HOME AGAIN Stories of Restored Relationships by Wanda B. Campbell & Friends is filled with stories about damaged relationships. Throughout the stories there is God's Almighty Hand molding the mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and friends in to His beautiful workmanship. If you are in a place where your relationship seems like no other on God's green earth because of the strain and rocky terrain, meet the people written about by Wanda Campbell, Tyora M. Moody, Bernard Boulton, Dijorn Moss, Trinea Moss, Maurice M. Gay, Jr. Shenette Jones, Tavares S. Carney and Linda F. Breed. These authors put their whole hearts on the tips of their pens and wrote about Everlasting Love. His ability to part the seas and make the waters calm is a promise seen in different ways in each story.In my future storms I will remember the marriage that didn't work, the twin brothers who were far from identical in their thinking and the parents with a daughter who had strayed. It's impossible to read any one of these stories without crying, without praying softly and without thanking the LORD for never giving up on us no matter how muddy our road.It is always necessary for me to think again about faith, rebuild it or add two more bricks here and there and a brush of paint with the help of the LORD. HOME AGAIN by WANDA B. CAMPBELL & Friends made me hum old hymns: What A Friend We Have in Jesus, Crown Him With Many Crowns and Sweet Hour of Prayer and last but not least, Somebody Bigger Than You And I. I am so glad to have begun this book at the beginning of the year and not the end of it. I will remember the characters throughout the year and years to come. Then, I will pick myself up and start all over again because God never leaves me.By the way I certainly enjoyed turning back and forth to read the brief biographies of each author. Truly, the book is put together with love.W.B. Campbell Publications

A good book for book club discussions, Home Again is thoughtful, heartfelt and real world... The authors selected for inclusion in this anthology by Wanda Campbell write from some very deep places, stories of hope and redemption. The faces of their characters could be faces in our lives. Indeed, their stories are our stories. Prepare to be absorbed.

I have one word to describe this book: Poignant! Publisher and author, Wanda B. Campbell has assembled an interesting coterie of stories that are at the center of timing and a place to come back to for redeeming value demonstrating the power of love restoring broken relationships and accountability as part of the process. Coming home always has special meaning when amends are made and the better part of valor are allowed to be in place to save face. How do you define that particular 'place'? Is it home, perhaps? Home is an institution where we are loved and cared for...a place of genuine affection and security. Ironically, it can also be the source of our greatest heartaches and biggest disappointments. With God's love and guidance we are always susceptible to be circumstantial in relationships and predicaments learning to love again."  Now comes this volume of short stories and creative endeavors featured in this book to offer eloquent forays of erring misfortune and the chance to get it write! The authors in this set have something to say and refused to let the ink dry before writing it down. At their best, and behind such compelling fare help illustrate in convincing fashion just how truly diverse, urgent and haunting the stories are. "All we want to do is to be able to come home to make our wrongs write!"  -- so says the authors with their shared stories all in one volume.     I shared moments with Ms Campbell as she gave me the impetus behind this project. I got the sense that with the myriad of success we're apt to garner in life, there's equal amounts of angst and disappointment that colors our landscapes. These colorful stories bridges gaps between redemption and salvation tinting the forefront and backdrops from her 'friends'. I blatantly asked what was the premise behind this literary effort when there's so much instability and uncertainty due to an economy out of control? Undaunted and unfazed, she answered, "every author has a story and these stories are just components to getting where one needs to be to come home for restoration...for this project, relationship is not limited to male/female romance, and 'home' is not limited to a physical building. Besides romance, we're looking for stories in which the parent/child relationship is mended, sibling rivalries are dissolved, and friendships are restored." The opening statement has a lot to do with the 9 writers chosen to give accounts of restored relationships ready for the healing process. I believe in the publisher, the authors and their stories therein. When asked to write the Foreword, I never hesitated because I know what it means to come back to repair a relationship. If there were methods to the madness willing to expose broken relationships and how they affect those that believe that home is where the heart is, I wanted to be the one to tell why these writers were willing to bear their souls, and why you should read their stories. Yes, you SHOULD read these stories! There are stories that tug at your heartstrings, where passion and sensitivity are the genesis for wanting to be accountable, and stories with the audacity to render you spellbound under the shroud of intrigue.    Who are some of these talented writers who dug deep into the inner spectrums to give us something to think about? Each author brings diverse writing acumen as I introduce them to you and let you read the rest. Tyora Moody's 'Birthing Pains' is a story wit
