Twenty years ago, a father writes a letter to his last surviving ancestor. Written on a whim and soon forgotten, the details of the letter disappear while a woman tends a pharmacy, waiting for someone from long ago. Standing between them are six generations, a forgotten dream, and somewhere called home.
When Steve Hanna boards a plane for Madrid on what is supposed to be a normal study abroad trip, he has no idea where it is about to take him. From the first person he meets on the flight over to the last person he encounters in a small town pharmacy, a series of seemingly unconnected events begins to unfold. As Steve works his way across six countries to the heart of the Czech Republic, he ends up uncovering a larger narrative - a story six generations in the making. Long ago his ancestors paid a price and made a pact to set one person free. One hundred and twenty-five years later, their pact is about to be fulfilled.

Steve Hanna is the sixth generation descendant of a small but determined band of Bohemian immigrants who sacrificed everything they owned to set his great ancestor free. One hundred and twenty-five years later in A Home Called Your Own, Steve journeys to the town of his great ancestor and discovers far more than he bargained for - a story of surrender that will change his life forever.
"Steve Hanna has taken up the standard of his family's quest for permanence. His story is one of responsibility, resistance, humility, and honor." --Kim Barnes, Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of A Country Called Home and In the Kingdom of Men
"When Steve returned from his journey, he told me the incredible story you re about to read. I told him that he should write a book about what he encountered, and two years later, here it is." --Dan Bukvich, composer of Symphony No. 1 (In Memoriam, Dresden, 1945). Dresden is a major location in A Home Called Your Own.
"Inspiring." --Kellen Moore, NCAA record holder in college football wins
