Someday Home by Lauraine Snelling

Saturday, July 18, 2015

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? 

Goodreads Summary

Completely changing the way that you live your life can be a difficult thing, especially when you are forced into it by something like a death in the family. Lynn is lost after the death of her husband and doesn't know what to do so she turns to trying to live life in a different way to cope. Hopefully Lynn can turn her life around and use her new situation to find some clarity in life.

You hear about house sharing sometimes these days with how many divorces there are in the world these days. Money can be tight and this is a solution for some that get into binds when they don't want to give up the nice home that they are so used to. The author spins a heartwarming story that brings three women of different lives together. All of them have very strong personalities, and are pretty set in their ways, so one could only imagine the trouble that could be in store for them coming together into one home. The characters are very well developed with very human flaws, which leads to this book feeling very real and extremely relate-able to people of all walks of life. All women can find something in this book that will warm their heart and keep them reading attentively from beginning to end.
