Now thirty-one, Cassie is back in Washington, living in Seattle with her daughter and hoping to leave her past behind. After ending a difficult marriage, Cassie is back on her own two feet, the pieces of her life slowly but surely coming together. Despite the strides Cassie's made, she hasn't been able to make peace with her sisters. Karen, the oldest, is a busy wife and mother, balancing her career with raising her two children. And Nichole, the youngest, is a stay-at-home mom whose husband indulges her every whim. Then one day, Cassie receives a letter from Karen, offering what Cassie thinks may be a chance to reconcile. And as Cassie opens herself up to new possibilities-making amends with her sisters, finding love once more-she realizes the power of compassion, and the promise of a fresh start.

This book talks of grief of a lost wife, abuse of a women, and reuniting of a family as well as starting a new life of a mother and daughter. Adultry of in a husband. Like I said,never a dull moment.
I highly recommend this book to everyone. Debbie outdid herself with this one. i sure hope this book becomes a series. Or at least a follow up. to me there are some loose ends that need to be followed through.
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Can You Go Home AgainMarch 13, 2015MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Last One Home deals with the tough subject of spousal abuse, at its worse. A young woman falls in love with the wrong man, defies her family and runs away and gets married. Only she really has married the wrong man, one who takes all contact of her family from her, allows her no friends, and beats her for everything that goes wrong.
Cassie made really bad choices as she graduated high school and is waiting to enter college in the fall. That never happens, and she is at risk of loosing her life, in more ways than one. When the story opens she is now back from Florida and living in Seattle Washington, working and counseling woman who are in the same abusive relationships that she has finally escaped. She is trying to make a loving home for her twelve-year-old daughter Aimee, and just found out that Homes for Humanity are going to help her.
She meets Steven as she first goes to volunteer and he seems to take an instant dislike of her. We later learn that he is still grieving the death of his wife, and of course Cassie, has so many hurts.
One good thing she receives a letter from her sister, and a door opens to maybe healing a family? Can Cassie ever open her heart and forgive everyone, and maybe have her own family again? Is it possible for a person who has been so beaten down, and felt so worthless, and responsible for everything that has ever gone wrong, to really begin anew? Come along and enjoy Cassies rather roller coaster life, and root her on, and find her smiling again.
Another great book from Debbie Macomber. Enjoy!
