New Book Release: The Road Home

Please join me in congratulating Kathleen Shoop on the publication of her newest historical fiction novel, The Road Home, book two in The Letter Series, featuring characters inspired by Kathie's ancestors. I had the privilege of providing some editorial assistance to Kathie as she crafted this emotional tale of a family's struggles in the Midwest at the end of the nineteenth century. Here's the book description:

Find your way home... 

1891—Living separately for three years, fourteen-year-old twins, Katherine and Tommy Arthur, have done their best to make each boarding house feel like home. But unrest grows as they are driven to questionable actions just to survive. Meanwhile their desperate mother is confronted with breaking yet another promise to her children. Then a miracle descends. Hope rises on a cold, rainy night and changes everything. If Jeanie could just get word to Katherine and Tommy, she knows she can set their lives right again. Agitators, angels, and dangerous “saviors” illuminate the Arthurs’ unmatched determination and smarts. 

1905—Though she tries to forget the awful years that hurt so much, the memories still haunt Katherine. Now, tearful mourners at her mother’s funeral force her to revisit a time in her life that both harmed and saved her in the most unexpected ways. Tommy grieves his mother’s passing as well. He too is thrust backward, compelled to rediscover the events in his life that shaped the man he has become. Will he commit to reconstructing his broken life? The Arthurs come to understand that forgiveness is the only way back to hope, the only way to find all that was good in the misfortune that transformed their lives forever.

The Road Home is available now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble! Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out Kathie's website for the scoop on all of her books and blog posts about writing and historical research.
