I'm doing a summary on the Long Road Home but since it has been a long time since i read the book i have forgotten the characters. I would've bought the book but none of the book stores have it. So plz i'm on a deadline could you tell me the name of Gabrielle's parents, the priest, the doctor, and the old man who was killed by Steve, and could you verify if i stated Steve name correctly. I would really appreciate your help.

The story about Lila, inspired by "The
Long Road Home" was not full. All be-
gan in early 1983 when Lila got a slap
from her mother and was forced to go to school with suffered cheek (her mother reckoned that her fellows will
leave and even abuse her,but the effect was opposite).On a next day Lila was walking with nanny and her
husband, and a girl from the First
Compartment (the school was divided to
compartments for rich and for poorer)
began to tease her. Rick, nanny's hus-
band, thrashed this rich girl,for which he was arrested. The nanny fell
under threat of deprivation of mater-
nal rights,but she was taken by Mrs.
Millicent, whose daughter was Lila's
friend, and began to take care on her
twins. Annie, Amanita's (Lila's mother's) maid, who delivered to Mil-
licent all information, was beaten
and forced to go shopping with bruised face (she and her babies were
thrown out from the mall)... Two months after, Rick was hanged, Lila
got fever, and her teacher Theresa
took care on her and even declared a
strike, protesting against Amanita's
cruelties and arbitrariness of the rich compartment.
TO BE CONTINUED...

I have a novel in which one subject is
similar to this one in "The Long Road
Home". Lila, daughter of a film star, is also abused by her mother, and her
defenders also suffer: her nanny's
husband is put to death, her school
teacher is sold to brothel because she
lowered mark for conduct to Lila's
classmate who threatened her: when Lila tried to defend her governess, she was shot and deprived of medical
treatment (she got it in the USSR).
Afterwards this film star orders to
demolish houses of nanny and maid, and
burn the home-personnel agency with its clerks... One years after, a So-viet doctor who saved Lila was tortured to death, and Lila was shot
and thrown to a lime pit.

The book was amazing!! I'm not one to sit down and read books, i'm a 15 year old sophmore and ususally use spark notes to do book reports, but this is not a book you want to do that with! It can be very sad and touching but it is a great book with great meaning, it really shows you how things can change in just an instant! It is a book you just don't want to put down, and a book that will not put you to sleep. I love the book and recomend it to everyone!
