On the Way Home

A beautiful LDS romance, available now from Eagle Gate, a Deseret Book imprint

Check out Chapter One!

As a young widow and devoted mother, London Elliott is determined to support her two children however she can—even if it’s just by delivering newspapers. So when London hears a call for help early one morning, she rushes to Elsie Moffat’s aid, an elderly LDS woman who has suffered a heart attack in her home. That selfless act introduces London to new beliefs and new people, including fireman Brad Stevenson.

It also raises a number of questions: Can London reconcile the painful parts of her past and find love again? Why do warmth and kindness seem to emanate from Elsie, who treats London like a loving mother? And why is London so drawn to the photograph of Elsie’s son, Ammon?

An unexpected inheritance leads London on a cross-country journey and even more questions. By saving another’s life, will London actually find her own?

Just in case you’re wondering, here are a few answers to questions I get asked about this book and the process of publishing my first novel.


How did you get the idea for the novel?

Several years ago, I had a paper route.  During those cold, dark mornings, my mind would wander, thinking about stories I had read (yes, I read a lot), and about people in my life, including people that I knew from Church, the challenges they faced, and how they dealt with them.  I also thought a lot about the role the Gospel plays in people’s lives–and how important it was to mine.  It wasn’t long before the story started to take shape.  I wrote it over a period of many months and then waited many more months before I was ready to try to find a publisher, which can be a daunting task.

Will there be a sequel?

If I have any say about it, definitely!  I already have two more books planned based on the same characters.  Well, actually, I enjoy when a minor character from one book takes on a major role in a sequel, so you have a chance to explore that person’s life as a broader story develops.  If you want to know more, you’ll just have to wait for it!

Is the book available in paperback or only as an e-book?

At the moment, On the Way Home is only available as an e-book.  We’re working with the publisher, Deseret Book, to add paperback editions as demand warrants it.
