    A Must READ!!!

    I just finished 'No Place Like Home' and I am going too read it again!!! I have read hundreds of books and this one touched me like no other. I laughed and I cried and I cried again. I will never forget the relationships that these characters had with each other. Bravo! Too a wonderful read.

    Jewel of a relationship drama

    As a teen over two decades ago, Jewel Sabatino fled her Pueblo, Colorado home never looking back over the years. However, the Greenwich Village resident knows that it is time to go home. So Jewel, her teenage son Shane, and her dying best friend Michael Shaunessey return to her hometown not sure of the welcome she will receive. <P>In Pueblo, Jewel is back in the fold of her Italian family except for her unforgiving father, who has not spoken to her in all this time. He refuses to welcome back his daughter. The rest of the family opens their arms to Jewel and her entourage. Michael¿s brother Malachi arrives to help his sibling through his final days. However, as death is in the air, renewal is too as Malachi and Jewel begin to fall in love, but will then family crisis keep a relationship from fully forming between them? <P> NO PLACE LIKE HOME is an insightful relationship drama that plays out on several stages. The key cast is a warm ensemble though they seem stiff at times, but the story line belongs to the lead protagonist. Jewel feels like sandwich meat trapped between the two generations that surround her as well as trying to come to grips with her different types of love for the Shaunessey siblings. Barbara Samuel shows that with love you can go home even if much has changed in the interim. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Absolutely Excellent!

    This was an excellent story ... so good in fact that once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. I laughed & cried throughout the whole book. Jewel is a main character who is easy to love and her sizzling connection with Malachi is yummy! I'll be reading this one again.

    This book was very detailed and had many different struggles. It was very interesting watching the relationships grow through out the book and the changes the characters make for the better .

    Absolute joy to read!

    I never wanted to put this book down. It was a great story from beginning to end. I cried towards the end of the book and laughed throughout the story. Barbara Samuel is a true gem!

    I Laughed, I Cried and I've Read it 3 Times!!

    This is an absolutely fantastic book written by an author who makes the difficult chore of writing look so easy. It is the best I've ever read about a 'woman's journey' and will definitely be on my keeper shelf for 4th, 5th - 10th ad infinitum reads. Thank you, Barbara!
