Publisher's Summary

A triangle with a twist, Coming Home is the story of three good people caught up in an impossible situation.

Rob, a charismatic ex-fighter pilot severely disabled with MS, has been steadfastly cared for by his wife, Jan, for many years. Quite by accident one day, Terry, a young writer/postal carrier, enters their lives and turns it upside down.  

Injecting joy and turbulence into their quiet existence, Terry draws Rob and Jan into her lively circle of family and friends until the growing attachment between the two women begins to strain the bonds of love and loyalty, to Rob and each other. Contains mature themes.

Exceptional Journey of Love

As the feelings grow between Terry and Jan the lives become enmeshed in each other. Can they find a way to tranquility and healing? Great performance and story. Recommend.

A different but good story

I usually scroll through AB titles until one grabs my attention and pulls me in. Coming Home sounded like a familiar yet unique telling of a love triangle. I certainly enjoyed this story and pulled for all the MC’s, but was drawn most to Jan. The sacrifices people make for the love of a partner can be overwhelming. What sold me here was the possibility that Jan would ultimately find 2 different but complete happily ever after stories. This story made me smile, laugh, and of course cry but more for the undying love aspect from all the characters than anything else. Thank you for creating a story in which the women were strong, relatable, and respectful. No crazy antics here, no imagined angst and roadblocks that detain the inevitable. This story is about love and good people and caring for others. If it does not leave you with introspection, then stick to the lighter fare. Well done

Loved this book

To think that I was supposed to visit Calgary this summer, but COVID19 made me stay home and listen to this wonderful book with wonderful narration.

painfully slow character development

it's a well-written novel, but the character development is painfully slow. You do learn to love the characters, and there is a relationship formed. but the relationship in the book is very slow to develop.

Good

The mistake I did was I listed to “Broken Faith” first, which was a much better story than this. Anyway, this was not a bad read and listen. But just dragged and their time together was not as long.

Again not for me

A good performance but the story was just too long and drawn out for my taste. I probably only enjoyed the last two hours of it if that

A truly lovely listen

This is a beautifully written, gorgeously narrated story. I am a huge fan of this LCH X AW combination.

Heart wrenching but beautiful

I love slow burning, longing romances. Some of the reviewers here say that this book is slow, I disagree. The characters are excellently developed and complex, making the romance between Jan and Terry very believable and incredibly sad.

Spoilers from here:
The only reason the story gets a 4/5 is because I really felt like the end was rushed. In the end Terry and Jan both agree that they cannot be together, but will remain friends both knowing that they are deeply in love. Rob suddenly dies one night and the pair spend three months as friends before finally sleeping together.

I felt that the characters deserved a little more of a romantic story line after Robs death. Instead it was fast forwarded straight to the love scene between the two and I didn't feel as though it was as organic as the rest of the book. Because of how long it took for the two to even realise they loved each other, I felt like the end deserved just as slow of a burn and development.
