The Home I left

A journey home reveals more than John could ever have imagined secrets, loss, and the surprising power of redemption.

After years of service, John Furst settled into a low-key bureaucratic post within the US military, coordinating funeral arrangements for soldiers. With a loving woman in his corner, and a punchy work crew he enjoys, he could ride this thing out to retirement. Then a call comes in. His father’s cracking voice informs John that his disliked elder brother has suddenly died.

John must journey home to face the questions around his drug-addicted brother’s death, the conflicted family members who remain, and his own ghosts haunting through four generations of small-town minds. Drawing on patience, drinking, laughter, tears, and screams, John and his estranged family face tragic loss, and he learns that while before his life once seemed secure, it now appears held in place by stagnation.

While crossing a bridge to work one morning after the funeral, John decides to take a leap unforeseen.

Join John on his transformative journey as he navigates the complexities of family, love, and self-discovery. Discover the power of second chances and the resilience of the human spirit in a story that will tug at your heartstrings and leave you pondering the choices that define us all.
