Overview

SUZANNE MORGAN HAS LOST HERSELF. Peter Stewart has lost his way. Though from different worlds, grief has exposed their weaknesses and left them both searching for truth that heals.

Suzanne and her ten-year-old daughter, Blair, take a three-month trip to the southern coast of England to recover from the year's events. As they settle into village life, they make unexpected friends who will change them forever. Eleanor Cavendish, a wise widow who shows them motherly love. Ian Hamilton, a high-strung vicar who takes an immediate interest in Suzanne. And Peter, the charming headmaster, who gets Suzanne's attention with his tender care for Blair.

Set in rugged Cornwall, this is a story of true identity, real friendship and the nature of love.

"In a world choking with isolation, Finding the Way Home is a refreshing, restorative reminder of the power of love and forgiveness."

-Kim Newlen, Founder and President, Sweet Monday®

"Does not disappoint...Richly-layered and overflowing with life and redemption!"

-Jana Ford Muntsinger, literary publicist, Muntsinger-McClure Public Relations

"Captures humanity in its truest sense...An absolute must read."

-Shawn Boyer, Founder and CEO, snagajob.com

"Deeply satisfying."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this predictable debut novel, Byrd offers up chirpy versions of grief and transformation. Reeling from the death of her husband, Suzanne—with young daughter Blair in tow—leaves home for a three-month stay at Wisteria Cottage in Cornwall, England. Upon arriving in Cornwall, mother and daughter—rather unsurprisingly—encounter a handsome headmaster named Peter. During an early meeting with Suzanne, Peter is smitten: "a slow smile crept across face and crept towards his eyes." And soon enough, Suzanne and Blair have nearly simultaneous breakthrough moments about death and loss. Following the usual ups and downs and twists and turns, both Peter and Suzanne realize they left their homes "in search of something true." But it's not until a boating accident leaves Peter close to death that Suzanne feels "something unlike anything before." Most readers will be able to guess the end—and the middle—of this unoriginal novel. But readers looking for a sweet treat to savor on a summer afternoon will find this lightweight tale perfectly paired with some English sponge cake.

    Highly Recommended - it is a must read!

    Finding the Way Home touches the heart with it's authentic look at the complexities of the heart and relationships. Consider the comments of other readers, Finding the Way Home ".thoughtfully and artistically weaves a story of real relationships and situations.deep.not too predictable like some fiction books are." Others point out how "Byrd's character development is strong.introduced me to characters that I feel for over and over again, and showed me glimpses into my own heart. It is hard to find a book capable of so much and leaving you wanting more.the intricate relationship between Suzanne and Peter is so realistically developed that at times you are rooting for them to connect."
    I highly recommend it.
