Powerful emotions, reverence, honor and forgiveness highlight this spiritually inspiring tale of love, love lost, and salvation. It is a sobering look at the true cost of war. Several times while reading this book I felt a shiver run through my body. The story, and how it’s told, is that compelling. Angela Scavone does an excellent job of writing with realism and sentiment in a way that literally swept me away. A moving book that will keep you reflecting long after you’ve turned the last page.
Or so they say.
DA has another motive though, he's there to bring his (ex) wife home. His one true love.
Will Stephanie forgive? What about her best friend who she believed her ex cheated with? Will she get the closure she needs?
This story was so very much more then "just" a romance novel. No this one was the perfect read for this 4th of July weekend. A reminder of our freedom and the courageous who defend it. HUGE Kudos to Angela Scavone on this one!
Captain D. A. Douglas Aston, is hoping for a second chance with Steph. She mistakenly thinks he slept with her best friend, so he gets himself assigned with her to work his way back into her heart. But a horrific event shows them both that life is too short and that forgiveness is so important.
This book not only had me laughing and smiling, but crying too. It drives home the fact that we need to love the people that we are with, and to thank our servicemen and woman every day for what they do.
In the story, Air Force Captain Stephanie Tyler's job is to fly to war torn places and escort the bodies of the fallen soldiers home. Her dedication to her job was remarkable and even though she was a character in a story, I found myself proud of this young woman who took such good care of the men and women who gave their lives while fighting to maintain our freedom. At the same time, she is throwing herself into her job to escape her failed marriage.
Stephanie walked in on her best friend and husband in a very compromising position in their kitchen. She is extremely bitter at having lost her husband and I can see why. Her ex-husband, Douglas or DA, is also an Air Force Captain and after three years he decides it's time to get his wife back. Honestly, it was hard not to like him even when you thought he had cheated on her. Actually, I never believed that he did...anyone who had cheated would not make the effort to get her back like he did.
Douglas gets himself transferred to Stephanie's duty station and funnily enough, he gets to move in next door to her even though it took her months to get housing. I had an idea he might have had some help, but again, I couldn't help but like him and he took all her bitterness, snarkiness, etc and begin his efforts at reconciliation. As they go on missions together and or forced into close quarters, they draw closer to each other.
There is a major plot twist in the story and Douglas and Stephanie get their HEA although sadly it's through a fallen soldier. This is the only part of the book of which had been longer and had gone into more depth. I would have liked an epilogue to see what their lives were like after they were back together for good. This is just my preference and definitely not a deal breaker in the story.
I give Ms. Scavone and A Journey Home 4.5 stars. I'm so glad I read this book close to the 4th of July. It puts the sacrifice our soldiers make daily into a sharper focus and I'm exceedingly grateful for their service. My heart goes out to all the families of fallen soldiers across the US. C
Congratulations to the author on a wonderful book! I look forward to more in the future.
The H is a total moron (lying to the h about sleeping with the OW after they separated to p**s her off even though it could have destroyed any chance of him getting her back, having a picnic with the OW after what she did then forgetting who he had the picnic with) but I couldn't help but like him and root for him and the h to have a HEA. As for the h, I adored her. She was entertaining and snarky, I loved her nickname for the H.
I wish though that the author had made the OW not incredibly bitter and vindictive (because I have a hard time feeling sympathy for horrible characters when something bad happens to them) or at least made the women whose marriages she tried to destroy not be her sisters and best friend. I might have understood slightly her motive for going after other women's husbands if it hadn't been her loved ones who she was punishing for her ex husband breaking her heart.
