Editorial Reviews

Review

“Engrossing and genuine, Something Like Family pays tribute to the bonds of love we often fray, but always hold dear. The uplifting story of Rave and Tuck will leave an indelible mark on your heart.” —Christine Nolfi, bestselling author of Sweet Lake and The Comfort of Secrets

“Heather Burch takes us on an emotional journey that explores the deep roots of family, honors those who serve their country, and affirms the transformative power of forgiveness. Something Like Family will resonate with you long after the story ends. An outstanding read!” —Patricia Sands, author of the Love in Provence series

“Heather Burch paints the fine details of relationship dynamics with the strokes of a master. In Something Like Family, she tells a poignant tale of love, loss, hope, and redemption that resonates beyond the final page.” —Nancy Robards Thompson, author of An Angel in Provence and What Happens in Paris

“I was drawn into this story from the very first pages. It is a lovely, heartwarming read and I highly recommend it! The story of Vietnam veteran Tuck and his estranged grandson Rave is a poignant, compelling tale of second chances, forgiveness, and the sometimes frayed but indelible bonds of family. All of the characters were authentic and true and I was thinking about them long after I turned the last page.” —Jane Healey, bestselling author of The Saturday Evening Girls Club

From the Author

It all started with a monument. The stone figure is a life-size American soldier watching over the surrounding town. He stands on a tall marble block with the names of soldiers who gave their lives in various American wars listed on the base. We found this monument while visiting North Carolina and Tennessee. A book concept began to form. I started thinking about the men who may have come home. Their sons and daughters. Their grandchildren. And suddenly I had an idea to tell a story about a grandfather searching for his estranged grandson and the inherent emotional journey that might be. And what if this grandfather was a veteran? What if he still held a bi-monthly memorial for the men he served with? The ones who didn't return home.
I wrote this book with a box of tissue on my desk. It is rooted deep in my heart and I can only hope others find it inspiring, uplifting, and a journey they are truly glad they took.
