Overview

Part love story, part adventure mystery, part travel guide for the soul, the award-winning novel The Longest Distance is a meditation in traveling from our heads to our hearts, and an awakening to what lies within.

Shaken by tragedy in the wilds of Africa, Jeremy Braddock sets off in search of the answers to our questions about life, truth, and the all-too-trying-yet-wonderful emotion of love. From continent to continent, the protagonist takes us on a rollercoaster ride and riveting journey that reveals to us the masters, the maniacal beauty of this planet, and the greatest mystery of all--the 'one thing' we came here to know. As with life itself, he is not alone in this adventure, with the many supporting characters providing him with mirrored reflections of love in its varied forms, and a windowed view into his soul. Armed with his wit, his will, and an ample dose of healthy humility, our vigilant warrior attempts to summon within himself the courage we must all find to see the face of Truth, and walk the path of a higher Love.

The Longest Distance evokes deeper contemplation à la Eat, Pray, Love with a level of discourse and discovery that will resonate with those who have been touched by the writings of Paulo Coelho and Neale Donald Walsch. Interwoven within the tapestry of the novel and in between each storied tale is an uplifting dialogue with Jeremy's higher self -- the Friend that points the way. What adds to TLD's universal appeal is the inspirational guest appearances of a myriad of Masters - from poets to statesmen to those of the cloth - along with each chapter's unveiling of a key 'quality' that, when pieced together, helps to reveal the greater picture at hand -- the Love within the love that beckons us home.

The Longest Distance is a sleuth of spirit and treasure hunt of the heart that awakens our soul and provides yet another clue for the curious, a jewel for the romanticist in us all.

Absolute must read! Like Eat, Pray, Love -- only with a man (finally!). The book takes you across the world, raises thoughtful questions, and inspires you to go higher, whatever your beliefs. I loved the masters that showed up throughout. And the main character was a serial conversationalist (which I could identify with). The writing is poetic, witty, mystical at times, and revealing. Messaging too. It spoke to me and made me think about ‘the one thing I came here to know.’ Loved it! Finally, a book from a man that gives us girls hope. Buy it! Read it! Then try not to be moved to, well, move. Jeremy Braddock, you rock!!!

A Must-Read The author had me captivated from the very beginning. The first scene had me right in the story connecting with the main character. This book took me on an adventure to so many places building my emotions and the need to read more with each new stop along the way. Jeremy, the main character, really is just like any of us. He knows that what is taking place in his life is not working, but yet does not have the discipline to change it. Through the struggles, the peaks and the in betweens, Jeremy continues to show that when you have had enough, change will happen. This is definitely a must-read for anyone who has had any questions about themselves, about love, about a higher self. This book will bring your heart to surface with the need to share with others. Even if you do not have these questions, I still highly recommend this book. There is a message for any reader within this journey.  It has a beautiful flow of the language throughout the book that brings inspiration and loving to anyone who reads it. I found it a truly inspirational and motivating novel. The author has a creative way of weaving in quotes and phrases from historical figures throughout the book. The way this is written is truly beautiful.  Highly recommended.

This was a phenomenal read! It grabbed my attention from the very beginning, and I barely put it down. It is well written, so well written in fact that I found myself underlining quotes from the book on nearly every page. This is definitely a book about personal growth. The main character, Jeremy, begins as a man just like any other man. He is lost, and even confused at times, but the book takes us on a journey of self discovery and inner growth. There is an immense amount of world travel throughout the book, and it feels as if I am visiting those places myself. The author is a globe trotter, and the book shows that. He definitely didn't research the places he references, he has actually experienced them, which I find to be rare. I would highly recommend this book if you are still detoxing from novels such as "Eat, Pray, Love" or the "Alchemist." It has spiritual undertones, but the character feels very tangible and real. He is easy to relate to, and I believe a lot of people would understand the struggle of growth and self discovery found in this novel.

The Longest Distance is an eclectic mix of genres – it’s a spiritual guide, a literary work, a mystery, an adventure, a love story, and a self-help book all in one. Main character Jeremy Braddock is the kind of person I could instantly connect with. We meet him at crossroads in his life. After coming face to face with tragedy, he goes off to search the answers to a series of questions about life, truth, love, and more. This is the start of an adventure spanning all around the globe, the journey of a lifetime. The story was intriguing, but the real message the book wanted to portray was the most interesting part about the book for me. The writing is descriptive, lyrical, and the story flows well, mostly thanks to the writing. While the main character goes on a real journey, it’s his spiritual journey that offers the most, and that we learn from the most. I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy this book, since it falls outside my usual reading niche, but I did. The story never slows down, the writing is solid, and overall, it’s just a good book. Recommended to anyone who has questions about life – and isn’t that just about everyone? I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

First off, this is not a typical read for me. I generally gravitate towards suspense/action/mysteries, but I was recommended this as a good read for someone who is trying to figure out life and decided to give it a try. After reading this book, I have to admit that I found it meaningful, profound, and very relevant. Without giving too much away, if you are someone who is searching for yourself,  you may just find some clarity and direction within these pages.

I Loved This Book! The Longest Distance was a journey worth taking. I was so excited with the story I skipped to the end, then went back to read the chapters in between. I am glad I did, as there was so much meaning in each chapter, each page. The author left me with so much to think about, with love, with life. His style of writing is true poetry, and witty too. The story weaves so many special qualities shared by many people who make up our lives. They are like mirrors, as Scott shares with us – mirrors that reflect to us who we are in truth. I love to travel, and this book takes you to so many places through the eyes and heart of Jeremy, the main character. Most importantly, it takes us to the place where “all are welcome Home." Excellent book!
