Happiness has always slipped through Ephraim Fletcher’s grasp like water. Every time he’s gotten close, events have risen up to shatter what little comfort he finds in the world.

After the trauma preceding his brother’s departure from the homestead, his long-time lover lays close to death in the half-built house that should have been their happy-ever-after. As Ephraim nurse

Wut? No. No!! This cannot be how this series ends. No resolution for Caleb and Jacob?... actually ZERO interaction between Caleb and Jacob? No interaction between Jacob and Thad? (view spoiler) The last book is about as romantic as a kick in the teeth with Ephraim and Joshua. This was no epic love story.

There is way too much left out to wrap up all the years we've put into this family.

I am unfulfilled and disappointed. Very.

To be honest, I'm a little bummed that Ephraim and Joshua's story only lasts for about 35k words. It's not even a full length novel! Ephraim and Joshua's love story could be epic, and all this time, it happened in the background of other couples' stories. So I don't think this one does them justice *pout*

Having said that, of course I loved this one. The story is moving back and forth, from past to present, from the moment Ephraim first met Joshua until the tragedy that happened to Joshua in the

This isn't a review but a thank you to everyone who has supported me through the three years it's taken to finish this series. Home Is Where You Are was my first novel and from the start I had planned the story all the way to the last scene of Ephraim's book. I cried a lot writing this story (then again with every edit), some from relief that it was finally finished but mostly because I knew it was going to break my heart to let the family go.
It means the world to me that so many people have ta

I love how in this series Family is the most important thing...and that no one is perfect, each have issues and faults and troubles. But they love with all their hearts and they fight for their HEAs.

Also, considering how we've said goodbye to lots of side-characters and distant family, and I knew it was coming...I could feel it, but something heavy was weighing on me at the end there.

I WAS NOT PREPARED FOR THAT ENDING.

I'm not crying, you're crying. Shut up. Roof must be leaking or some

3.5 stars rounded up for Ephraim and Joshua's teeny, tiny little story, but 5 stars for the series overall. There wasn't much of a resolution to some of the outstanding series storylines unfortunately...it's almost as if Alex couldn't wait to get this one out of the way and get the series finished. 😕

Having said that, this is a lovely, gentle, atypical shifter series with no violence to speak of, but plenty of delightful characters in a realistic Little House on the Prairie type setting...but wit

I cannot tell you how much I adore this series. I wish there was a way I could make every MMrom fan read it - I promise you they would not be disappointed. Alphas' Homestead has had me captivated from the very first paragraph of the very first book.
I read very little historical but I love the setting of this series. In some ways it's a simpler time and in other ways so very different from now but at the heart of these books is still love, family and finding your home.

I loved this whole series and felt a little jolt as I read the epilogue. This is the end of an era but I’m glad the legacy series will spin off ❤️ while the focus was on Ephraim & Joshua, there was a bit of closure with all characters.. what a beautiful series... beautiful

Loved this so much, this whole series has been wonderful, seeing the family grow and expand, fall in and out of love and face everything together has been marvellous.

Wow. This book was such a letdown. I really don’t understand all the great reviews. If I were to rate this book based solely on the epilogue, I’d give it 5 amazing stars. However, the rest of the book was a disappointment. I feel like the author just gave up on Caleb and Jacob and wanted to finish out the series.

Ephraim’s story had a lot of flashbacks and not a lot of them were nice memories. I don’t necessarily mind flashbacks, but I felt like it got confusing with the way each section was lab

I've been a fan of this series since reading Home Is Where You Are and I'm sad that this is the end. I absolutely loved Ephraim and Joshua's story but I really wish it had been longer. This was a very enjoyable read and a great ending to the Alpha's Homestead series.

Fitting End

If there are characters that you grow an attachment to, it's difficult to give them up. These are such characters for me. It saddens me that I won't be spending anymore time with them, unless I reread the series, but I will carry them with me always. I'm lucky to have that.

