I consider myself most fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend so much time with my Scandinavian family throughout the years – especially the older generation. I would listen for hours to their beautifully told tales of life in Norway and then how they slowly transitioned to life in America once they emigrated. By the time I was twelve, I knew that I would someday write a book about their colorful and spirited lives. They were my true writing inspiration.
The events which occurred in The Long Way Home, A Novel by D.L. Norris are primarily factual, derived from the written and oral recollections of family members. Names were changed, but the general account is a fairly accurate compilation of their respective stories, mindsets, and cultural perspectives.
The Long Way Home, A Novel by D.L. Norris, is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the Outskirts Press author webpage for purchase in a variety of formats and price ranges. As always, comments and reviews are welcome.
