Someday Home

“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.”

― Vicki Harrison

When I read this quote today, it fit so well with the book I am reviewing tonight, I had to share it.

Lauraine Snelling has been a quality writer for a number of years and I tell you right now, she hasn't lost her touch. Someday Home is one of those books that just makes the reader feel good all the way through.

Lynn is a widow with a house on the lake bigger than she needs, but she doesn't want to give it up, so she decides to share her home with two other women. Judith is a middle-aged woman whose father has just passed away and left her house to the county for an historical site. Angela is a woman whose husband tells her on their 25th anniversary he wants a divorce.

These three women have to work through anger, grief, and disillusionment and find their place in God's hands. To read the narrative as the women grow into the women God has meant for them to be is a tremendous pleasure. Lauraine will pull the readers' heart strings, bring tears to their eyes, and fill them with love.

Judith finds herself learning to cook, Angela rediscovers her love of cooking, Lynn finds herself learning to share and not to "over-mother" the others in her home. The three become sisters in every sense of the word--except for genetics.

Someday Home is not a romance, but it does fit into the women's fiction category. A definite five stars, two thumbs up, and a canoe ride on a quiet lake.

My thanks to FaithWords for allowing me to read and review this book. My only requirement was to be honest in my feelings about the book.
