The Long Way Home

Search. The tenth novel in Louise Penny’s Chief Inspector Gamache series finds Armand retired and living contentedly in the village of Three Pines, Quebec. The novel titled, The Long Way Home, explores on many levels with multiple characters the search for the balm that will make the wounded whole and will cure the sin-sick soul, as in the spiritual, There Is a Balm in Gilead, and in a book Gamache is reading. Neighbor Clara Morrow tells Gamache that her husband is missing, and that leads to an expanded cast of characters searching for the lost man. I was drawn into the series by Penny’s fine writing, and this installment brought my satisfaction to an even higher level. Any reader who enjoys fine prose with well-developed and complex characters will find lots of reading pleasure from this novel.
