Long Mile Home is the story of the Boston Marathon bombing, from tragedy to recovery. Boston Globe journalists Scott Helman and Jenna Russell tell the full story through the eyes of five principal characters, each time tracing the paths that brought them to a tragic intersection with two murderous brothers on that infamous day in April. Including unexpected revelations and unforgettable moments of heroism, Long Mile Home is both an absorbing, action-packed narrative and a lasting tribute to the bravery and resiliency of the Boston community.
Scott Helman is a staff writer at the Boston Globe Magazine and coauthor of The Real Romney. Jenna Russell was one of the reporters at the forefront of the Globe's coverage of the bombing and is a coauthor of the NewYork Times bestseller Last Lion.
