Book Review - Family Tree #2: The Long Way Home
About the Book
Four girls. Four generations. One family.
The second entry in the beautiful new series from Ann M. Martin.
Dana is Abby's daughter -- but she's always been much closer to her father, Zander. He's a celebrated New York author who encourages Dana's artistic talents . . . even if he sometimes drinks too much. Dana is on his side in any argument, regardless of whether he's wrong. And then her father dies.
After years of moving, often with her mother and three siblings, Dana is angry at Abby, and wants nothing more than to leave her family and get back to New York City. She moves in with her young, bohemian aunt Adele, determined to study art, attend school, achieve independence, and avoid all the mistakes her mother made. But can she leave her family and Maine behind?

My Take on the Book
This is a great addition to the series! You get to learn and see so much more of the characters that you came to love in the first book, among others as well. What I loved most though about this book was how well the author was able to create and describe the environment where the book takes place, as well as the intricate details to the relationships between the characters. The book was definitely one that was a fast and engaging read that had me hooked from beginning to end!
