Review - Homeward

Homeward by Melody Carlson

Release Date: July 1, 1997
Publisher: Multnomah Books
Genre: Christian Fiction
Pages: 450 pages
Format: E-book
Buy It: Amazon

Returning home after twenty years absence, Meg Lancaster struggles to restore relationships with her family, but finds herself uncovering secrets hidden for decades. The more she learns, the more she is forced to reevaluate her long-held assumptions.

This book was a little slow starting, but quickly became intriguing. Meg is a unique character who has to decide between her past with her family, and her present with her career. Painful memories resurface for her while she goes down memory lane, but just as many pleasant ones return as well.

Meg meets many new friends, including a lawyer named Matthew who she knew from her camp days as a child. She also reunites with family, including her mother and grandmother who she left many years ago after a heated fight during her grandfather's funeral.

The book doesn't really seem to have much rising action for most up the book, up until the end when it suddenly hits the climax and has you rushing to find out what happens. While I appreciate the tension that keeps you on the edge of your seat, it would have been nice to have more a gradual increase.

This book is a good read for those who like Christian fiction or simply want to try something new!

This book is a RITA award winner and is now available as an ebook for $2.99!
