Sam Leavitt is summoned back to Stewart Mills to fill in for Coach McDonnell. For the life of him he can't figure out why the coach wants him to fill this position. Coach McDonnell remembers the troubled kid with more black marks against him turning himself around through high school football. This kid turned his bleak future around and made something of his life. Coach McDonnell believes he has the right stuff to mentor these impressionable young men. Coach McDonnell also recognizes that Sam needs to make peace with his past.
Sam's journey towards forgiveness from the past will guarantee a healthy, happy future that includes love and family. His journey will make your heart swell with joy. His influence on the teenage football players is compassionate, positive, and insightful. He understands their teenage mentality along with the quirks that hide the impressionable young man beneath the surface. He understands peer pressure, family pressure, and community pressure. He understands low self esteem and sense of rejection. He's been there, he was that boy fourteen years ago.
Over the summer he met Jen Cooper, the school guidance counselor. Jen not only understood his background but also saw what a fine, honorable man he had become. It was too bad that they only had a short encounter. With Sam being back in town, it is the opportunity for something more.
Shannon scored big with Homecoming. It had the perfect blend of small town romance and sports romance. I loved every word, every play, and every character. I highly recommend this book.
I did really like these two. They give everything they have to the kids at the school. Making sure they're on the right track and have a solid presence in their lives to talk to when they need it or have a babysitter for their "pumpkin-babies" from health class. They're good people and have nice chemistry. It was kinda fun seeing them insisting they were just "having fun" but actually falling in love.
This was more of Sam's journey. Jen's pretty solid on the home front and with her job but Sam's pretty much up in the air with everything. I liked seeing him come home and start to mend the very broken relationship with his mother. It had me tearing up a couple times as they dealt with the pain from the past and tried to move forward as a family.
While I liked a lot of things in this one I did have some trouble. I'm used to the slower speed of the series but this one felt even slower than normal and dragged a bit. My big issue, though, was the drama that was inserted into their relationship towards the end and made out to be an insurmountable issue...when really it wasn't. I didn't buy their meltdown and what was causing it or that no one was like dude you guys split the difference...it's not a big deal.
So. Some issues but not a bad read overall. I do think the series as a whole is well worth the read. I loved watching a town in crisis start to mend itself and the people who call it home. It's not always an easy story to read but it's heartwarming watching them all come together to save their town and heal their relationships. It's a slow moving series but it's very touching and has been a lovely time I think. And it's not all doom and gloom. There are wonderful friendships that add a good bit of laughter and smiles in as well. So worthwhile even if this wasn't the strongest of the series.
