This is the best book I have read in years, and I read lots of books! Characters are wonderful, there is lots of interaction between all characters, & more laughs than I have had while reading any Christian romance. I love lots of dialogue & not much descriptive writing in a book, & "Almost Home" meets those demands. You cannot help but love this book, just as I did. Could not put it down, yet hated to reach the end. Felt like I had really come to know main characters. Will buy more of the author's books.
