Lazy adventure, liberation, and future memories usually fill a teenage summer. But then again, some memories are hard to forget! How well Lily Boudreau remembers the summer of her eighteenth year - she has a keepsake - her son, Riley!
Clay Winters was an element of Chicago wealth. He was a kid from a rich, successful family. Every summer he vacationed in Glens Crossing, Indiana and enjoyed the pleasures of summer. Lily Boudreau was one of those pleasures.
As the years slipped away, Clay Winters continued to dismiss Lily Boudreau from his mind. He dismissed her betrayal, her disloyalty, and her marriage to his best friend.
Susan Crandall takes that betrayal and runs with it and the reader is along for the glorious ride. Crandall's journey is gentle and convincing, displaying the power of dishonesty and its lifelong influence. THE ROAD HOME is storytelling at its best and accented with her Crandall's ability to write strong secondary characters. These traits make for great reading.
My complaint? The hurried feeling surrounding Riley's golden moment in the sun. This entire affair felt brisk and jagged. And I wish the author had not finished her dazzling story with that wide open ending . . . setting up for a sequel . . . great . . . but this should never be done at the expense of closure!

The Road Home was the second Susan Crandall book I read. It was very enjoyable and entertaining. There is something for everyone in this book: money, lies, secrets, love. The storyline of the book was excellent and the characters very life-like. The setting of this book was good too. Ms. Crandall does an excellent job of portraying Indiana the way it is. Being from Indiana myself I appreciate this. She really paid attention to detail. Especially when she has to run an errand she doesn't want the entire town to know about. Living in a small town has it's disadvantages as well as perks.
The Road Home is a book to be read and enjoyed. Ms. Crandall writes about small town life with characters who seem to be real. An excellent novel to recommend!
Clay Winters had returned to the one place that felt like home to him. He never thought Lily would come back after she married his best friend. Now Clay has to supervise her strong-willed son. Lily and Clay keep getting thrown together. They realize their past never really went away.
The Road Home by Susan Crandall has such heart wrenching emotions and joy of life. Her characters just touch a chord and will not let go. You feel like you are a part of their lives.
I am glad I found her books, she is an auto-buy for me.
