"The Road Home" by Tommy Tenny & Mark Andrew Olsen

"The Road Home"
By Tommy Tenny and Mark Andrew Olsen

A moden day story of Ruth

What happens when fate links the destiny of a woman with Mennonite heritage to that of a Las Vegas cocktail waitress? Will these two from different backgrounds and generations, connected only by life's circumstances and losses, find healing for their wounds on The Road Home.
For Naomi Kauffman Yoder, memories of a Pennsylvania Dutch childhood, abandoned roots, lost connections, and shattered dreams have left her with nothing but loneliness and regret. Now wracked with grief, she comes to a momentous decision…
For Ruth Escalante Yoder, daughter-in-law and friend to Naomi, she concludes that leaving Las Vegas is the only option left to her…
So begins their odyssey --- a cross-country quest in Naomi’s creaky old Impala as she returns to her family farm in Lancaster County, to the values of a life once spurned.
Although never having seen the East before, Ruth too is looking for a place to call home. Will she find it among the slow, quiet rhythms of Pennsylvania farm country?
Far more than a simple road trip, their drive home becomes a journey of the soul.
