Product Description

All roads lead to home. It's easy to go through life believing that we can satisfy our longing for home with a three-bedroom, two-bath slice of the American dream that we mortgage at 4 percent and pay for over the course of thirty years. But ultimately, in our deepest places, we're really looking to belong and to be known. And what we sometimes miss in our search for the perfect spot to set up camp is that wherever we are on the long and winding road of life, God is at work in the journey, teaching us, shaping us, and refining us - sometimes through the most unlikely people and circumstances.

In Home Is Where My People Are, Sophie Hudson takes readers on a delightfully quirky journey through the South, introducing them to an unforgettable cast of characters, places, and experiences. Along the way, she reflects on how God has used each of the stops along the road to impart timeless spiritual wisdom and truth. Nobody embodies the South like Sophie Hudson, and this nostalgic celebration of home is sure to make even those north of the Mason-Dixon line long to settle in on the front porch with a glass of sweet tea and reflect on all of the people in our lives who - related or not - have come to represent home. Because at the end of the day, it's not the address on the front door or even the name on the mailbox that says home, but the people who live and laugh and love there, wherever there might happen to be.

    This is a memoir by blogger and author Sophie Hudson, describing her childhood and adulthood in the South. She tells how God has used her experiences to teach her lessons. I thought the book was good and somewhat amusing. The author's stories are interesting and some are thought provoking.

    I really enjoyed this book. I have been reading the Boomama blog for a while, and I love Sophie's writing style. This book is a little different than her previous book, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet. Instead of charming stories about her extended family, this book covers her spiritual journey. I found it very sweet and touching and, sometimes, a little sad.

    If you enjoy memoir or biography or just like good slice of life stories, I think you'll enjoy this book. I found Sophie's journey encouraging and entertaining. one minute you're laughing, the next, you're crying. I definitely recommend this book.

    I received this book for free from Tyndale for the purpose of review. (less)

    So, Sophie Hudson of BooMama.net has written her second book Home is Where My People Are. If you havent gone over to her blog, stop now (yes right now, I can wait) and check her out.

    Sophie Hudson has written a transparent, quirky, and original book highlighting her walk in faith. Sophie takes us on a journey from her childhood, through college, and into adulthood. While that seems like a bunch to cover Sophie was able to keep it light and fun, like she was talking to a girlfriend, throughout the book.

    Ok but I do have one quirk with the book though. There were A LOT of parenthesis throughout the book. I know that seems stupid to nit pick that little detail, but sometimes it got distracting. I know that even I as a blogger I make mistakes with my grammar. But like I said the parenthesis just got distracting.

    Overall though this book was ok. I found myself not really able to connect with this book. But I am sure there will be plenty of people out there who would love this book. I think it might be good for a younger crowd who struggling with where they are going in life. Realizing that even though you may not be where you thought you would be God has you exactly where He wants you and will use, not only you, but the people around you to bring you back to Him.

    I received this book from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for my honest review

    Home Is Where My People Are by Sophie Hudson totally surprised me in so many ways. Once again, I picked a book by its cover. Who does that? Well, I do. The cover is gorgeous and I want a giant canvas of it to hang in my kitchen. The surprise came when I discovered the book was in fact a memoir. I really thought this book was some Christian Living, appreciate what you have, make your home where you are kind of book. It is not! Home Is Where My People Are is a delightful story that will make you laugh, cry, and annoy your spouse as you read it aloud to him while he is watching a football game!

    As author Sophie Hudson walks down memory lane, I found myself doing the same. Through her personal stories, I remembered some of my own. Especially, her stories of college friends turned life-long family. I love Sophie Hudsons honest and conversational style of penning words. I have never seen so many parenthesis in all my reading life! Here inner dialogue makes this book personaland hilarious. I could relate to this book on so many levels! While I never wore sweater pants (see chapter 14) I did grow up in the south and these stories so closely mirror my own experiences. Even if you grew up in California, this story will touch your heart. Five stars from this book blogger!!

    I was given a complimentary copy of this book by its publisher, Tyndale House, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated other than the joy received from reading a lovely book.
