Loved it! Very heart-felt story of love and friendship. I love the trials London and Ammon each had to overcome. The emotions portrayed truly made me reflect on my own life. I enjoyed reading this book. I will encourage my daughters to read it as well as my husband and friends. This is a "MUST READ"!

Masterful story-telling in a quick but powerful read

The first chapter had me. Mason weaves a beautiful tale of hope, laughter, pain, family, and faith. While I'm not one to normally read this genre, as it is often too predictable and cheesy, this book stands out. It tells a story that grabbed me early on and was full of enough twists and turns along the way to keep the pages quickly turning. It is light but not weak, fun but powerful. The characters are so real you feel like you might bump into

I found this the other day in my office and picked it up to read. I hadn't really planned on actually reading the whole book, but after the first chapter, I just couldn't stop. I really loved the characters and watching them change as the book went on. I cried, and laughed, and hardly even moved from my chair. I finished it a few hours after I started and I loved it! I would really recommend it to anyone.

This is just an all-around great read! The events really pull the story along quickly, but the heart of the book is the depth of the characters. I really felt their heartache as well as their joy. This author is spectacular at taking the reader inside her characters thoughts and emotions. They are not contrived, but true-to-life and believable. I was so glad to finally find a page-turner, that I was sad to have this book end.

Overall, I enjoyed On The Way Home. I was invested in London, the main character, and really wanted to see what happened to her. The author did a good job of making you feel what it was like to live London's life...exhausting. Sometimes LDS romance can be cheesy, but I thought Wells Mason did a good job of integrating romance with gospel topics without being unrealistic. A quick read and a great escape, especially if you need some perspective in your life.

Mason does a very job developing the characters and the story line. She pulls you in from the beginning and has you wanting to know what is going to happen next. I liked London and her kids immediately and wanted to see them find happiness again. She does a very good job painting a picture of Montana and the beauty of where the book takes place.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story of dedication, compassion and love. The descriptions are vivid, between the cold beautiful Montana landscapes, her hatred of her paper route job and the many challenges faced. I was completely enthralled and stayed up until 2am to finish. It's a captivating love story that pulls in themes of healing and faith. A great summer read!

It is refreshing to read a book that strengthens your faith and gratitude for truths that change lives and hearts. The ending was happy (a must for me) and held some surprises. I loved Elsie's character as well as London's. I would enjoy a sequel about Brad or Marty. (Of course with updates on London!)

Enjoyed this really quick read. Character development was believable. London stayed true to her heart throughout the book. Teared up in some places. Didn't care for how fast the story ended though. There could have been a little bit more development between London and Ammon. It just seemed they fell into things too quickly. But at the same time it seems that happens often in the LDS culture.

This was a very sweet, heartfelt love story, not only between friends and family but between our Heavenly Father and his children. I was touched by the reconversion of Ammon. It reminds us that no matter how lost we may become, it is never too late to find our way home.

Wonderfully written story

I loved this story from beginning to end. The characters were all wonderful. What a sweet story of finding the gospel and love at the same time. Bravo Stephanie, my friend.

I enjoyed the story and admired the main character, but felt the pacing was pretty slow. I think the author sometimes broke the "show don't tell" rule. Also, I found some of the plot hard to swallow, especially the ending. (Grade: C+).

A widowed mom of two tries to hold her family together by working as a paper carrier to keep their heads above water. When she comes to the rescue of an elderly woman, she meets a handsome fireman and begins to see life differently. A good clean read!

Uplifting

Written by an LDS author. The author's first novel after short-stories. Entertaining though predictable. Great read for travel or a long weekend.

Another case of falling in love at first sight for no reason. I also felt like she used the fireman who was in love with her and then the author just dumped him-no closure for him.

Cute LDS book. I really enjoyed the story and characters. Fun read without being a too "Oh So Perfect" romance.
