Slow Reader Friday: The Way Home


The October 2014 MIP Book Club Selection is up! I think the guys will like this choice, not to mention a pile of my local compadres. Go here for details.

Howdy, MIP Book Club Lovers! The MIP September Book Club Selection was a little different than the average fare here. It was an actual Christian romance novel entitled The Way Home by Belle Calhoune. Either the long absence from novels or Ms. Calhoune’s writing made this book a “can’t-put-it-down” experience for me and I finished it before the month began!

The book is set in a seaside small town and Blue Donahue, the protagonist, has returned home from his globetrotting reporter duties to celebrate a monumental anniversary for his adoptive parents. Mr. and Mrs. Donahue didn’t just adopt Blue, but also 6 other boys from varied, and often troubled backgrounds. Thus, when an unforeseen event at the anniversary celebration, it puts the whole family in turmoil and they collectively wind up in the hospital ER.
