Falling Home by Karen White Review and Giveaway

Fifteen years ago, Cassie Madison left home and never looked back.  The night of prom, she waited for her boyfriend Joe to pick her up, but instead a note was delivered to her.  Cassie's sister Harriet and Joe left to elope.  Vowing never to forgive her sister, Cassie left and had made a new life for herself in New York.

She's successful, beautiful and engaged.  So when her sister wakes her at 3 am one night with a phone call, Cassie knows it can't be good.  Their dad is dying and he wants Cassie to come home.  She does, but seeing Joe and Harriett after so many years has passed brings back all of the hurt and humiliation.  Getting to know her nieces and nephews is a bonus, but when Cassie's dad passes away and leaves her the house and everything in it, she feels trapped.

Doctor Sam Parker has always had fond feelings for Cassie and when the two are together, sparks fly.  But Cassie is engaged, and has no plans to stay in town.  Her home is in New York and she'll sell the family home if she has to in order to return.  But when something happens that threatens the family's way of life, Cassie has a hard decision to make.  Stay or Run again?

Falling Home is a poignant and captivating story.  The characters are compelling, realistic, complicated and uplifting.  This story captured my heart and the characters play across my mind, even after the last page.  If you read one book this fall, read this one! I highly recommend it!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
