From the Back Cover
"May I help you?" The man at the Red Cross desk looked and sounded like a clerk. It was oddly comforting.
James shook the misplaced feeling off. "I'm looking for my son."
The man pulled a box of file folders closer to him. "What is his last name?"
The man selected a folder and scanned the contents. "We don't have anyone by that name listed."
It had to be a mistake. "You're sure?"
"I'm sorry, sir. No one by that name has registered with us."
James took a deep breath. "What does that mean?"
"It means he did not do as the park service and the Red Cross asked everyone who was here during the quake to do."
It wasn't the man's fault Chuck was so irresponsible. James turned away and sighed. Now what? It was closing in on 10 pm, and his plan hadn't gone anywhere past finding Chuck and locking him in the car for the trip back home.
He hadn't the first clue where to look next.
About the Author
M.M. Justus's first visit to Yellowstone National Park was at age four, where it snowed on the Fourth of July. She spent most of her childhood summers in the back seat of a car, traveling with her parents to almost every national park west of the Mississippi and a great many places in between.
She holds degrees in British and American literature and history and library science, and a certificate in museum studies. In her other life, she works as an independent museum curator, and finds museums a great source of adventures of all kinds.

In "Finding Home," we see James McManis's perspective. He genuinely cares about his son, although his way of showing it is open to criticism. He follows the young man to Yellowstone, hoping to rescue him -- from the earthquake; he doesn't yet know about the time travel -- and can't do it, of course, since Charles/Chuck is gone several generations into the past. James does meet people, learn things, and show himself to be more of a sympathetic character than we had thought.
M.M. Justus' series was different. Her plotting throughout made everything tie back together without loose ends. The stories - Repeating History, True Gold, Homesick, and Finding Home - all deal with an extended family and the time loop certain characters find themselves in. I enjoyed all the books, but I must say, Finding Home was a big surprise.
James' character in the first book, Repeating History, was such that I didn't think I'd like an entire book about him. He redeemed himself from a seemingly cold, rigid father to a concerned, caring dad searching for his son. I really didn't know how Justus would pull off such feat, but she did it in a way that kept the character intact. And I loved the fact James kept some of his old habits while processing the changes he was undergoing.
The books are all rich in well-researched history and the attention to the physical details of the surroundings will make you feel like you've traveled to Yellowstone, Montana, Denver, Alaska (in different books, of course).
I'm glad to have such a satisfying ending to this series. And I'm sad to have an ending to this series. I look forward to the next book Justus decides to write.
