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.
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.
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!
