A Long Journey – New Direction is the second book of a Long Journey series. 




Sophie Walker left England with a broken heart eight years ago but has come back for a once in a lifetime work opportunity. During a chance encounter, Sophie runs into her ex-boyfriend Geoff Carmichael and his sister Emma, the two people who betrayed her during her final year of Dowsford College. Both Sophie and Geoff struggle to free themselves from the past and wonder if there is any possible future together.

I really liked the first book and wanted to see where the story would take Sophie and Geoff. I have to admit that the second book is even better than the first one! It’s exciting and griping, and I love the characters. I look forward to read the 3rd book.....

Keep up the good work Kate.....
