I went out to the garage, and there I found him with the motor still running, fumes galore, and his dead body at the wheel. I immediately opened the garage door and looked into his face. My response was, He's at peace. He's whole. There is no more war going on in his mind. He looked so peaceful. It just stood to remind me of how much restraint he must have used as he was here on this earth. Christina Brady and her family understand the stressful and oftentimes heartbreaking effects of having a family member who suffers from bipolar disorder. Christina was married for almost thirty years before the unexpected death of her husband, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in the last seven years of their marriage. Without a cure, their lives were filled with the struggle to keep their family afloat. You can feel the heartbeat of God's love in reading The Road from Home. Christina invites you to walk along with her on her heart-wrenching road through life as she battles her husband's daily mood swings and instability that affected their finances, friends, and family relationships. She ends her pilgrimage with encouragement to those who walk these difficult and lonely roads of their own.

I entered the world in 1945, the middle of the twentieth century, but my family's way of life had not changed substantially for more than a hundred years. The area around our house is still known as Castlebarnagh, which is a small townland near Daingean in northeast County Offaly, in the midlands of Ireland. The Road from Castlebarnagh is Paddy O'Brien's lyrical account of growing up as a budding musician in County Offaly in the 1950s and 1960s. Paddy grew up at a time when the social life of the Irish countryside often took place around the fireplace, where stories were told and music was played. In his book he writes of the many colourful characters who shaped his perception of Irish life and culture. Showing Paddy's flair for storytelling, The Road from Castlebarnagh is the story of how a young musician absorbed his surroundings while developing his own distinctive musical style.

Growing up in Barbados in humble surroundings as a devout Christian, Una was the oldest of ten children. Living in a small rural village with a simple school, church and local shop, life was poor but easy. Then, one day, a blue airmail letter arrived, addressed to Una’s mother. The letter brought a sense of adventure and changed Una’s life drastically – for the better. John Chandler, a Christian who had once worked with her mother, was writing to invite Una to come to England, get married and start a new life. On her 17th birthday, Una left the West Indies to make her first journey to England, with 2 pounds for a new life in her pocket. Saying goodbye to her parents and other siblings, she arrived at Gatwick airport on 1st November 1961. There, she was greeted by a bright and beaming young man with a friendly smile – John. He and Una went on to have 20 years of happy marriage and 6 children. Unfortunately, John developed lung cancer and passed away on 25th December 1982, leaving Una a widow at the age of 38. As life moved on and grief slowly faded, Una went back to adult education college and studied to become a Methodist Local Preacher – for eighteen years, she was the only female West Indian Lay Preacher on the Methodist Church Circuit for Reading and Silchester. She is the first female West Indian-born Chaplain at Reading Borough Council, where she also works as a volunteer. This is her story, of courage, faith, determination, hard work and a sense of humour. Life is for living and A Long Way From Home is about making that journey.
