Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Interesting historicalOctober 18, 2012Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4"The Homecoming" is a Christian historical novel set in 1944 to 1945 and mainly occurred in United States and London, England. This book is a sequel to "The Unfinished Gift." You don't need to read the first novella to understand this book, but I suspect I would have felt more connected to the main characters if I had read "The Unfinished Gift" first.
The vivid historical details were woven into the story without slowing the pacing. We get a tour of events happening at the time, from a bomber getting shot down and its crew escaping occupied territory, to fame for a war hero on a war bond tour, to missiles falling on civilian houses in London.
There was a romance as well, but I felt like time jumped by so quickly that we didn't really get to see the romance grow. We know that they spent time around each other and that they seem well-suited for each other, but the novel's focus was more on the historical events going on than on scenes of them falling in love with each other.
There was a Christian element to the story. Katherine knew so little about church that she thought she had to pay to attend (due to the offering plate), but we're told she learns more about how churches work and what Christ is all about. The hero believed in God before his wife died, but afterward he was mad at God and had to deal with the issue of God being good.
There was no sex or explicit bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting historical novel.
