A radical retelling of the prodigal son story, 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.
"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 eighteen, 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
home to the remote Colorado mountains, searching for answers about his
father and his faith.
When Daley shows up on his street corner
twenty 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 himself.
