Product description

About the Author

Mary Campisi should have known she’d become a writer when at age thirteen she began changing the endings to all the books she read. It took several years and a number of jobs, including registered nurse, receptionist in a swanky hair salon, accounts payable clerk, and practice manager in an OB/GYN office, for her to rediscover writing. Enter a mouse-less computer, a floppy disk, and a dream large enough to fill a zip drive. The rest of the story lives on in every book she writes. When she’s not working on her craft or following the lives of five young adult children, Mary’s digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue lab mix, Cooper, or on the prefect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own “hero” husband, on his Electra Glide Classic aka Harley. Mary has been published with Kensington, Carina Press, The Wild Rose Press, and Jocelyn Hollow Romance.

One I got my head around the first few pages of all these persons names and who they were I have to say this is one of the best storyline books I have read in a long while, with a great twist towards the end.

By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Oct. 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
For nine years Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept all her secrets safe. Those nine years were spent in San Diego, two thousand miles from her hometown of Holly Springs, New York. She has created the perfect life - with a wonderful husband, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for the award-winning daytime soap "On Eden Street". When her husband dies suddenly, Audra must return to Holly Springs for the funeral and face the community that has not forgotten her mother's scandals and a man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.

Jack Wheyton is one of the best pediatric neurosurgeons in the country. People fly from all over the world to see him. Nine years ago Jack and Audra had spent a short time together in bed. He has always regretted telling Audra that they were over. He has always regretted taking a ski trip to get his head together. And he has never forgiven Audra from running across country with his brother, Christian, before he returned from the trip to express his love for her. Jack is about to become engaged to Leslie Richot when Audra walks back into his life with her daughter.

Once Audra returns to San Diego from burying Christian, her eight year old daughter, Kara, is diagnosed with Chiari Malformation. (The skull is too small for the brain, so the cerebellum and brain stem are being pushed downward and compressed into the spinal canal.) Ironically, Jack is the top surgeon recommended. For Kara's sake, Audra turns to Jack to save her child. But to save Kara, Audra must find out the medical history of her own father. The only person her mother had confessed the man's name to was Pastor August Richot, Leslie's father. And if Pastor Richot breaks his vow to save Kara's life, it would harm many of the locals' lives.

Pulling Home by Mary Campisi is a contemporary romance which will have the reader immersed from the start. It is a tale of selfless love. A love that makes sacrifices to protect those around. A love that spans the years. A love that never dies.
The novel has its secrets. Secrets that slowly unravel for both the characters and the reader. "Sooner or later the truth comes out." The secrets were meant to protect. The truth may hurt but it needs to come out.
There is the topic of gossip within the story. "Dirt sells, whether it is true or not." Gossip is wrong. Gossip has the power to destroy lives. "Idle chit chat ruins lives." Mary Campisi shows how gossip needs to be stopped in its tracks.
The themes of identity and appearance are present in the novel. We all need to know who we are and where we come from. Sometimes our identity can mean the difference between life and death. Appearances may lie. We show one face to the world but underneath we are someone entirely different.
The novel deals with grief and loss. "Time passes and wounds heal... It doesn't mean a person ever forgets." Grief never leaves. One just has to get used to a new 'normal.'
Forgiveness is another theme. Sometimes it means forgiving others. Sometimes it means forgiving ourselves which is harder to do.
Families are complicated. Families have fall outs but are bound by love. Families are loyal, and love and protect their members.
Pulling Home was a compulsive read. I could not put it down. I became immersed in the action and the lives of the characters. The plotline was intricate and well thought out. The characters were likable and realistic. I really loved Pulling Home.

Format: Paperback
When Audra's husband Christian suddenly dies, she finds herself back in their home town with their eight year old daughter Kara for Christian's funeral. After living away for nine years and with only occasional visits back, Audra is disliked by Christian's family who blame her for Christian moving away and when Audra faces Christian's brother Jack it soon becomes clear that Jack and Audra share more than a history together when family secrets are revealed.

At first reading this book I felt overwhelmed by just how much tragedy happens so fast. I would have put the book down only the author writes in such a way that is filled with mystery and suspense that I had to keep reading on to find out what happens. Sadly what followed was more drama and tragedy like what you would find in an American soap but is just too much in one book. There is an audience for this kind of writing but for me personally it's just not my sort of escapism that I enjoy, although other people may really enjoy this. On a positive the book did hold my attention until the end of the book and I saw potential that would have been a very good story if there were not so many characters easily killed off and tragedy surrounding most of the characters, which is what, spoilt the book for me.
