Item Description...
Jerry Marshall just wanted to be left alone with his books and his writing, the way his father had left him and his mother alone when he was three. He thought he had his wish, except for three small friends: a cat named Hope, her kitten named Grace and a fox that had connected itself to his family from his birth until something else arrived... Thomas Watson's story of one boy's journey through adulthood on "The Road Home" to Christ touches the mind and heart, and lifts the soul to new heights. From a childhood and youth when he frequently needed to ask himself, 'Why does everyone leave me?' to the fulfilled promise of Christ in his life, we watch Jerry travel the road and discover the power of the Holy Spirit within and the love of Christ that held him from birth. "The Road Home" is a moving story about love, friendship, family and life.

Title: The Road Home

Author: Thomas Watson

The yapping of the fox and the soft purrs of Hope and Grace were often the only company that Jerry Marshall had in his young life. He could not remember a time when the fox was not there, and the cats greeted him each day with gentle glances and knowing meows, then settled on a kitchen chair while he read late into the night. Jerry's mom, who worked late, often stayed later when there was a man to keep her company. His dad had left them when Jerry was just three years of age. Jerry did not mind being alone so much because of his books and his cats, and while he preferred to be alone at school as well, friendships developed. And then they were gone; his friends, his cats and the fox. The pain of his losses and the loneliness was tempered by a burgeoning realization that God was with him in many ways that he did not understand. He need only to open his heart and his mind to the wonderful prospects, but the path before him would not be easy.

The growth of this young man in years and in faith, is a wonderfully moving story that pulls the reader in from the first few pages. Thomas Watson, poet from an early age, has written from the heart and reveals, I believe, his own wonder at the relationship he is developing with God.

This is a very well written novel that would make an excellent read for youth and adults alike. Recommended by reviewer: Elaine Fuhr, Allbooks Review
Worth reading over and over again  Feb 7, 2008
Tom Watson is my friend and a gifted writer. Since finding his own road home, following a heart-rending loss, Tom has
sought to use his warm writing talents to help others find theirs. He weaves a blend of thought-provoking sayings,
poetry, and narrative into his first fiction novel, "The Road Home." Each chapter draws in the reader with new
characters and a captivating storyline. Tom's descriptive detailing of sights, sounds, and emotion makes the characters
come alive, and energizes the reader to find out what happens next. Although life is difficult and sometimes unfair, "The
Road Home" shows that "happy endings" do happen if people make the right choice. This book will make you think,
make you laugh, make you cry, and give you hope for the future. There is a little of Jerry Marshall (the main character)
in all of us. If you haven't already found it, this book may help you find your own road home. Happy reading!

Marina Cassimus
This Christian theme book weaves a lovely, heartwarming story of a boy and obstacles he must overcome beginning in his early life, and how he learns on his own to handle his difficult life as a Christian. Christian principals abound throughout the book. This book is on the Christmas list for my grandchildren! Agape!
Monica Patenaude
In the City of God, St. Augustine writes, "God must be our teacher if we are ever to be wise, and He must be the Source of our inmost consolation if we are ever to be happy." Tom Watson is familiar with that theme in his provocative novel about childhood, love, loss and redemption. He has made redemption interesting and draws a picture of how it is our every day life. Whatever his characters are doing, there is a hope that is not always seen but never absent. As a gifted writer he is able to look at death without despair, even exposing the inner parts of his own life asking us to never give up no matter how much darkness surrounds us. Like David of the Old Testament, walking through the valley of the shadow of death is but one step on the road to eternal life in Jesus Christ.
This novel also evokes memories of his own childhood and reading his story will bring to mind our own experiences with family and how, many of us, lived on the edge of poverty but with love and family support that got us through tough times. One strong theme in the life of our hero is friendship. Darkness is never without humor and Watson can see the
light side of life when others might see only loss.
The Book of Revelation in the New Testament is about how our lives on earth are connected with God's heaven and his presence with us. We might say that on a small intimate scale Watson has grasped the message of Revelation and how God is with us in the midst of our tragedies and darkness and how the living Christ is always in our midst if only as
a stranger holding our hand in friendship. Sometimes He comes to us in another man's story who is willing to share it with the rest of the world. I am glad Tom Watson is my friend and a brother in Christ. He writes from the inside out and from his own losses and darkness asking us to see the light that is all around us.
