Revell Blog Tour and Book Review: The Homecoming

THE HOMECOMING is a love story wrapped up against the back drop of WWII. Can this family move past it’s grief to embrace the new life God has for them?

I enjoyed meeting up with the characters from the previous book, THE UNFINISHED GIFT. The characters were very much the same and it was easy to slip back in and join their world. I loved the research done on this book. It was clear and concise just what era you are in without being bombarded with historical facts.

But I also thought the book a bit simplistic. This novel had the great potential to really delve deeper into the characters and bring forth that emotional angst, and I would have liked it if that had been the case. I think the turmoil in the love story could have been fleshed out a bit more, I felt a bit rushed

But aside from that, I did enjoy the novel. The characters are warm and inviting and I was glad to have the second chance to meet up with them

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to Revell publishers for my copy to review.
