      My Home Is Far Away (), the last of Powell’s novels set in Ohio, is a fictionalized memoir of Powell’s difficult childhood. With The Locusts Have No King (), the story of a scholar’s unexpected brush with the temptations of celebrity and riches, Powell resumed her lifelong dissection of New York’s pretensions and glamour. Repent and turn away from sin’s seductive snare; That all who will obey, with Him shall reign for aye, And that’s my business for my King. 3. My home is brighter far than Sharon’s rosy plain, Eternal life and joy throughout its vast domain; My Sov’reign bids me tell how mortals there may dwell, And that’s my business for my King.

    Far Away From Home Lyrics: I'm loving, living every single day / But sometimes I feel so / I hope to find a little piece of mind / And I just want to know / And who can here those tiny broken. My own eight children all march to the beat of their inner music, and in some cases, it is definitely far away from what I hear. I've had to honor their instincts and their choices, and merely guided them out of harm's way until they could be their own guides.

    NOW WITH A NEW AFTERWORD. F rom the winner of the National Book Award and the National Books Critics’ Circle Award — and one of the most original thinkers of our time — comes a riveting collection of essays about places in dramatic transition..
