Day Nine of 12 Days of Holiday Giving: The Longest Way Home by Andrew McCarthy

thelongestwayhome
For many, Andrew McCarthy will always be remembered as the young heartthrob from Pretty in Pink. Who knew that he was also an avid traveller?

On the must-read list this winter is his book The Longest Way Home: One Man’s Quest for the Courage to Settle Down. To overcome his tendencies to resist commitment, and come to terms with his future, McCarthy set out on soul-searching journeys to places such as Mt. Kilimanjaro, Costa Rica and the Amazon.

The reviews note that the book is not only well-written, but goes beyond just the travel story to speak to his personal journey and love for the woman who is now his wife.

On my list of reads this winter!

Available via Amazon.ca, $18.80
