Publisher's Summary

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.

CANNOT COMPARE TO THE NIGHTINGALE!

Any additional comments?

Disappointing as I listened to the Nighingale and it was amazing! This story reminded me of a harlequin romance.

Life UNEXPECTED.Excellent book

If you could sum up Home Again in three words, what would they be?

Love, Faith and Understanding

Who was your favorite character and why?

Francis, all you need to do is open you eye's and see the good everything he brings to life.

Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby – was your favorite?

Magdelaine so strong and willing to do anything to reach and help those she loves. Asking for nothing, Wants only the best for her family, and looking after all these years of raising a child on her own, she stands for a lot of us women that endured what she did and still standing today.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes, and I went to bed with tears after reading it. Good and bad.

Any additional comments?

This will bring real life to your door steps. It's not what you expected, but neither is life. To many times we get caught up in books that take us far away from this. But then we need to see how people handle what we deal with almost everyday. Sometimes I think people that are larger than life are out of touch with reality. After this, I don't think so. It's happened to us all. This is a A teenager out to show you she knows it all, a hard working single mother and a the father showing up when he don't want to be a part of his home town life, and his brother, all smiles and willing to do anything to bring it all in front of their eyes. And he does. . Expect your emotions to be torn here, bring out tissues and all of us has been thru this. the way it's narrated was so remarkable, it helped me at least understand why everyone did was needed at the time and what they had to in this family. All families deal with trauma that leaves us with life altering decisions. It's all here, hate,love, understanding and mostly sacrifice. I loved this book and I cried many times knowing it hurt to lose someone you care so deeply for. But in the end we are given something more in return. They never leave us..They see us thru so much in a round about way. Read it. It's worth it.. I promise you. it's worth it and cry and enjoy this little book of wondrous joy it brings. I warned you.. it's excellent to read, but bring out the tissue box. It's life they are dealing with. What we experience day to day at times. I would of gave it 5 stars, but at times, I think it should of just moved on. I cried for them to heal and they should of earlier.

I did not enjoy this book. I would not recommend it. It was too predictable and milk toast. I would not recommend this book.

Mom & Daughter Big Fans

We absolutely have become a big fan of Kristin Hannah. My mother loves to read and I drive alot so the audible is perfect to me. Since buying her books I want to drive all night and my mother doesn't sleep. All of her books are that good. I would highly recommend any of them. Thank you for each of your books that has us both sitting on the edge of our seats .

Wanted to love it...

I like a good story and wanted to love to it... but it was just to predictable. In every chapter as the narrator (who did a good job for the characters) spoke or read the sentence I was thinking “ of course “ or “seriously.” More twist and turns would have made this book better. I finished it because it was part of a book club and I hoped for a better ending...
I won’t choose unfortunately another Kristin Hannah book unless I hear RAVE reviews

Home Again

This was a fantastic book, well written but very predictable. I enjoyed every minute of this book and did not want it to end. I would love to see a second book about Angel and Mad and Lena growing up and growing old together.

Home Again.

Overall, it was a good story, not her best, in my opinion. The last chapter got too sappy for me so I didn't finish it.
