“All of the books in Sally John’s ‘The Other Way Home’ series are filled with the wonderful story of God’s love for us and also let us know no matter how bad things may seem, life is full of second chances and many surprises as we walk along the paths of our life’s journey. When we have faith in God’s wisdom and trust him to direct our paths, there is no limit to what can be achieved in our lives.” — Christian Library Journal

“Through tears and laughter, Sally John paints a lush tale of two women’s quests to find happiness, instead finding true love when they least expected it. From the first page to the final word, I could not put Ms. John’s book down.” — Tracy Farnsworth, reviewer for

Book Jacket:

I didn't plan on falling in love...

Kate Kilpatrick has only one goal--a byline on the front page of a big-city newspaper. She considers her internship with the small-town Valley Oaks Times a brief stop on the way to becoming a world-class reporter. However, her encounter with part-time pilot, part-time teacher Tanner Carlucci challenges her determination to put her career above everything else. Falling in love with Tanner is definitely not part of the plan.

Adele Chandler, Kate's landlady, gave up on true love long ago. A single mom, her priorities are raising her teenage daughter and directing the community's nursing home--that is, until two men enter her life and change it completely. As she sorts through the consequences new decisions bring, Adele looks into her heart and wonders if love can bloom there again.

The Winding Road Home, a novel about finding ourselves in a place we didn't expect to be, demonstrates that God is a sure Guide even in the midst of unplanned detours and other surprises along life's way.
