"In a small town, reputation is everything. In her latest novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr explores the burden placed on a young man returning home to face his mistakes—the first step in claiming the life he was meant to live ...
At the age of nineteen, Seth Sileski had everything. A superb athlete and scholar, handsome and popular, he was the pride of Thunder Point. Destined for greatness, he lost it all in a terrible accident that put an end to his professional football career when it had barely begun. The people in his hometown have never forgotten what might have been.
Seth has come to terms with the turns his life has taken. But now he's been presented with an opportunity to return home and show his father—and the people of Thunder Point—he's become a better, humbler version of his former self.
Winning over his father isn't the only challenge. Seth must also find a way to convince his childhood neighbor and best friend, Iris McKinley, to forgive him for breaking her heart. With his homecoming, will Seth be able to convince the town, his family and especially Iris that he's finally ready to be the man who will make them all proud?"
If you've never read any of Robyn Carr's books before, you are missing out. Carr is one of my favorite go-to authors of romance and family stories. Any time I pick up one of her books, I am assured of a very delightful read with wonderful easy to relate to characters and most likely a HEA ending. Not to say there aren't some bumps along the way, because there are but that is a huge part of the storyline. I love the way Carr resolves the issues in the plot.
If you are a fan of Carr's Virgin River series, you are sure to love the Thunderpoint series. I've read every one so far and really liked them all, but this one, The Homecoming, seemed extra special. I had a hard time putting it down. Sooooo good! 4.5****
