Home at Last is a short but sweet romance that can easily be read in one sitting – at least for me! It features Olivia Lamington, a woman approaching the age of forty who has had almost no interaction with men and has never even been kissed. Her background is tragic but she has maintained her innocence, her integrity, and most of all her total trust in God. At the death of her employer of twenty years, Olivia has inherited his estate. Unexpectedly, the long presumed dead heir returns to make amends with his father but he is a few weeks too late.
This story is one of those that borders right on the edge of belief but is just so good and sweet that you can’t help but love it. It paints a picture of how we wish things could be – that there really are those whose hearts are as pure as Olivia’s and who still possess the wonder of a child. Although Noah has traveled the world and is somewhat jaded, Olivia touches something in him that makes him hope once more. I loved the way that each of them encouraged the other to face the pain from their past.
Filled with humor, romance, emotional scenes, and secrets that are revealed, Home at Last is the perfect book to help you wind down after a hectic week.
The author provided a free copy of this book for my honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Olivia Lamington’s never had a home or family
When her late employer leaves Bromfeld Manor to her, Olivia feels secure for the first time in her life. Then Bromfeld’s prodigal son returns, challenging her claim to the estate—and everything Olivia understands about family…and love.
The woman his father left his fortune to is as beautiful as she is innocent, which is why Noah Bromfeld offers to let Olivia stay while he settles his father’s affairs. The closer he gets to Olivia, though, the more Noah wonders if this sweet beauty is the key to his future. But will his dark past destroy his only hope for happiness?
