On the Way Home is a unique story.
Stephen Henderson, neurosurgeon, head of his department at a local medical school, is returning home after a late night call to the hospital. He is stopped by a police officer, gets out of his car at the officer's request, and wakes up to find himself in a space ship on its way to a universe in parallel with ours.
He would have said that such a thing was ridiculous and couldn't possibly happen - and we might have agreed with him. But he is forced to change his opinion. Why? What happened?
The 'police officer' has abducted him to perform an operation on a powerful political leader. The surgery is successful, but unexpectedly this success leads Henderson into a situation where his life and return to Earth are threatened. The assistant surgeon at the operation is a beautiful woman who is drawn to Henderson, and into his struggle to escape.
Henderson gets back to Earth convinced that he was away out in space. We be as sure as he is, after we read On the Way Home.
