The Road Home does a fantastic job of covering the greatest mistakes we as humans can ever make, and addressing each one delicately and concisely, and reaffirming the truth that no sin is greater than God's forgiveness. It is the life story of Desiree, from her years in college to her deathbed, and the struggles she faces with pregnancies, relationships, marriage, and forgiving those that have not only hurt her, but her children. With the ever-constant presence of her closest friend, Aimee, Desi...more

Desiree is one tough cookie. She subscribes to the theory that Girls Just Want to Have Fun. And fun she has until her indiscretions land her directly into the role of Single Mom. Best friend, Aimee, is always coming to her rescue and continues to do so as long as needed.

Aimee is a constant positive influence in Desiree's life, gently demonstrating God's love and mercy. Desiree's absent father and emotionally/geographically distant mother have left her cold and disinterested in what God has to of...more
This is a remarkable story of family, love, betrayal, wantonness, homosexuality, incest, spousal abuse-- and the love of God that covers it all. First and foremost, it must be clear that this is Christian fiction, unabashedly so. It tells of God’s prevenient grace-loving and calling to us before we even acknowledge His existence. It shows the ways God works in our lives by providing people along the way to guide and love us into relationship with Him. It also shows that there is no unredeemable...more

Recommends it for: Everyone. It is such a powerful story
This is such a powerful story of forgiveness, redemption and how God loves us no matter what. A lot of us try to find that one true love and want someone to love us and that is what Desiree was looking for, but she found out the hard way that jumping into a relationship with every man you met is not the answer. She had a very hard life but her friends were always there for her and even though she didn't realize God was always there.

There were some parts that were very hard to read because I wen...more
I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest opinion of it. I enjoyed meeting the learning about the characters of the story. But I did not care for style of the writing itself. For me personally, the storyline jumped way to much and there were huge holes in time in the storyline. I enjoy a book better when there are more details and when the story flows better. I did not feel compelled to keep reading this book to see what was going to happen or where the story was going to go....more

I haven't read a book that m a Dr me fall in love with the characters in a long time. There were so many parts that had me fussing at either the characters or author and sometimes both.
If you like a book filled with friendship, love, despair, as and the ultimate recovery from heartbreak and pain(Salvation). Then this is the book for you.
