Publisher's Summary

No Place Like Home tells the unforgettable story of a family bound together by tradition - and the emotional journey of an estranged daughter risking everything for a second chance at life and love.

Twenty-one years ago Jewel Sabatino left her childhood behind and never looked back. After a magical taste of fame, she found herself alone with a son to raise and not much else. She survived with the help of Michael, her one true friend. But now Michael is too sick to care for himself, and Jewel has run out of options. She leaves New York for the hills of Colorado, unsure if the family she ran from will welcome her back.

For Jewel, coming home is falling back into a world that smells of Italian restaurants and home-baked pies. It is the laughter of sisters preparing for a summer wedding, and the peaceful haven for a treasured soul mate's last days. It also means facing the unforgiving eyes of a father betrayed by his favorite child - and letting go of a son who is ready to become a man. But most of all, it is the love she discovers in her own wary heart when Michael's brother Malachi unexpectedly arrives on her doorstep.

    "The story makes my heart sigh"
    What did you love best about No Place Like Home?

    I love the story of how family is all types of things, but the most important is that it comes in all sizes and shapes and the most important is the the love. I read this story about a year ago and I never forgot how it made me feel so good and at the same time sad at how change in life can make one feel funny and yet it is unexpected and surprising.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of No Place Like Home?

    When MIchael goes to the river to die, I found it so touching and yet so heartfelt that he was willing to die the way he wanted. I also like it when he visited Malikai and Julie in their dreams until they get together, and than he asked them to name their baby after him.


    What does Kristine Thatcher bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has the gentle and sensuous voice that made the character what they needed to be. It also gave the dimension that the story required to see the relatives and the relationships the way the should be.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Life is a recipe that brings joy.


    Any additional comments?

    Barbara Samuel's books are heartfelt and full of all the feelings one can have while reading a story. You will like her stories so much that you won't want to stop listening until the very end.
