Along their way, they will also meet Jess, a young twenty something woman who also wants to go home. The three of them will help each other survive the tumultuous journey to go back to their family and loved ones. Sarge is the last character they’ll meet, a hardcore retired first sergeant of the army; he will provide an oasis of peace and safety in Morgan and his friends’ desperate search for solitude and security.

AA aims to present a story that offers myriad of thoughts that will convey a striking inventory of a man, and his relationship with his family, with himself and just how far he is willing to go. Going Home is bound to inspire readers with every turn of the page. It’s a peek into what life could be like without all the trappings of technology people are used to.
