Last One Home by Debbie Macomber
What a stunningly realistic and heartfelt story of three sisters finding their way back into each other’s lives.
Cassie is the main focal point of this story. She left home young, pregnant and with an abusive boyfriend/husband. Running for her life to save herself and her daughter, Cassie’s family turns their back on her in her time of need. In their defense, the family didn’t know Cassie circumstances but that she didn’t return home when her father passed away, causing deep hurt and resentment.
Cassie is finally getting her life back together. She has an opportunity with Habitat for Humanity which will finally give her and her daughter a real home. A difficult job foreman immediately thinks the worst of Cassie but she’s been through enough to let him get in the way of her goal. As Cassie deals with the difficult foreman, they realize there is something between them that can heal each other’s heart.
Years of life ups and downs as well as a lack of communication has torn Cassie, Karen and Nicole apart. When Cassie is unexpectedly contacted about her parents furniture, left in estate, she jumps at the chance to claim some of her history which leads to reopening the doors of communication between the siblings.
Each sibling story is revealed and all is not what it seems. The sisters discover strength in one another while they rebuild tenuous sibling bond.
A few of the storylines felt incomplete, but overall it was a wonderful read.
Last One Home is a sweet and tender story of life, love and family born and family chosen.
