About the book

Home‘ takes up the story of the wayward son Jack who, after decades away, edgily and uneasily, but finally, returns home. He is the prodigal son and his family believe against all evidence, that if they love him enough, if they welcome him back, he will change and he will stay.

Thought provoking, very atmospheric, well written, good evocation of life in a 1950s home. Sad.

*** 3 stars
