At the center of Home Again is Madelaine - a brilliant cardiologist, a loving mother, a tender friend, and a woman full of self-doubt. It is also the story of her confused and angry daughter, Lina, and of the two very different men Madelaine loves: Francis, a priest searching for his faith, and Angel, a talented but cynical man with a broken heart. When tragedy suddenly brings them all together, they must learn to forgive the betrayals of the past and find the courage to love again.

“All the world loves Kristin Hannah.” (Newsday)
This is a great story, the people in this story will grab you. She puts hearts and souls in the people on the pages.
I cried almost all the way through it.
I Heard That
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.
This book was average when compared to "Winter Garden", "Firefly Lane" and "Night Road", which were outstanding. The book was predictable and unmemorable. I am not sure I would have read more of Hannah's books if this one was the first I read (heard). The narrator drove me crazy when she ended every sentence on a high note as if it was a question. This was especially true of the main character. The narrator made the main character, a cardiac surgeon, sound indecisive and air headed.
