In a small town, reputation is everything. In her latest novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr explores the burden placed on a young man returning home to face his mistakes—the first step in claiming the life he was meant to live ...
At the age of nineteen, Seth Sileski had everything. A superb athlete and scholar, handsome and popular, he was the pride of Thunder Point. Destined for greatness, he lost it all in a terrible accident that put an end to his professional football career when it had barely begun. The people in his hometown have never forgotten what might have been.
Seth has come to terms with the turns his life has taken. But now he's been presented with an opportunity to return home and show his father—and the people of Thunder Point—he's become a better, humbler version of his former self.
Winning over his father isn't the only challenge. Seth must also find a way to convince his childhood neighbor and best friend, Iris McKinley, to forgive him for breaking her heart. With his homecoming, will Seth be able to convince the town, his family and especially Iris that he's finally ready to be the man who will make them all proud?
The Homecoming by Robyn Carr
The charm of the Thunder Point series is the feeling of coming home. Carr has written this series around a small Oregon coastal town where everyone knows everyone's business and is always willing to lend a helping hand. The Homecoming is a slight step away from this hometown feel. Although it is a returning home to Thunder Point story, these characters have been absent from previous books so you need to meet and learn all about them from this story itself. I enjoyed The Homecoming but didn't have the same immediate connection to the past characters. Many of the previous characters which normally play large secondary roles are absent or slightly mentioned as well. Carr has definitely taken us away from the familiar to something new.
I received this ARC copy of The Homecoming from Harlequin MIRA in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication August 26, 2014.
