Book: The Road Back Home by Scott Fieldscategories: Book, Teenagers, Small Town Life, Innocence, Feel Good, 1955, Fifties
Scott Fieldsabout this book: The year was 1955. Eisenhower was president and Davy Crockett was every boy's hero. It was an age of innocence and a time when boys wore tight jeans and tee shirts, and the girls wore poodle skirts. For Brody Watson, it was the summer he lost his father, fell in love with a girl, and discovered the sweetness of small town life.
For Brody and Earl, the summer of '55 began as an adventure. It was a quest for fun and a need for mischief, and it ended with two teenagers learning a great deal about life. THE ROAD BACK HOME is a powerful yet poignant story laced with humor and filled with warm sentiment of enduring love.
THE ROAD BACK HOME is a 60,000-word novel, and it looks into the very heart of small town life, a setting I came to know intimately while I lived in La Rue, Ohio. Most of this novel is based on my life as a teenager, and, in fact, there is one character in the novel who many would say is me.
