Winner of the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction 2008, The Road Home is the bestselling story of Lev, a middle-aged migrant from Eastern Europe who moves to London in search of work after losing his wife and job. The world Tremain creates is both convincing and poignant. Lev arrives in the UK with little English and even less money. For all its promise, London leaves him lonely and isolated, facing the seamier side of economic migration, until he discovers a passion that could lead him back home. But having a dream and realizing it are two very different things. Humane and deeply moving, The Road Home is vividly filled with the voices of those struggling to belong, whether in their own land or an adopted one.
