Someday Home by Lauraine Snelling







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?

My Review





Three women, each having their own life-changing event, end up living with each other. This book is about how such a happening could have come about, and the roads that led to it.
The story deals with each of these ladies journey to this very new way of life for all, beginning with the homeowner. When Lynn suddenly lost her husband, she floundered for a while, and finally two years later she has an awakening. Rather I felt that God began opening doors for her, and first she stumbles upon Judith. A woman with her childhood having been stolen, and now ready to begin living, but how? She has never even held a job.
The next person is Angela Bishop, devastated from being jilted by her husband of twenty-five years. Can she become Angela again, and not her husband’s Stepford Wife?
These injured souls are now entering the unknown and you have to wonder if three women can live together without one of them wanting to run the show? Come along for tears, and laughter, and some unforgettable events. Once you start you will not be able to put it down, I wanted to move in with them.
I received this book through the publisher Hatchette and was not required to give a positive review.
