Publisher's Summary

You can’t outrun your past. If you try, it will chase after you in a silver DeLorean.

The last thing Anika Singh wants is to go home to Ohio, but when her mother is diagnosed with cancer, what choice does she really have? She’ll go home if she has to, but she won’t stay long. Because all Marcine, Ohio, has for Anika is bad memories - memories of being an outcast, even within her own family, and memories of a perfect love that was soured by betrayal.

Jenny’s betrayal. Anika’s high school sweetheart turned ex-wife. Anika hopes she won’t run into Jenny...or maybe she hopes she will run into her. It’s hard to say.

Then there’s Amy, a dark-haired beauty Anika meets on the flight to Cleveland, who happens to be in Marcine for a friend’s wedding. Nothing serious can happen with Amy; she’s only going to be in town for a week. Which means that falling for her would be stupid, especially given the fact that Jenny might be available again.

But Anika is famous for doing stupid things.

A story flavored with curry and cornbread, family drama, and a whole lot of f-bombs, Anika Takes the Long Way Home up Soul Mountain will have you laughing, crying, and grimacing as Anika gets chased around by a silver DeLorean and attempts to answer the age-old question: Can you ever really go home again?

Part of the Rosemont Duology: This is the second book in the Rosemont Duology, following up from To Have Loved & Lost. However, Anika Takes the Long Way Home up Soul Mountain can also be enjoyed as a standalone novel. This lesbian romance is rated R for:

  • A lot of really bad language
  • Sexual content
  • Adult situations

Fall in love!!

I have read both Rosemont duologies! I have never felt more involved in a book as these. The characters were relatable as an athlete myself. Going through the highs, lows, heartbreaks, and falling in love all over again throughout the entire book! Absolutely well written and I wish there were others to follow.

Great book! Something to be proud of! Waiting patiently for book “3”.

This story line was an easy listen due to the fact it was relatable as well as believable. It held my attention and through its entirety it continued to draw me in. Was sorry to see it come to its end. Actually I was almost as intrigued while listening to authors rant at the end of books 1 and 2. Would love to meet her someday. Keep up the good work. It’s refreshing to read something that is true to my life. Thanks

Awesome!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend Anika Takes the Long Way Home up Soul Mountain: A Lesbian Romance: Rosemont Duology, Book 2 to anyone lesbian or not! Eliza Andrews hit a home run.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anika, her character was strong but at the same time caring.

Have you listened to any of Angela Rysk’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Angela Rysk is one of my favorite readers. She reads the Imp series. She adds flavor to the books she reads.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Can't say without giving to much away. I will say there were several moving moments.

Any additional comments?

To many books are the same as the one before. This one was not cookie cutter.

LOVED IT!!!

I read the first book of this duology and I loved it, this one is even better. I loved the story line the characters and I hope that Eliza Andrews will write more adult books... I loved the 1st book because it was about college in a way, and I love this currant book because it deals with life closer to 40... I am waiting for a book closer to my age... :) No doubt Angela Rysk was an important component in the appealing of the book. Great book don’t think twice to read/listen to it...

Just as awesome as the first book!

Wow, I really love this author! So refreshing and down to earth in her writing. There's a quirky Back to the Future spin, too, which is a very endearing way to reflect on a character's past and provide some great reflection and assessment. Also, quite frankly, this is more of the soft butch character that I relate to and have been craving in a novel. Now on a mission to find more books by this author.

Some heavy stuff

Welp I've come to realize that Eliza Andrews likes to write some heavy ass sh*t. There's too many things to say about this book so I'm not going to try and categorize and then write an essay about what I feel about this book. I will just simplify everything very minimally and move on because this Book is a love and hate by me. The things I Loved. 1. Back to the future You know, I still think that at some level, Anika is schizophrenic because she actually has conversations with her mind people. Anyway, disregarding that, I loved the whole movie references and it was very funny to see her interact with her mind. I thought it was fun and it worked as a flashback metaphor. 2. The introspection of the character Anika is incredible deep as a character and she lived a very widespread life. A big theme in this book is roots and Anika spends a majority of the book trying to find hers, all the while dealing with love and lost and growing into a stronger person. There's a lot more to Anika but that would be a whole other review. 3. The use of strong language It was fun, true and amazing, good job about creating a relatable character that actually expresses herself. What I hated about this book 1. The whole cheating thing Ok, I understand that Anika screwed up first and Jenny went and did the same to get back at her but my problem with this is so many things. First off, it's so very hard to write a believable story that uses cheating as a plot device to further better the story. I think Eliza Andrews did very good. I just didn't like when Jenny says that they can raise that baby together, she knew exactly what she was doing, she did it twice and without any protection. It was horrible, it made me mad and I felt that Jenny was just a irredeemable character after that. 2. The turmoil between Anika and her siblings I believe that Anika's siblings had no right to say anything to her at the end when she fights with her big sister. 3. The lack of Amy's presence in the story I didn't truly hate this one, I just wished that amy had more screen time but I understand this was more of a journey for Anika as a person rather than a romance between the two. Overall: I liked this, I think Eliza Andrews tried to do the impossible and I think she did the best she could. I do recommend this book BUT it is a very very heavy book with a multitude of themes and depths. It is good if you can finish it.
