Bringing Rosie Home #2 By Way of the Lighthouse by Loree Lough Wow, this is an amazing, gripping story that captured me and would not let go! Rena and Grant VanMeter lived out every parent’s worst nightmare the day their precious preschool daughter Rosie was abducted. I cannot imagine the agony they went through wondering where Rosie was and if she is frightened and being cared for. Their emotions of grief, guilt, blame, anger, fears and hopelessness mingled up in their love for each other come across the pages impacting my own emotions. Fast forward five years later, the miraculous happens, they get “the” call, they found Rosie! They. Found. Rosie! Can Rena and Grant put this family back together? Or will unforgiveness and guilt tear them apart even as they bring their precious daughter home? What of Rosie, will she even remember them and feel safe and loved? My heart went out to Rena, Grant, Rosie and Tina, Grant’s mother (who’s character is named for me, what an honor!) and I cried along with them and rejoiced when Rosie was found. But Rosie being found and home is only the beginning as they readjust their lives in so many ways. There is hope for them as they learn to forgive others and oneself, turn to God and allow healing. What makes this story even more heart-wrenching is that it is based on a true story.

4 1/2 STARS! A riveting story from start to finish! I was hooked immediately and couldn't put it down. What a heart-wrenching subject! The characters had many conflicting thoughts and fears as they faced the daunting job of trying to put together a family that had been decimated years ago. Grant was a really hard man to like because he was so self-righteous, but on the other hand, you could understand why he felt the way he did ... but then you only had to look at her and you crumbled because you could totally see yourself having done the exact same thing she did. It's a very powerful story and I really enjoyed reading it. I felt the ending glossed over their true reunion much too quickly, but overall, a really nice read! Grant and Rena Van Meter faced the evil that every parent fears five years ago and it shattered their family into pieces. Having their daughter disappear was like having the sunshine go out of their lives, and it left lasting ramifications. Grant couldn't let go of his anger long enough to stop blaming Rena for taking her eyes off of Rosie for just a matter of seconds ... because those seconds were all it took to have his little girl ripped from his life. Rena blamed herself as well, but the factor that had her giving up on ever healing the rift was Grant's anger and blame. Five years have passed, and while the rest of the world has continued on, the loss still dictates both of their lives ... until the call comes in. They've found Rosie! Both Grant and Rena drop everything to run to her side and figure out a way to bring their family back together for the sake of Rosie's readjustment and healing ... but talk is one thing, and actually living it is another! Will Rena ever be able to redeem herself in Grant's eyes or is this all just a waiting game until their relationship crumbles once and for all?
