AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It's the end of the 60s. American Jesse travels light. He has no family, just a guitar and a desire to do what he's always done - keep moving. Flannery is attached to plenty of strings in her Northern Ireland home, but she's worn out by sectarian violence and looking for a place to help her forget. Australia is waiting to give them both a fresh start. And so is the charismatic and enigmatic Leon - who dreams of creating the perfect community on the New South Wales coast. All the Way Home explores the importance of family bonds, home and belonging, and the seductiveness of a well-intentioned but ultimately flawed dream.'

Works about this Work

A Novel in Verse: 'All the Way Home' Sarah L'Estrange (interviewer), 2013 single work interview
— Appears in: ABC News [Online] , January 2013;
'Have you heard of the verse novel? It's a novel written in verse or poetry rather than prose. One person who made her name with the verse novel was the late Australian poet Dorothy Porter. Her genre bending books The Monkey's Mask and El Dorado are two good examples. Now poet Kristin Henry has added her own voice to this tradition with her novel in poems All the Way Home. It's about American Jesse Bryant's search for a home, first in the United States then in a commune on the south coast of New South Wales. It begins in the 1950s, takes us through the hippie days of the 70s and into the present.'
