The Homecoming of Samuel Lake by Jenny Wingfield
The Homecoming of Samuel Lake by Jenny Wingfield
5.0 out of 5 stars Just one day, 11 Jan 2014
Sometimes, when you hold a book in your hand, you just KNOW it's going to be a special one. I had this feeling with 'The Help', 'Fried green tomatoes...' and had it with 'Samuel Lake'.
This story is a movie, a song, a picture book. First you fall in love with Swan, then with the whole family and finally with the neighbours, the farm, the town and their way of living. I read the book in one day and I really did not want it to finish. You just get completely immersed in what happens and forget everything around you. You laugh, you cry, you feel, and after you turn the last page, you are simply content.

I was so excited when I received the book. The story promised to be good. I had been very attracted with the concept of coming back to do better or differently each time. What a tedious read. I was so disappointed.
The transitions (or lack of...) from the different lives, periods, stories quickly become very confusing, and at a point I just wanted to give up.
But I am not one to quit easily, specially on books. I just wanted to understand why it had so many good reviews.. But no, I just don't get it.
It's not my type of writing, not my type of book I guess.

I did not know what to expect when I bought this book. Well, I certainly did not expect the roller coaster of emotions I went through while reading it. I laughed so much, and then I cried also... The characters are rare & so special you get to think of them as friends. Precious book.
