In Homeward, we are taken into the past of a little girl who grew up poor and afraid of everything. In the aftermath of heartbreak, she begins to untangle the threads of trauma, loss, and addiction that are inextricably woven into her understanding of what a home is or should be, and examines her part in all of it. The idea of home had always been elusive to her, so when she thought she found it as a woman, she held on tight…with both hands. Only in letting go can she discover what home truly is.
To move forward, she knows she needs to look back. From the gorgeous trails of New England, to the mountains of North Carolina, to an island in Maine that claimed her heart, Laura’s journey speaks to the transience so many of us have felt in our own stories. We watch as she wrestles with questions that are our questions: Am I loved? Where do I belong?
In this thoughtful, funny, and unflinchingly honest exploration of her relationship with the people and places she’s loved, she builds something beautiful out of what’s broken. Brave and terrified, Laura Parrott Perry begins the search for the place she’s never known. Home.
