He was finally coming. He told Desiree that once her task was complete, he would be there to pick her up. And they could finally be together forever. Desiree was finally going to be with the one she loved. But what did she need to do? And how was she going to figure out what it was?

Desiree’s life has been less than perfect. All she wanted was to find true love. To everyone on the outside she was beautiful, fun loving, and the life of the party. On the inside Desiree is afraid. Her fear of rejection places her in situations that will alter her life forever and possible tear her family apart. She has the love and support of a good friend, but more importantly she has her prayers. As Desiree makes changes in her own life, she slowly realizes that her dreams are within her reach. Journey with Desiree as she reflects on her life, through both good and bad times, to discover what is really preventing her from having the ultimate dream. True love!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful June 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is such a powerful story of forgiveness, redemption and how God loves us no matter what. A lot of us try to find that one true love and want someone to love us and that is what Desiree was looking for, but she found out the hard way that jumping into a relationship with every man you met is not the answer. She had a very hard life but her friends were always there for her and even though she didn't realize God was always there.

There were some parts that were very hard to read because I went through some of that (watching my mom be abused), but it reminded me how God can take an awful experience and turn it in good. Desiree realized that at the end too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure JOY! A MUST read. July 3, 2012
By Emme
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow! Wow! Wow! Francine Rivers and Nicholas Sparks look out! If you enjoyed Nicholas Spark's The Last Song, you will absolutely love, love, love The Road Home! I did! I did not want to put the book down! Have you ever read a book that you did not want to stop reading? But then when it was over you did not want it to end? Well, The Road Home is one of those books! This story has drama, suspense, romance! Very believable. Very relatable. A very good read. The characters are so realistic. Very well written. I could see the action happening as I turned each page. I was drawn into this book from the beginning. And enjoyed every moment. I was hanging on every word. I enjoyed reading The Road Home so much that I would love to see it turned into a series and a movie! It is a treasure, and you will want to read it again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars A woman's journey to God July 23, 2012
By cynthia
Format:Kindle Edition
The Road Home does a fantastic job of covering the greatest mistakes we as humans can ever make, and addressing each one delicately and concisely, and reaffirming the truth that no sin is greater than God's forgiveness. It is the life story of Desiree, from her years in college to her deathbed, and the struggles she faces with pregnancies, relationships, marriage, and forgiving those that have not only hurt her, but her children. With the ever-constant presence of her closest friend, Aimee, Desiree slowly makes her way to God and learns the greatness of His power and love.

My only frustration with The Road Home is that at times the writing feels rushed, like Matos is composing an objective synopsis rather than letting a dramatic scene unfold. The book is 183 pages, but holds all the potential to easily be 4-5 times the length by delving into the deeper emotions and development of the characters and creating dialogue from scenes that sometimes seem to only summarize an event. I guess I'm sad that I didn't have more to read.

Matos' characters are all very relatable and very human, reminding us that even those we think lead perfect lives have struggles, doubts, and secrets they try to forget. I would recommend The Road Home to any romantic, any lover of books, anyone struggling with forgiveness, anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional Journey July 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Desiree is one tough cookie. She subscribes to the theory that Girls Just Want to Have Fun. And fun she has until her indiscretions land her directly into the role of Single Mom. Best friend, Aimee, is always coming to her rescue and continues to do so as long as needed.

Aimee is a constant positive influence in Desiree's life, gently demonstrating God's love and mercy. Desiree's absent father and emotionally/geographically distant mother have left her cold and disinterested in what God has to offer. She's been looking for love in way too many wrong places.

Just when Desiree thinks all of her problems are solved by marrying Sergio, her troubles are just beginning. She has no idea how twisted he actually is.

This book certainly held my interest straight through to the very emotional ending. It is a story of friendship, love, spiritual need, compassion for others, and a reminder that our blood family members are not chosen by us, and we may not agree with their choices--but we love them in spite of differences and need to show them grace. Not one of us knows when we will be called Home, so don't waste time on bitterness and lack of forgiveness.

Looking forward to more from this author!

4.0 out of 5 stars If you liked 'The Notebook', you'll love this book! June 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What a story! This sweeping chronicle of Desiree's life grabbed me from page one, and I marveled at all she was able to endure. Her journey toward forgiveness, though marked with many sorrows, stirred my heart. It left me with the same feeling I had at the end of watching 'The Notebook', which was, "Let's do that again."
