FINDING HOME by CaSondra Poulsen

This is the follow up story to "Calling Me Home" (which I loved).  Once again this author does an amazing job of writing a story that is full of emotion, drama and love.  I must say that I was taken by surprise at what happened in this story and wasn't sure I liked what was going on, but in time I came to understand and see that what happened God was able to work out for the good of two people who needed each other.  The beginning of the book starts with a very appropriate quote from Helen Keller, "When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us."  This was a very good quote for the plot of this story.

Brian Richards (who you know well from book one) is trying to find his roots by heading to southern Missouri on his motorcycle.  After stopping at a diner, he finds someone has messed with his bike and it no longer runs.  The mechanic who helps him tear it apart and repair it is "Mac" a young lady who runs a repair shop.  Both of these individuals have deep sorrows in their life and they both will help each other in getting past the hurts and finding their way back to God.  It was a touching story and I loved the family members in both of these characters lives, plus the people in the small town set in southern Missouri. You will laugh and you will cry, but you will be glad you took the time to read "Finding Home". I can't say enough good things about this author and the way she has weaved a wonderful tale in these two books.  I highly recommend them both!
