A Sweethaven Homecoming revolves
around a group of women who used to spend a lot of time together
scrapbooking who have grown apart, but come back together again, amidst
trials and tribulations. Meghan, who has been a successful
country star, returns to try to get custody of her children, whom she
abandoned two years previously, while trying to avoid her feelings that
she still has for her ex-husband. Jane, a Pastor’s wife,
realizes she hasn’t learned forgiveness when Meghan shows up, as Jane’s
son, Alex, drowned tragically while in Meghan’s care. Lila
returns to get away from her husband, Tom, whom she has found out
fathered a child with her best friend, Suzanne, twenty five years ago. Campbell, his daughter, now wants to be in their lives and get to know them, and Lila doesn’t know if she can trust him again.
Once I got into this book, I really enjoyed it. It took a while to keep the characters straight as I hadn’t read the previous book. And each chapter begins with the character’s name who’s perspective it’s being told from. That, I did enjoy. It’s nice for a change not having to see the whole story from one person’s point of view. I really liked how everything came together at the end and the way the characters were reconciled to each other. It was a very heartwarming story!
