From the Back Cover

Hungry ... Homeless ... Heartbroken

After a troubling encounter with a pregnant teen, Sheila Peterson-Brooks hurries from the crisis pregnancy center into the frigid Minnesota winter where she is mugged and left for dead. After a frantic search, Richard, her husband, finds her, and the police quickly nab the mugger ...

A hungry, homeless teen. The brother of the pregnant girl Sheila had just counseled.

The girl pleads for her brother, and Sheila and Richard choose not to press charges. Instead, they open their home to the boy, a move that could cost them their possessions, and their hearts.

And, in the process, teach them the true meaning of home.

Format: Paperback
If you enjoy the genre, Women’s Fiction, then I’d like to recommend Hungry for Home by Brenda S. Anderson, the final book in the Coming Home Series.

I’ve never been homeless like Austin, nor have I been as rich as Richard and Shelia, but through Hungry for Home, I got a taste of each, and was also able to feel what it might be like to be in the shoes of each. I wrestled with some of their choices, rejoiced in the good news, and wanted to advise them in their tough choices. With fiction, you can immerse yourself in a situation to see how you might react. In this story, there were actions they took that I found I’d be cautious, even resistant in, which got me thinking about truly faith-filled actions. Fiction sometimes allows readers to test their bravery through the situations cast on the page, some ideal, some not so ideal.

I wanted to keep reading to find out how it would turn out leading to a few late nights. I think this is a good indication of a worthy read. There were shockers/unexpected turns.

I like how Anderson brings up the sacrifices that come with huge promotions, and how these affect the spouse and children. So often people gloss over these issues making it seem like you can have it all, which is totally not true. Someone or something loses or is lost in the choices we make. I like that Anderson isn’t afraid to tell the truth about real issues and the consequences that can follow.

Anderson also does an excellent job of capturing on the page a number of ranges of emotion.

I also appreciate how she weaves faith into her story and that her characters react realistically to crises. There was only one decision that Richard made that I thought was hasty and maybe not as realistic because of the time span involved.

Love Brenda's writing. The stories are real as are the people in them. While this was a great ending I will miss this family of characters. How about a book about Austin and/or Brittany? Keep writing and I'll keep reading.

God is “into” recycling. What a wonderful illustration, and what an amazing conclusion to the Coming Home series! God takes the trash of this world (for that is what we are, without Him) and recycles it into beautiful new creations. Regardless of what we were before, God can “recycle” us for His purposes.

Hungry for Home is a heart-tugging story. The characters are so genuine, and their circumstances so trying, you can’t help but love them and want to see things work out for them. From homelessness and hunger to teen pregnancy and drug abuse, Brenda Anderson doesn’t shy away from the realities of the world around us. Her characters see God working in and through their situations in a way that offers hope to each reader, that He is able to do the same in each of our lives as well.

Hungry for Home is the fourth book in the Coming Home series, and I am sad to see these characters’ stories end. It could probably be read as a stand-alone, but the story is much deeper when you understand the background from the previous stories. If you haven’t read them, start at the beginning. You won’t be sorry! :)

(I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts expressed here are entirely my own.)

Grab a big box of tissues before you start Hungry for Home.
My heart is heavy when I read the last word in the book It was saying goodbye to old friends.
This is the final novel in the Coming Home series. You could read it as a stand alone but to give justice to the characters you need to read the entire series.
Richard and Sheila's story is finished in this book and I cried wanting more.
Dare you ask an author to pray about continuing a series? Well I am !!!
I loved every character and how they interacted. Matt, Richard's son is precious.
The true meaning of home is demonstrated in bringing to light the plight of homeless youth in this country.
We need to help youth reach their full potential because they are our future leaders.
If I could give a rating more than 5 ,I would.
Thank you for the privilege of reviewing this series and giving me advance copies in exchange for my honest opinion.

Hungry for Home is the last book in the Coming Home Series. I had mixed emotions reading it. I have grown to fall in love with the Brooks family and I knew when it was over, I wouldn’t get to read more about them. But at the same time, I’ve grown to love them so much, I couldn’t wait to read more.
This book didn’t disappoint. It picked right up where the last one ended and I was immediately transported back into the family. I loved every single chapter and ended up reading it in one day, something I haven’t done in ages because I didn’t want to put it down. I love Sheila, Richard, Sheila’s parents, Matthew, Austin, Brittany, and the whole family. It was an amazing story and one I didn’t want to end. In fact, it hasn’t ended because I’m still thinking about them long after I read “The End.”
The book had many different layers and stories within the stories. I was entertained, I cried, laughed, thought, and was inspired and challenged and encouraged. It had all the elements of a great story because it touched me deeply and personally. I love Ms. Anderson’s style of writing and how she creates such believable characters - people who are humanly flawed yet keep looking to God to help them change more into his image daily.
I’m sad I don’t have any more in this series to look forward to, but I’m excited to think about what other series I will get to read from this amazing author. Great book - you will want to read the whole Coming Home series and have a chance to fall in love with the Brooks family like I did.
