“I really liked this book. The characters were well developed and it was nice to not to have pages of sex. I liked the story of finding the old ships that were suppose to have treasure and also the intriguing bad guys. There has to be another book to follow because at the end Meg sees something shining as they grab a Crab out of it’s hole and also I think something is in their cove where they live. I’ll have to get ahold of Mr. Knight and find out.” by F. Breece

“When you read the book it will be obvious why the author chose the title, The Long Way Home. The story is about the hero and heroine taking the “long way home.” Had Mr. Knight desired a subtitle, “The Long Way Home: Adventures on the High Seas” would have captured the complete story. The hero and heroine, Jon and Meg,encountered a myriad of circumstances while on the seas. A 17th century shipwrecked Spanish galleon, the discovery of gold, worth thousands of dollars, dangers of the sea world and terrorists delayed their trip over and over. These same circumstances will keep you up reading late into the night as the suspense builds from page to page and from chapter to chapter.” by Edwina E. Cowgill



Judah Knight was born in Tennessee and grew up in a home that provided love, support, and opportunities. He enjoyed an early life of diversity that included athletics, music, and active church attendance. Judah received his formal education at various places including the University of Georgia and Texas.

Though his educational pursuits eventually earned him a doctorate degree, he has found that learning and personal growth will be a lifetime pursuit. Judah is an avid outdoors man and enjoys scuba diving, boating, and camping. He is married with 6 children and finds his greatest joy with his wife and children.

Though Judah has written for years in other genres, “The Long Way Home” was his first novel. It expresses his passion for scuba diving, his dream of treasure hunting, and the opportunity to overcome life’s challenges brought on by sorrow and unfulfilled dreams. He wrote it, in part, as a reaction to modern-day action and romance novels that are filled with vulgarity and explicit sex.

He feels that people can enjoy a good story and engage their imaginations without language and circumstances that some deem offensive. You can now find two additional books in “The Davenport Series.” Book four is due for release before Christmas of 2016.
