I am reviewing a copy of Almost Home through Revell and Netgalley:
After America enters into the Second World War the town of Blackberry Springs Alabama explodes practically overnight. Workers from all over the country are coming south to find work in Munition Plants, and with them they bring their pasts. And those pasts are coming into Dolly Chandler’s grand but fading Boarding House.
An Estranged Young Couple from the Midwest unemployed professors from Chicago, a widower from Mississippi as well as a Young Veteran struggling to heal from the horrors of the war, they all hope that Dolly’s House will help them find their way back to the lives they left behind them. The house too has a past of its own.
After tragedy strikes, Dolly’s only hope will be the circle of friends under her roof and the ability to find the truth about what happened to the young bride who lived there a hundred years before.
I give Almost Home five out of five stars!
