."
At the age of 18, musician and songwriter Cooper O'Connor took everything his father held dear and drove 1,200 miles from home to Nashville, his life riding on a six-string guitar and the bold wager that he had talent. But his wager soon proved foolish.
Five years after losing everything, he falls in love with Daley Cross, an angelic voice in need of a song. But just as he realizes his love for Daley, Cooper faces a tragedy that threatens his life as well as his career. With nowhere else to go, he returns to his remote home in the Colorado mountains, searching for answers about his father and his faith.
When Daley shows up on his street corner 20 years later, he wonders if it's too late to tell her the truth about his past - and if he is ready to face it.
A radical retelling of the story of the prodigal son, Long Way Gone takes us from tent revivals to the Ryman Auditorium to the tender relationship between a broken man and the father who never stopped calling him home.

Charles Martin has really "let it out."

This book is his best one ever in my opinion. And I have been greatly blessed by reading (listening) to all but a few of his works. It is hard for me the express my thoughts about a book by a man who expresses his so masterfully. I loved this book. And oh, the ending! Wow! To borrow the catch phrase of his characters, he "l e t i t o u t!" I wanted to say AMEN at the very end of his prologue. What a message of hope.
Adam Verner did a masterful job in making the characters and events come alive. Superb job.

Another inspirational, exceptional story from Charles Martin. I have never read a book he has written and not been touched soul deep. I can't wait for the next book.
