Overview


Deep in the Shenandoah Valley, the present and the past are as restless as the river mists. And when they collide, the heart is the only compass pointing home.
 
For nurse Ginger Martin, her late husband’s farm is both a treasured legacy and the harbinger of an uncertain future. Since he was recently killed in Iraq, every day is fraught with grief that won’t abate. Keeping the farm going and nourishing her children’s hopes without him seems as impossible as having dreams for the future—or going back into the past....
 
By a curious coincidence, a stranger appears in Ginger’s life, always showing up to help in unexpected and much-needed ways. He says he’s a soldier, lost and trying to make his way home, but Ginger understands that Samuel is a kindred spirit, longing to repair a life interrupted. The challenges of their hopes and longings will test who they really are in the most heartbreaking of ways. And only by coming to terms with their losses and the necessity of change will Ginger and Samuel be able to each make a future of their own—and discover at last where their true home lies....

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

Praise for Casting Off

“A beautiful novel of letting go, healing, and redemption. Setting her story in the west of Ireland, Nicole Dickson draws the reader deeply into the magic of a mystical land. A stunning debut.”—New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs
 
“A remarkable novel about finding your true home, and of holding on and letting go. With lilting and lyrical language, Dickson immerses the reader in the lives and histories of a cluster of tightly knit families on an island off the coast of Ireland. I could hear the soft Irish voices and taste the salty spray of the ocean as Dickson worked her storytelling magic, creating characters as complex and beautiful as the Irish sweaters at the heart of the story. This was a hard-to-put-down book, and I’m already anticipating the next offering from this wonderful author.”—New York Times bestselling author Karen White
 
“With a pattern as intricate as the sweaters knit in the novel, Nicole Dickson weaves her words into a powerful story of redeeming love and forgiveness. Casting Off grabbed my heart on page one and didn’t let go until the last breathtaking sentence.”— New York Times bestselling author Patti Callahan Henry

    Great read

    This was so unique. So entertaining, more than any other recent book i have read. Definately worth it. Hated that the story came to an end. It brought tears to my eyes in several places. Beautiful story. Enjoy.

    I was anxiously waiting for a second novel after reading Casting

    I was anxiously waiting for a second novel after reading Casting Of,f and was not disappointed. The history was very interesting and woven well into the telling of the story which made the lives of the soldiers and their families very real, something I had not found in many other books about the Civil War. This is not only a good read, it is a history and an opportunity to look into ourselves and learn. A definite 'read again' novel.

    Beautiful novel of loss, love, and redemption

    Nichole R. Dickson’s HERE AND AGAIN, is a beautiful novel of loss, love, redemption, and finding your way home.

    Dickson dives into the lives and histories of families, and back to the Civil War, with well-developed characters, drawing readers into a magical world as the novel shifts back and forth between Ginger and Samuel’s POV.

    Ginger lost her husband in Iraq and she is raising three children. She is living on a farm where her husband grew up, owned by her husband’s grandmother.

    Set deep in the Shenandoah Valley, Ginger dreams of the past. When a stranger appears in her life, he says he’s a soldier, and trying to make his way home, but Ginger understands Samuel is a kindred spirit.

    HERE AND AGAIN takes you on a remarkable journey as readers learn about all the pieces of their life, while seamlessly intertwining the past and present, from grief to joy.

    I listened to the audiobook, read by Karen White which was warmhearted and easy flowing.

    Readers enjoying contemporary or historical fiction will appreciate Dickson’s lyrical style. I look forward to reading more by this author!

    Here and Again by Nicole R. Dickson Have read the author's othe

    Here and Again by Nicole R. Dickson
    Have read the author's other works and loved the book and am looking forward to this book. It's a tale about the woods and trails which I strive to get to on the weekends.
    We have traveled to the area of Shenandoah and have enjoyed it but didn't explore much about the battles. This book is about a family, a mother and her three children and they live on the mother in laws farm in Virginia.
    She is a nurse and travels to work some shifts quite a distance from home. She was raised in Seattle, WA and has found a home on the farm. Others have been caring for it as her husband is fighting a war in Afghanistan.
    Decisions must be made when he is killed. Others in the family want the old woman to sell the farm but the farm was to go to the man's children.
    The story is also about a solider back in the Civil War days. He'd write to his true love as she and her family escaped to head further south to avoid the turmoil. Love the violet hour and the saga of the buttons. Quite a unique tale as this author knows how to bring them both together in one story.
    I received this book from Edelweiss by Penguin Group (USA) Inc.in exchange for my honest review.
