Staged in 1897, Until We Reach Home is a paperback novel of 41 chapters and 311 pages. Published by Bethany House, this deep and engaging story is told through the eyes of strong and tangible characters.
Until We Reach Home is definitely a chick book. As a tomboy reader, I appreciate how Austin deals with harsh issues such as betrayal and abuse. In the end, the reader is left with the promise that God faithfully stands beside his children, a lesson the sisters learn from Psalm 46:1-2, God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way, and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.
I recommend Until We Reach Home to women of all ages who enjoy emotional, dramatic novels. In a new light, the story leads readers along a journey where redemption and love are found in unexpected places. -- Estee Wells, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
