From the back cover: A heartwarming story that celebrates how life-changing friendships can be found in all seasons of life.
The sprawling lake home Lynn Lundberg built with her husband has been an epicenter of joyful family life, from summer holidays spent around the water, to cookies baked in the kitchen with grandchildren in the fall. But since her husband’s sudden passing two years ago, Lynn has been lost in the grief and solitude she feels without him at home. She doesn’t want to sell the big family place, but she can’t exist there on her own much longer.
After hearing of a new way of living–where single women share responsibilities as housemates–Lynn thinks she’s found the answer to her prayers. Soon she meets two ladies with whom she could begin this journey. Angela Bishop, a successful real estate agent accustomed to the finer things in life, has just been jilted by her husband of twenty-five-years. Judith Rutherford, who has devoted her adulthood to caring for her ailing father, must leave the only home she’s known now that he has passed.
These three women seek a place to grieve, to laugh, and to be renewed. But coming from such differing circumstances, will the new challenges they face undo their plans? Or will they begin a friendship to see them through the years to come in this Someday Home?
This is a book about shared housing. Sounds absolutely boring, doesn’t it? Well let me assure you it is far from boring. Lynn is a recent widow, Angela is a divorcee and Judith is a single woman because her father has just died. They all need someplace to live and Lynn has this big home so. All three are broken, have issues of the heart and desires too. Under the expert direction of Ms. Snelling they learn to meld together as sisters and as friends. These ladies are so real that you forget you are reading and you feel that you are actually hanging out with old friends. There are no car chases, nothing blows up however “Someday Home” is exciting, interesting and will keep you flipping pages as these characters work to deal with their new joys and sorrows. I enjoyed this book. I am so looking forward to the next book from the pen of the very talented Lauraine Snelling.
