Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Before Dayna Wilson started dating Warren she was married to Brent. She was left with much heartache after the divorce and it had taken years to get to a point where she could function again. Now Brent is back; he showed up on her door asking for forgiveness. Why now? And will Dayna be able to find it in her heart to forgive this man who hurt her so deeply?

The thoughts that popped into my head while reading:

1. Brent couldn't apologize to Dayna way before this? So, if he hadn't been ill would he have ever apologized for hurting Dayna the way he did?
2. Why is it that when a married man commits adultery everyone looks at the other woman as if she's more guilty? Yes, she's wrong, but c'mon now, the man knows he has a wife.
3. If the author would have shown what happened in Chapter 29 instead of having Audrey tell what happened, I would have been on the edge of my seat.
4. Christians should be willing to forgive (Colossians 3:13, Matthew 6:14) but that doesn't mean it will be easy. Depending on the situation, forgiveness can be downright difficult.

For the most part, I was into the story - Chapter 27 is where Adams really got my attention - but every now and then it got a bit slow and that's the reason for the 3.5 rating. Coming Home reminds followers of Christ how important it is to take our problems to God in prayer - In the Name of Jesus. The story also has messages on forgiveness and how to grow in the Lord. I like how honest the author was when it comes to Christian couples waiting until marriage to have sex (it can be difficult to resist temptation), and what I liked most was that the author showed what true friendship is all about.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Dayna was married to Brent, she was happy and lived with high hopes for their future, until Brent cheated on her and walked out of her life in a cold manner. Then, Dayna suffered through pain, anguish, and guilt. Seven years later, after Dayna moved on, Brent appears on her doorsteps with flowers in his hands. As many realize, the trauma of Divorce is very much like experiencing the death of a loved one, especially if one partner still loved the other. Imagine having to relive the same trauma several years later? Her ex-husband walks back into her life with his new wife, asking for forgiveness. Is the suffering and the pain during a Divorce not enough to endure, and just how strong are we? There are many tests thrown to us in this lifetime, and the choices we make depends on our inner-strength to cope and heal. I highly recommend "COMING HOME" to all those who enjoy inspirational stories, combined with uplifting messages in the process of healing painful wounds. Stacy Hawkins Adams delivers a novel with an engaging story that grabs the reader's attention in the first chapter. The characters come to life through the challenges they meet, and the decisions they make, based on faith. The reader is invited on an emotional roller-coaster ride through the trauma that the characters are faced with. When the story comes to an end, there are thought-provoking issues left behind to ponder. The author portrays harsh lessons many of us go through and the outcome of how we live the rest of our lives will depend on how we handle different situations, and how strong we can be. In addition, the power of forgiveness can indeed be the golden key to a new beginning.

My first CF novel was by S.H.A. From the start, her writing style and familiar characters pulled me right in. Adams has a real gift for character development, and for telling the most painful stories in ways that resonate with the reader, and still provide some comfort throughout the story's arc and not just at the conclusion. Hers is work that I do not ever want to out down once I pick it up. This story is no different. Dayna is a woman who has endured a heartbreak that many women can relate to. And now, years after moving on and happily in a relationship, she find herself pulled right back into a familiar, if not confusing place. That she is intrigued and feels somewhat obligated to comply with another person`s requests of her time, despite how doing so affects her own life, is also telling. There are a lot of Dayna`s out here, thinking they've moved completely on from past hurts, but so easily drawn back in. I love that Adams shows Dayna`s growth through her own experiences, as well as through the supporting characters` experiences. All in all, thus is another strong outing from Adams. I've just one-clicked the 2nd book in the series. If she writes it, I'll read it.

Stacy, I love your writings, but this book is dull! I really wanted to like this book because one of my favorite all time reads is "Watercolored Pearls". I am not writing her off but I just could not get into this book at all.

I love Ms. Hawkins Adams work. Her characters always seem so life like...almost familiar. This new series took me off guard because of what the characters experienced. I found myself feeling angry and frustrated at different points with the characters which is a great sign a great writer for me.

I confess that I am one of those people who yell at the screen in the movies, so imagine me doing it...or trying not to do it at a book. Stacy Hawkins Adams always finds a way to drop a few nuggets of wisdom on you through her characters which makes me wonder does she personally know anyone like her characters. I would love to see this one in film.

I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the series.
