Coming Home

I had read through the first half of Coming Home by Karen Kingsbury.  I had already read all of her Baxter series.  So a lot of the detail was familiar.

I thought “Wow, I’m going to make it through this book without any tears”.  Boy, was I wrong! 

This book turned into more than just a review of previous books.  It will pull at your heart as you journey will John Baxter and his children through one of the hardest episodes of their lives.
