Homeward by Melody Carlson
From bestselling author Melody Carlson comes this award-winning story of three generations of Lancaster women. For twenty years Meg Lancaster has avoided Briar Hedge, the Lancaster family estate. Now she has been drawn back to her grandmother's home to uncover secrets that have been hidden for decades and to try to regain the family she long ago abandoned.
We meet Meg Lancaster as she is driving home to her family estate in hopes of distancing herself from a broken engagement. But since she hasn't been home for 20 years, it's possible she's just running towards more heartache.
Will she be able to please the grandmother who has always disapproved? Will she be able to forgive the mother who was never really a mom? There are even doubts of how her sister, the only one she has kept in slight contact with, will react to seeing her.
And then there is the cousin who is trying to sell off her grandfather's cranberry bogs. Can she save the bogs or any of the relationships?
A wonderful, touching story of regrets, hopes and dreams - and finding out that what you really want might not be what you have been chasing most of your life.
