Description

A fast-paced literary eco-thriller about the power of resistance, the fine line between activism and terrorism, and what happens when things go too far.

It is 1993 on Vancouver Island. A group of idealistic young activists, determined to do whatever it takes to protect the environment, turn to sabotage. But in a single moment everything they've worked for goes terribly wrong: a night watchman at a logging company warehouse is killed in an explosion that they set.

Two Roads Home follows these activists as their lives - and their cause - spiral out of control. Pete, who set the bomb, heads off the grid, where he discovers a vibrant community of squatters who have been affected by the explosion in unexpected ways. Meanwhile, Pete's mother is determined to track him down and clear his name.

In Two Roads Home, Daniel Griffin deftly reimagines history: what if, instead of the legendarily peaceful Clayoquot Sound protests of the 1990s, things had gone too far? How far is too far, when it comes to protesting what one sees as injustice? And what happens when that line is crossed?

Editorial Review

"Daniel Griffin's Two Roads Home is a blistering examination of modern-day radicalism, a society's collective guilt, and the possibility of redemption. As propulsive as a thriller, with characters so real they draw blood, this is a powerful novel that never lets up." - Steven Price, author of By Gaslight

"In this darkly beautiful tale, four idealists try to do 'something good, something important, something no one else seemed willing to stand up and do.' But it goes wrong and suddenly Pete Osborne is on the run, his mother Tab becomes a sleuth and we're off into a page-turner of a story. Daniel Griffin's compassionate eye follows his characters through the lush coastal forests, wilderness and waters of British Columbia, while he maps their emotional terrain keenly as a mind-reader. Two Roads Home is an elegantly crafted, nuanced work that reveals how we stretch our bonds, and sometimes betray them, to belong, matter or survive." - Shauna Singh Baldwin, author of The Selector of Souls
