Book Description

Finalist for the 2010 Bronte Prize for Romantic Fiction

In a small town, everyone knows everything about everybody. Or do they?

For twenty years, Kate Doyle has been haunted by the night when she was forced to flee from her tiny Virginia home town and abandon her childhood sweetheart, Reed Fitzgerald. So when Kate, now in her mid-30s, escapes her unhappy life in Washington, DC and takes a much-needed vacation, the last thing she expects is to be reunited with Reed. Now, under the warm clear Caribbean sun, amid ancient churches and pink flamingos, Kate and Reed seek to revive the love that they thought was gone forever.

But will small-town secrets ruin their last chance for happiness? Woven into the modern tale of Kate and Reed are the tales of those who came before them. Their mothers: teenagers in the chaotic 1960s, best friends who are in love with the same man, although only one of them knows it. Reed's grandmother: already a bitter old woman by the 1930s, she would do anything to carry on the family name...and would drive away anyone who came between her and her grandson. And even the founder of the town: in 1865, what guilty secret drove one man to bring his two daughters across the ocean from Ireland and settle in the dark Virginia hills?

At its heart, Homesong is the story of a small town: its lies and truths, its beginnings and endings. It's about proud secrets, unrestrained joy, and the old adage that you may leave your home, but it never really leaves you.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Weeks after I finished Homesong, my thoughts kept going back to Kate and Reed. The characters are so alive I felt as if I've known them all my life. Homesong is a wonderful blend of romance and mystery. God has certainly blessed Ms. Crews with an amazing talent for weaving an intricate web of suspense and intrigue. Move over Nora Roberts and make room for Misha Crews. --Phyllis Sersen

Misha Crews has created a saga that seeps into the reader's soul. It is at once a tale of youth and innocence and first love, of ragged and mellow elder years, and of the time between. Crews takes us through the endless drama that is life with seamless ease. She draws out people's lives in a thorough yet gentle way, reminiscent of storytelling on languid summer nights as she wraps the listener in a strong, gentle voice. She knows where she's taking you, with twists and turns along the way, and leaves you knowing you have made friends for life. I cannot wait for her next book! --Helen Collins

I had trouble putting it down. I am duly impressed! There is a lot of intensity to Homesong; lots of mystery and questions, even though you know that everything has to turn out alright. And in the end, it all comes together! Whew! I hope that Misha is working on her next book. I think her readers are going to demand it! --Linda Konzik

5.0 out of 5 stars It touches the heart of every romantic February 16, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I received Homesong as a Christmas gift from my niece with the promise that "it is really good, you've gotta read it." She was right. I couldn't put it down, but at the same time not wanting to read so fast that it ended. The story of love lost and then found again touches the heart of every romantic and a bit of mystery placed just right keeps the reader riveted to the pages. All the characters are realistic and interesting.
I am very impressed that this is Misha's first novel. She is a gifted writer and I wish Misha continued success with her future novels. Misha Crews has been added to my list of favorite authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Homesong" It doesn't get any better than this! December 23, 2008
Format:Paperback
I loved this book! I have and will continue to recommend this book to everyone. It's a romantic blend with a secret mystery. Ms. Crews has that unique ability to create characters the reader will love and hate.
Once you pick it up to read, allow yourself plenty of time, because you simply won't put it down! The bad side of this is: Ms. Crews can not write fast enough to satisfy this reader's thirst. Hurry up with the next one, I can't wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious descriptions! December 23, 2008
Format:Paperback
Misha Crews has written such a wonderful first novel that I can't wait for the next one. Her adept ability to write an engrossing and interesting story pulls you forward so you can't wait to continue. Her descriptions of the things and experiences of life are what set her apart from other writers. You find yourself comparing your own life and the times those things happened to you with how she has written it. I stopped for a moment here and there throughout the story, re-experiencing my own sense-experience of various sounds and sensations that she had just described so beautifully.
This story worked in every way. I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Fan of Misha Crews~ March 3, 2013
By Seagull
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was able to get this book for my kindle and thought it looked very interesting and would keep my attention, unlike so many others have. Being a person that has several favorite authors through the years, I have now added Misha to my list. The book was very well written, kept me clicking my pages on my kindle and would recommend it for a great read to anyone that likes a well rounded story. Could easily relate to the characters and it was not one of those what I call "far fetched" hard to believe stories. Am an avid reader for many years and am sure that if you get this book you will not be disappointed. Happy Reading~

3.0 out of 5 stars A fair read February 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story was rather choppy. It bounced between different generations and even though I am an avid reader, I had some difficulty in understanding the connection even when the author attempted to make the connections. I didn't dislike the book ,but I didn't really like it either.

This is actually Clyde's wife writing this. The plot was interesting but it kept backflashing and sometimes that had nothing to do with the plot. She really should have done this as a trilogy or series of novellas. I finally just flipped through the back story because I really didn't care.

I really enjoyed this book with all of its twists an turns. The many secrets that came out ever so slowly but surely made for a beautifully poignant love story.
