When "good" triumphs and Bird Daily is given the chance to start a new life.
Obviously, it is the main character, Timothy Wilde.
Tim really grows up during the story. His true character develops and matures. He figures out things about his family and himself that shapes the present and his future.
The story includes racism and prejudice from the era that seems very foreign in our time, and yet with many similarities. I enjoyed the presentation by Boyer and Faye's story line both very much. It's a great "who dunnit" with some history thrown in to enrich the story and enlighten the reader.
Lysa provides some really good advice on how to deal more effectively in relationships. Some relational and spiritual books can go really deep and generate long lists of do’s and don’t’s. This book is NOT like that and keeps the suggestions short, simple and practical. Lysa uses lots of real-life examples of what to do, and not do, to help the reader relate to each topic. This is a "chick" book but I found it very informative as well. My wife and I listened to it together on a recent trip and were barely able to refrain from poking each other with our elbows when the material really hit home with us. Overall, a well written and read book. Highly recommended!
Keep the "rules" or "lists" simple. The book's continual mantra is to be realistic. Perfection is NOT realistic, but progress is.
Not likely. The story begins with some intrigue and pulls the reader in wanting to know what happens. But then the painfully slow introspection of every thought and action is stated twelve different ways. It gets tiring. By the end of the story I was sick of hearing the same lines repeated by the characters, or their thoughts.
I liked Home Front, but Home Again has made me nervous concerning any future Kristin Hannah books.
The reader did a good job of helping the listener "see" the various characters. She did well with the different ages and genders.
