A heartwarming story that celebrates how life-changing friendships can be found in all seasons of life.
The sprawling lake home Lynn Lundberg built with her husband has been an epicenter of joyful family life, from summer holidays spent around the water to cookies baked in the kitchen with grandchildren in the fall. But since her husband's sudden passing two years ago, Lynn has been lost in the grief and solitude she feels without him at home. She doesn't want to sell the big family place, but she can't exist there on her own much longer.
After hearing of a new way of living - where single women share responsibilities as housemates - Lynn thinks she's found the answer to her prayers. Soon she meets two ladies with whom she could begin this journey. Angela Bishop, a successful real estate agent accustomed to the finer things in life, has just been jilted by her husband of 25 years. Judith Rutherford, who has devoted her adulthood to caring for her ailing father, must leave the only home she's known now that he has passed.
These three women seek a place to grieve, to laugh, and to be renewed. But coming from such differing circumstances, will the new challenges they face undo their plans? Or will they begin a friendship to see them through the years to come in this Someday Home?

"Snelling writes about the foibles of human nature with keen insight and sweet honesty." (National Church Library Association)
Lauraine Snelling is as always a poignant writer whose books do not mirror each other just using different names and places, has put together another timely novel that addresses current issues of life through her characters. Though her characters have a deep faith and acknowledgement of God they seem to encounter struggles of faith in a very realistic manner .....
story of 3 women deciding to live together as roommates in more mature years... the backgrounds of each, and learning give and take, the importance of forgiveness...inclusion of grandkids, families...etc. narrator ok. a different type of book that made me think of what it would be like in a situation like this.
I had just listened to a violent and disturbing mystery. This story was all good, very sweet story, had some spirituality included. It made me feel peaceful, spiritual and calm.....
I liked her soft spoken voice.
Leap of faith
In the middle
I didn't really have a favorite. They were all well developed which is on of Ms. Snelling's strong points.
Fine except Lynne
I could have but I enjoyed having it last a bit. I listen when I drive and walk and now I never forget my cell phone!
The narration was fine with the exception of Lynn. She was only in her 50's yet read as though she was much older. A very poor depiction of a 50's voice.
The storyline was good, but the main character, Lynn, was performed as a woman 20-30 years older than she was. This was a major distraction to me. Even old souls have young voices when they are young.
