On The Way Home is the story of Harold Robertson, retired high school history teacher, and former US Congressman, who happened to be in the wrong place at the right time. Harold has lost his wife to an aneurysm, and his older brother to the war in Vietnam. Retired from Congress, Harold is at a loss to see where his life is going; that is until he attends an Immigration and Naturalization ceremony at Mount Rushmore on Memorial Day, 2015. His world is turned upside down in an instant, leaving him with a broken body and mind to mend.
What Harold doesn't know, is that America is hungry for the simple strength which he learned in the classroom and on the House floor. That, and he is about to find love for the second time in his life in the aftermath of the attack.
