    Reviewed by Kristie I. for Readers Favorite

    "Home" by Karen Wiesner is the story of a mother trying to come to terms with what home actually is for herself and her son. Della has tried to be supportive of her husband, Declan, but enough is enough. She is tired of broken promises and living in an unsafe neighborhood and run down apartment. On the day when Della plans to return to her hometown to her in-laws with her son River, Declan dies and life changes from that moment on. Although Declan is gone, Della finds herself having to deal with his business partner and lover, Hannah, and deal with the debts that are left behind as well. Della finds help and guidance from the family whom Declan has kept away from all these years and also God as she deals with trials and gains a fresh start on life all the while finding home.

    This is a heart-wrenching and emotional, inspirational novel. The characters and their experiences are all so realistic that they became alive to me. Della is a character whom many will empathize with and will cheer on as she makes changes in her life. Cade is another character whom I liked and she compliments Della's character so well. While reading, Hannah is a character whom I wanted to dislike, but she is one I felt bad for as well. This novel will make you think of what is important in life and the consequences of each choice that is made, as well as reminding us of the importance of home and family.
