Someday Home by Lauraine Snelling

Title:  Someday Home
Author:  Lauraine Snelling

My rating is 5 stars out of 5.
One of the best characteristics about Lauraine Snelling’s books is that each one is an adventure of the heart for the reader!  What the author presents is usually a heart-touching story that resounds within the soul of anyone who opens her books.  Someday Home takes on various issues of women in different circumstances in life.  I loved it, especially because the women were middle-aged women.  The house they came to live in was owned by Lyn who recently lost her husband suddenly.  Now, two years later, she is going through menopause and looking for ways to experience new adventures.
Then there is Judith who is an only child, and whose father frankly was a mean man.  Now Judith must leave her home and begin to find her way in life without being kept at her father’s beck and call.  Last, but not least there is Angela who celebrates her 25th anniversary with her husband who then drops the bomb that he has filed for divorce.  All three are broken, have issues of the heart and desires too.  All three wonder just what God has in store for them when a Bassett hound shows up needing care.  They learn to meld together as sisters and as friends.
I loved the scenery described in the book, which includes a lake.  All three ladies enjoy quiet nights listening to crickets on the deck and just chatting or being quiet.  When rough waters come, the girls learn they either draw near to God and each other or they continue to live alone.  Sometimes I chuckled at certain instances in the story and other times I felt like calling a character a jerk!  All in all though Lauraine’s novel encourages us to walk each day with our hand in God’s and that friendship is to be treasured.
Later this year Lauraine’s 4th book in the Song of Blessing series will be released and I look forward to reading it as I have read the other books in the series.  Books are a great way to enjoy time relaxing and even more fun when shared with a friend.  So visit a store, pick up Someday Home and settle back to enjoy the tale.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
