Long Way Gone

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 OConnor 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 twenty years later, he wonders if its too late to tell her the truth about his pastand 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....

Long Way Gone Reviews

  • Rebecca

    "Music is a gift. We make it to give away."

    It took Cooper "Peg" O'Connor decades to learn what his father had been faithfully demonstrating for years; "(when you play a song)you're giving them something that no amount of money can buy . . . . . . hope." His journey took him from the mountains of Colorado and a life filled with tent revivals to the street corners of Nashville, Tennessee, where lots of people could play an instrument, but seldom offered the gift of music. Until Cooper meets Daley

  • Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin

    Wow, I had no idea I would like this book so much. It touched me in so many ways, it's taken me a bit to figure what I'm even going to say. I laughed and I cried and I loved.



    When Cooper finally made his way home to Colorado he was a changed man in many ways. His music career was over, or so it seemed. He had plenty of money and he fixed up the old Ptarmigan Theatre his dad bought years ago but never did anything with it. Cooper made it into a nice little theatre with recording equipment and he

    I won this book through GoodReads First Read program.

    I had never read any book written by Charles Martin and, quite frankly, had never heard of him. I was blessed with having won his book and then having read it. Martin has a way of bringing up items that you think are loose ends to a story and but then he ties them off as he works he way through the tale. There were countless times in which I read something and wondered where that came from hoping he would explain. Well later in the story the e

    A moving and emotional tale, based loosely on the parable of the prodigal son.

    You know there's good storie and then there's great stories. This is a great story and one that I know will stay with me for a very long time to come.

    I highly reccomend this story, especially to anyone who is atall musical, as there are many many musical references in this book, a lot of which went right over my head. At times I found these a little distracting, but not enough to ruin a beautiful tale, and I'm sure so

    Higher than 5 stars for me

    This book is so good that I don't know how to put it into words. My feeble review will not adequately describe how good this book is.

    This is one of the top five books I have ever read!!!

    The narrative descriptions are astounding, you can hear what he hears and see what he sees.

    Sometime when I am reading that gets too monotonous, I will skim through it. I read every word of this book.

    I highly recommend this book !

  • Krista

    This was my first Charles Martin book. Thanks to the Fiction Guild for sending it to me.

    The story took a little while to get going, which is the main reason this was 4 instead of 5 stars for me. But once I got to know the characters a bit I liked it better. I am someone who loves music and learned a few instruments when I was younger. Music is definitely a major part of this book, almost it's own character. Even for those who may not have a background in music they have probably experienced a t

    Charles Martin is fast becoming one of my favorites! Gripping book. Solid story. Emotional ride. I love music so it made me doubly interested. Some of the religious views made me pause and say, "what????" But don't let the fact you may question or differ with some of the religious interpretations in the story keep you from this book. Jesus' story of the Prodigal Son has always touched my heart because we are all prodigals in one way or the other and prone to "leave the God we love". This story b ...more

  • Missy

    This is a solid 4.5 stars. I will just put this out there, this was my lunch read and I sometimes added extra salt to my food because of this book. My grandpa and his brothers were big singers, they sang at church in the choir, at church dinners for entertainment while you waited, and always at funerals. They sang what I call the great church hymns, the old hymns, the ones you don’t always hear anymore. One of my favorites they sang was “How Great Thou Art”. They sounded great all their bass and ...more
