“The Home That Built Me” was sent to me by Karen Mueller Bryson free of charge in exchange for my honest review of it.
“The Home That Built Me” is book one in the “Coming Home Trilogy”, written by Elaine Barnett. It is a Christian romance about a young girl who ran away from home, got married to a cheating abusive husband, and decided to return home too late…after her parents had already died.
Genna returned home to the news that her parents had been killed in a plane accident. She had inherited an awesome estate, complete with servants, cars…even a stocked refrigerator and pantry. She reconnected with her high school sweetheart, Mark and her best friend, Connie. Genna, Mark, Connie, and Genna’s new friend Maxx end up spending Christmas holidays together. We get to watch a budding romance between Mark and Genna and between Maxx and Connie. Genna finally forgives herself for leaving and her ex for the way he treated her…Then she could give her heart to Mark.
This was a very heartwarming story and I would definitely recommend it.
