Home Again by Kristin Hannah

Madelaine Hillyard is a world-famous heart surgeon at the top of her game. Her personal life is far less successful. A loving but overworked single mom, she is constantly at odds with her teenage daughter. At sixteen, Lina is confused, angry, and fast becoming a stranger to her mother—a rebel desperate to find the father who walked away before she was born. Complicating matters for Madelaine are the vastly different DeMarco brothers: While priest Francis DeMarco is always ready to lend a helping hand, his brother, Angel, long ago took on the role of bad boy. Years earlier Angel abandoned Madelaine—and fatherhood—to go in search of fame and fortune. His departure left Madelaine devastated, but now he reappears and seeks help from the very people he betrayed—as a patient in dire need. With Home Again, New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah has written a moving, powerful novel about the fragile threads that bind together our lives and the astonishing possibility of second chances.

I had read and enjoyed a more recent Kristin Hannah novel, so I thought I'd try this older and less expensive ebook. What a wonderful read. When I started reading, I thought I was reading a book with a different synopsis. I loved having the book unfold without any expectations for what was to come. I had an idea of what was going to happen, and I was right--but it happened in the middle of the book not at the end. Tender, poignant, hopeful and at times sad. A movie star, a cardiologist, a priest, a teenage girl, life changing decisions, first love and second chances. I don't want to say much else and give anything away.

When i read books i am often disappointed that the end of the book comes with little detail. Howevee this book finished every loose end and the story felt complete. I really like the character development!

You can tell that this is one of Hannah's early writings. The story line is good. but the pace is very slow - bordering on boring. This book makes you appreciate how far her writing ability has come!

I loved this story involving a cardiologist, a spoiled movie star, a priest, and a teenage girl with a bad attitude. If you read this book, make sure you have some tissues handy ... that's pretty much standard for all of the Kristin Hannah books I've read.

Kristin Hannah is my favorite author and this is my favorite book. What a story and an unbelievable turn of events that seems to offer a solution, though unexpected, to an unsolvable problem. Tears and joy abound in all of Kristin's books, but never more than in this one.

I have read many of this author's books and I always enjoy them; this book was no different. As with most characters in Hannah's books there is a complicated relationship between mother and daughter. Story is told from all the characters points of view. The mother is an interesting character who does not understand how to parent a teenager, the father is not in the picture although the author makes sure to have a positive male role model for the child. The story is sad but predictable. Even though there are not many surprises along the way I still enjoyed this book and would recommend it to my friends.

I love Kristin Hannah's novels. This book was good, it could get a little boring at times. But overall it was a good story. I did enjoy it.

Well Kristin Hannah has done it again. Home Again was magical and wonderful, and like every good book I read, I hated for it to end. As another reviewer suggested, I read the book blindly, without knowing what it was about, which made it even more interesting. I wish other reviewers would realize that you don't need to give the plot away- or give an all out book report! This is yet another new favorite of mine by Kristin Hannah, thank you, thank you, for another truly amazing story that I simply did not want to put down!
