Editorial Reviews

Review


***GO AWAY HOME is the 2014 Readers' Favorite Silver Medal winner in Historical Fiction - Personage***

Go Away Home is the perfect story of coming home. If you've ever had bigger dreams than your current circumstances allow then you know exactly how Liddie feels living on a farm and dreaming of the big city. Excellent characters and an extremely realistic plot made this a great book that I know I will be reading again. --Samantha Rivera for Readers' Favorite

Go Away Home is all about: evolution, change, and transition points ... the atmosphere of the heartland, of family ties, and of new opportunities permeate this tale of choices, dreams realized and rejected, and how values evolve ... As a coming of age novel, Go Away Home holds more complexity than most, making it a recommendation for mature teens as well as adult readers who will find it gently compelling and highly believable." --D. Donovan, reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Go Away Home is a coming-of-age novel that is well-written, compelling, and endearing. There is a strong sense of place, excellent character development, and an engaging plot line. I highly recommend Carol Bodensteiner's new novel. -- Kara Logsden, Iowa City Public Library

I couldn't put Go Away Home down. With 40+ pages to go at my bedtime, Liddie won out. I learned so much about life in rural Iowa back then; I came to care so much about Liddie and her extended family; I appreciated Bodensteiner's ability to show -- including showing Fred through his absence. No wonder Go Away Home already garnered an award. -- Mary Kay Shanley, author of She Taught Me To Eat Artichokes
