About the Book
When Eli Ross left Prince Edward Island to join the NHL, he left a broken family behind. More than a decade later, he’s broke and headed home to an uncertain welcome. He wants to make things right with the family he wronged, but his mom’s business partner isn’t making it easy. To top it off, the coaching job he’s accepted turns out to be far more difficult than he anticipated.
For years, Violet Donaghy has put everything she had into making Eli’s mom’s ceramics shop a success, and she’s not eager to forgive the man who hurt the family that’s taken her in as one of their own. But when the kiln at the shop starts a fire that nearly destroys the studio, she’ll need all the help she can get to save the business and their summer income.
Can these two strong-willed people come together to mend the broken pieces of the Ross family? Or will the ghosts of the past continue to haunt them?
Return to Prince Edward Island for a romantic story of family, forgiveness, and the power of love.

In My Opinion
Liz Johnson returns readers to the Prince Edward Island shores in The Last Way Home. This prodigal son story starts with a lot of questions, regret, and broken pieces.
Throughout the book, Johnson weaves a tale of facing our past mistakes and learning to forgive—both ourselves and those that have hurt us. Violet and Eli both have different regrets, but they are both pushing away or blocking out family who loves them. It’s not until they share those regrets with each other that the healing starts.
I loved Eli coaching the hockey team. The players give him purpose and that’s when Violet starts to see a side of him other than what she’s heard from his brothers. And while I guessed fairly early on what happened with both Eli and Violet in the past, I still enjoyed their grace-filled journeys to forgiveness and healing.
And I’m very curious to learn more about the quietest brother of them all. I really hope Levi’s book is next.

I just finished this book, and it had a preview for the next book. Definitely Levi’s story!
