Scott Helman and Jenna Russell are the authors of Long Mile Home: Boston Under Attack, the City’s Courageous Recovery, and the Epic Hunt for Justice. Long Mile Home tells the gripping story of the tragic, surreal, and ultimately inspiring week of April 15, 2013, and highlights the bravery, resourcefulness, and resiliency of the Boston community before, during, and after the tragic Marathon Bombings. The authors, both journalists at the Boston Globe, are backed by that paper’s deep and widely praised coverage of the event. Through the eyes of seven principal characters, Helman and Russell trace the distinct paths that brought them together. With an unprecedented level of detail and insight, the book offers revelations, insights, and powerful stories of heroism and humanity.
