Share Article

New book "The Way Back" from Page Publishing Author Jeff Turner is a journey through the inner mechanics of a family that has built walls between it's members rather than bonds. This story conveys simple messages about the complexities of life: how we need to accept our loved ones just as they are, their gifts and beauty along with their flaws and inner pain.

Jeff Turner, a lifelong academic and Professor of Human Development and Family Relations, has completed his first book "The Way Back": a thoughtful and touching exploration of family dynamics, love, and strife.

Turner says: "For many years I have written (and published) a number of successful college-level textbooks, but I’ve always felt the pull of someday creating a work of fiction. When a window of writing opportunity landed in my lap, The Way Back beckoned and became a reality.."

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jeff Turner’s poignant tale is a journey of self-discovery and realizations about what truly matters most in life.

Jack Elliot is stepping into midlife on top of his game. The flip, wise-cracking professor is up for tenure at a prestigious college and his books sell like hotcakes from coast to coast. He’s living the good life in a posh Connecticut shoreline town with all the trappings: marble fireplaces, sandy beaches, private boarding schools. The man is hitting on all cylinders and his future never seemed brighter.

That is, until the bottom falls out.

In a blink, seemingly every aspect of Jack’s world gets turned upside down. He faces trumped up academic harassment charges, discovers his wife has been unfaithful and his teenage son bullied by high school thugs. Enter the seductive and mysterious Rachel Pond into Jack’s life as well as troubling memories from a family swimming pool party that went horribly wrong, and suddenly he has more on his plate than he can handle.

Readers who wish to experience this well crafted title can purchase "The Way Back" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
