The Way Home

Rated 4.20/5 based on 5 reviews
"The Way Home" is a love story set in a tiny town in Georgia populated by the kind of good folks who go to church on Sundays and bake pies for sick neighbors. Following her mother's death, Bessie Morgan returns to town, after living away for 30 years, to care for her mentally handicapped older brother. She finds a place in the community and resurrects a love she thought was lost forever.

About Meredith Rae Morgan

Meredith Morgan is a pseudonym, my professional and online identity. I write novels for and about strong women and self-publish them as eBooks on Smashwords.

I was raised in the Midwest but have roots in the Deep South. I have lived in Florida for the past fifteen years. I tend to alternate the settings for my stories between all three places. From that experience, I've discovered that I love Southern women, Midwestern men and I'm fascinated (in a weird and scary kind of way) by the people I've encountered in Florida, most of whom are from other places.

Besides writing, my passions are walking the beach, reading and cooking. For a more detailed bio, see my website.

I loved this book. A romantic tale that tugs at the heartstrings and leaves one with a feeling of comfortable warmth. Yes, Bessie does have support all along the way; that is what makes the story to heartwarming. Yes, there are typos and spelling errors, but these are few and far between and can be overlooked. A small irritation for me is that there is no Table of Contents even though the book is divided into chapters. I think Meredith Rae Morgan is a fine story-teller and I look forward to reading more of her work.

I loved this book and expect to feel the same about anything this author writes. While there were a few typos, they did not detrack from the wonderful characters and story. "Old family" southern ladies are well represented as is the romance of the south. I laughed, sighed and cried. Ms Morgan keep up the exceptionally good work.

*This review contains minor spoilers. Reader, you are forewarned.*

This book had a lot of potential, but I think it ultimately fell flat. I was excited by the blurb, and downloaded without even sampling. I began reading and kept waiting to see some real conflict. There simply wasn't any. Of course, the protagonist DOES face issues. Her mother's death and brother's handicap combine to bring her a world of trouble. She returns home to a town that resents her, both for her departure and presumably for who she has become in her absence. However, Bessie never actually has to face any of these issues on her own. There is always someone all too ready to forgive her, or someone to go to bat for her. All of her problems are conveniently solved -- no muss, no fuss. It made for a boring read.

Additionally, there are a number of typographical and grammatical errors in the text. The dialogue flits awkwardly in and out of dialect. The protagonist repeats the story of her departure from her small town at least three different times. Every time, the story loses meaning. Some of the passages in the book are downright bad. I would have been able to forgive all of this, had the story been better. Unfortunately, as it is, this book just didn't work for me.

I really enjoyed this book. You become a part of the book and enjoying all the difficulties the characters have. This book touches so many emotions and does it with such ease you will find yourself laughing and crying with the characters. I truly loved the part about her going back into the classroom and the struggles that all teachers face this day and age. I highly recommend this book.
