Set in 1969, when the Vietnam War was taking place, April Harrington finds herself leaving her asinine fiancé at the alter and going back to her family’s vacation home, Bliss. Because Bliss has so many good memories associated with it, April hopes to find refuge and try to pull her life back together. When she returns, she finds the family home in a state of neglect, as her parents used all the money they had to finance her wedding. With that guilt and the guilt she has harbored for her deceased brother, Andrew, April feels her life unraveling. The only familiar comfort she finds is in Hale, a long-time friend to both her and Andrew. But Hale has his own guilt and demons bringing him down – and a secret that may ruin the relationship he has and the love he wants from April. Can April and Hale find peace and love that truly lasts forever?
Home Again by Kathleen Shoop, although short, packed so many emotions – happiness, sadness, guilt and most of all love. I absolutely loved this beautiful story! It was so easy to get carried away in the drama that unfolded within the pages of this book. April and Hale make the perfect couple and I was cheering them on from the very beginning. They both deserved a happily ever after we all crave. Home Again is a short and sweet story that I would recommend to anyone who loves a timeless romance.