Great as always.
This is 6th and the last one book in "Alphas' Homestead" series. This is Ephraim and Joshua's story and even though I expected something different this heartwarming book is a wonderful ending for this series. What I really like about Alex Jane's books is her amazing talent to create absolutely wonderful atmosphere. It might sound kinda weird but all stories felt like a warm blanket during long, cold winter night and I l

I finished this yesterday and I needed a day to talk about it because I was too sad right after I finished it for different reasons. Today I can think about it better and be sad but also very happy because I loved it and mostly, I want to thank Alex for writing it.

Reading this book has been a wonderful rollercoaster. It's just impossible to describe all the feelings I've been through and how much fun I've had with it. I feel like I read it at the perfect moment, right after I finished book #5.

So much crying! Ephriam and Joshua have been through through all the crap together, and even though I knew eventually things would work out somehow (I was an idiot and read The Legacy first before I'd read any of this series -- stupid move on my part, an emphatically not recommended reading order!), I cried off and on during this whole book. These two absolutely kill me, with their quiet devotion to each other, but for so long Joshua is determined to stay in the closet and Ephriam has a soul dee ...more

Always here...yes. It fits.

I’ve been with the Alphas from the beginning, when Caleb found a broken Jacob. I’m not ready to say goodbye. How about see you soon?
This book, the series really, is one of my favorites. It’s not flowery over the top romantic. It’s real life in years that were tough and unfriendly. Their love is deep and abiding. This last book is Ephraim’s and Joshua’s story, and we get flashbacks from the beginning of their friendship and the stark reality of life after Joshua’s accid

😣How long does it take for loving devotion to arrive at the happy ending🌈?

👍👍 😣😵💔😊
A touching story of romantic and family love, compelling, well-written and focusing on physical challenges, emotional turmoil and rock solid commitment. This story of Ephraim and Joshua's relationship over the years, told alternating past with the 1892 present that ended the previous book in the series, really delivers on heartache and despair, with Ephraim the touchstone that keeps hope burning through tough times⛅

Not a great lover of historical romance, I came late to Alex Jane's series "The Alphas' Homestead." This is only the second that I have read, although I fully intend to read the first four. That being said, I had no difficulty in following the story, and thoroughly enjoyed it. If the series has to end, this is the right way to do it with I assume all the ends tied together. I must admit that I shed plenty of tears over the last few pages of this beautifully written book.

I look forward to readin

This is one of my favourite stories. The entire story was exciting from book 1 to 6, I really loved and care about the characters. I would loved to know what happened with the previous story. (view spoiler)

I was given this book free in exchange for an honest review.

This book in my opinion was the best in the series.

It gives us a look into the past, but it is really about the emotional pain of the people around a family members horrific injury. How do you push a person who’s in pain to recover?

This had me in tears several times.

The “Whatever happened to’s” At the day of this book was an extra bonus for readers of this series and very much appreciated.

This book is very emotional and the perfect ending to The Alpha Homestead series. The beginning was sad because Ephraim and Joshua couldn't seem to find the strength to overcome Joshua's conditions. But their love is strong and I'm happy they get their happy ending.
I love the way the author interlaced moments from different times in their story,ending the book with hope for the future.

Wonderful Series

I got lost in this wonderful world the author created of shifters (wolves) in the old west just after the civil war. The relationships are complex and warm as we follow this family as it develops from Caleb and blends new individuals over a lifetime. Great editing. Buy & enjoy!

My heart was hurting through most of this book. Ephraim and Joshua have gone through so much. I was amazed that I could feel the love in these two characters right from when they met. Their journey is full of drama and pain but also hope and devotion. I fell in love with little Emmanuel and I can’t wait for his tale. This is my favorite book of the series. The author really got me with this one.

First, to fully understand all the happenings and characters on this book it's best although not indispensable to read the other books in this series.

This is the story of Ephraim and Joshua, and it's a sweet, gentle story, although that doesn't mean that there isn't some angst in their journey. And I wish it had been a little longer, but, that's me :P

A great ending for the series.

After spending years creating stories in her head, Alex started writing them down and then found she couldn’t stop.
Despite the late start, she now writes m/m romance about found families, sometimes with a historical feel—and the occasional werewolf.
Free from aspirations of literary greatness, Alex simply hopes to spin a good yarn of love and life, wrapped up with a happy ending. And if her charac
