About the Book:
Welcome to Ballycove, the home of Corrigan Mills. Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Irish countryside the famed mills have created the finest wool in all of Ireland. Run by the seemingly perfect Corrigan family, but every family has its secrets, and how the mills came to be the Corrigan's is one of them. Miranda and her husband were never meant to own the mills, until one fateful day catapults them into a life they never thought they'd lead. Ada has forever lived her life in her sister's shadow. Wanting only to please her mother and take her place as the new leader of the mill, Ada might just have to take a look at what her heart really wants. Callie has a flourishing international career as a top designer and a man who loves her dearly, she appears to have it all. When a secret is revealed and she's unceremoniously turfed out of the design world, Callie might just get what's she's been yearning for. The chance to go home. Simon has always wanted more. More money, more fame, more notoriety. The problem child. Simon has made more enemies than friends over the years, and when one of his latest schemes falls foul he'll have to return to the people who always believe in him. Ballycove isn't just a town in the Irish countryside. It isn't just the base of the famous mills. It's a place to call home.
The Place We Call Home is a family saga, it's about one's place in the family and what it means to belong...or not. The way the characters interacted, the story flowed from past to present and from character to character was done so well. The plot moved at a pace that worked for the story being told. Of course I wanted more answers, but I was understanding of these mother child relationships that included their own personal relationships and how they navigated them. Faith Hogan wrote a book that is beautiful and well told. The message about relationships and attraction really hit home.
Ms. Hogan has a way with words and is gifting us with another book that details the flaws in humans and how we can react to them and process them. Be prepared to feel and learn all at once. Loving and hating the characters in this story will be a journey in itself.
