On a Dark and Winding Mountain Road – An Excerpt from “When Far Away Is Home”


Here is an excerpt from my new book:

“It took between three and four hours to make the bus trip from San Pedro Sula to Tegucigalpa. We boarded in the late afternoon, and before long, we were winding through the steep mountains on a narrow two-lane road. It turned dark, very dark, with no surrounding lights from homes or businesses in the isolated mountain region.

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any darker, the headlights of the bus went out. The bus was now traveling on this road in complete darkness. People screamed and tried to come to grips with what was happening, while the driver calmly continued to drive the winding road. To say that fear reared its head would be a gross understatement. With every curve reminding us of the steep drop-offs just outside the windows, we wondered why the driver didn’t stop. . . “
