The Last Way Home by Liz Johnson


When Eli Ross left Prince Edward Island to join the NHL, he left a broken family behind. More than a decade later, he's broke and headed home to an uncertain welcome. He wants to make things right with the family he wronged, but his mom's business partner isn't making it easy. To top it off, the coaching job he's accepted turns out to be far more difficult than he anticipated.

For years, Violet Donaghy has put everything she had into making Eli's mom's ceramics shop a success, and she's not eager to forgive the man who hurt the family that's taken her in as one of their own. But when the kiln at the shop starts a fire that nearly destroys the studio, she'll need all the help she can get to save the business and their summer income.

Can these two strong-willed people come together to mend the broken pieces of the Ross family? Or will the ghosts of the past continue to haunt them?

Return to Prince Edward Island for a romantic story of family, forgiveness, and the power of love.

My Review

Can you go home again? Well, we are there as the famous NHL player son comes home! Will he be welcomed?

Set in Canada and in PEI, we are with Eli's Mom and her non-daughter Violet in their shop as they make pottery, and then, disaster comes.

This story has a lot of family dynamics and you are kept guessing almost to the end, how things are going to turn out.

Yes, there is a strong theme of forgiveness, and a lot of it goes to forgiving oneself.

The author gives us a bit of sweet romance, along with family love, although there is one member of this family that is not there for the others, and the cause of much of the troubles and pain that exists!

This read quickly became a page turner, and you will be looking for answers! I am looking forward to the next book in this series!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
