After ten years of being away from her family, Bonita sadly returns home to pay respects
to her late grandmother. It is an emotional moment when she and her ten-year-old son
Teddy arrive. After living in California all these years, farm life holds no interest. But that
was before she came face to face with Max, the handsome man she said goodbye to
so long ago. Age may have crept up on them, but their hearts still speak love. However,
Bonita is carrying a secret, one she never allowed anyone to know. Once it erupts, will
Max and Teddy understand and still hold her in their hearts?
Max has a ranch that requires demanding work. He lost his wife and daughter in a car
accident, and it still bothers him. He would like an heir to leave his ranch to. When he
sees Bonita, that loving feeling strikes, and he wants her back in his life. He proposes a
marriage deal so he can raise Teddy as his son. Sparks fly when she wants to stay in
California with Teddy instead of on the ranch with Max. How can Max make her see that
this life is what is most important for her and her son?
Home Fires Burning really touches the issues of family. I loved the way each character
saw each other’s perspective when it came to life. I enjoyed when Max had to learn
about understanding a ten-year-old after Teddy lived in a huge city, then moved to a
ranch. The book was gripping from beginning to end. I loved how Ms. Grace
incorporated conflict and emotion with the characters.
Ms. Grace has a style of writing that draws the reader deep into the story. She writes
with emotion and tenderness straight from the heart. This book brought complete joy to
me. A tissue-grabber, but you will not be disappointed.
