Someday Home

None of us ever thinks that when we arrive at the later stages of our life, that the man we married might not be with us. Through death or simply a change of plans, we never imagine that we might face our final days alone. Sure family and friends might still be close by, but the thought of sharing a home alone is a bit more than we might want in our life. Who will we share those quiet moments of the night with, when everyone else has gone home?

This is the premise facing Lynn Lundberg, a very busy woman who has managed not only to raise quite a few children and seen them begin their own families, but also still helps keeps the books of the families plumbing business. Her husband was unexpectedly taken from her without warning and now struggles to come to terms with her feelings of anger towards God and her husband. Perhaps if he would have been more dililgent about taking better care of himself, they might have caught the aneurism before it took his life. Grandchildren abound each afternoon as she helps them bake cookies and host family dinners, but when they all head back home, the house is simply a reminder of what her life looks like. Alone and empty of purpose. They have suggested that she simply sell the large log home on the lake and opt for something smaller, but she simply can't give up the notion, she is meant to stay here.

When she is given the idea of sharing her home with other women who don't want to go it alone in the later years, she believes if might just be the perfect solution. But she will only trust that God will bring just the right people to her for this to work, and within weeks, she finds Angela Bishop, a truly successful woman who has tried for years to be the perfect wife or the appearance of one according to her husband, but will never get it right. Now it seems on the eve of their twenty-fifth anniversary, he drops the bombshell that he is trading up to a new model and has filed for divorce.

Judith Rutherford, has spent her entire life caring for her ailing and aging parents believing his promise that if she cares for them, she will be well cared for and compensated when they are gone. Unfortunately like most women, Judith believed that promise and dedicated her life to a man who never appreciated all she had to offer and when he passed away, left her with nothing and a feeling she would never amount to anything.  Is it possible for these three very different women to find a common bond that will allow them all to share not only a home, but very different paths for their future?

I received Someday Home by Lauraine Snelling compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review of this novel and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. I absolutely LOVED this story of three incredibly wonderful women who feel defined by the life of their past and thus their self worth follows when things fall apart in their lives. It teaches us that we must be willing to pick up the pieces and begin to realize that a new chapter is evolving in our lives that we must embrace as the new normal and face the challenges together. This is such a poignant novel of hope, faith and love found in the bounds of what these three will develop as they explore what God has planned for them in the future, one to prosper and not harm them, but to give them a future and a new hope. Well worth every single 5 out of 5 stars and would highly recommend this one for your summer reading list!
