Finding Homeby Melanie Rose
Synopses & Reviews
What if a secret in your past is the key to healing a broken family’s heart?
When a car crash during a blizzard leaves a woman stranded in the New England countryside with no memory, she’s taken in by Vincent, a banker whose adorable six-year-old daughter, Jadie, has cystic fibrosis and hasn’t spoken since her sister died and her mother disappeared two years ago. But when this stranger arrives, calling herself Kate, Jadie suddenly begins speaking again—claiming that she can talk to her sister’s ghost and that Kate is an angel sent to help them. As Kate struggles with startling flashbacks to a past life that doesn’t seem to be her own, powerful questions arise: What happened to Jadie’s mother? What secrets is Vincent hiding? Why has Jadie been silent for so long?
Finding Home is an involving and heartfelt drama about a stranger helping a complicated family to heal—and how the most unexpected moments in life are the ones that lead us home.
"Rose (Could It Be Magic?) tackles reincarnation, hypnosis, and past lives in her intriguing second novel. After driving her car off an icy road during a New England blizzard, 'Kate' wakes up at the house of financier Vincent James with a bump on her head, unable to remember who she is, where she was headed, or what happened to her. Vincent takes a deep interest in Kate after her presence provokes his mute daughter, Jadie, to break her silence. Two years earlier, Jadie ceased to speak after the death of her sister, Amber, from cystic fibrosis and the sudden disappearance of their grief-stricken mother. With the help of a pair of obliging neighbors, Kate begins to try not only to piece together her past but also to probe the secrets of the James family. The compelling air of mystery compensates for romance novel clichÃ©s and predictable plot turns. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
Filled with provocative topics handled with a light touch, "Finding Home" is a heartfelt family drama about a stranger entering the life of a family that's struggling and helping both parent and child to heal.
