The Coming Home Place (Monogram) - Mary Spencer Ugh . . . Why did I read this book???? Why couldn't I put it down once I started reading???? What a gut-wrencher! The author could have physically taken a baseball bat & hit me in the gut with it & it would of have the same effect as reading this book. Good writing - just ANGSTING - to the mega load - content. I recommended this book only to the emotional strong - & those who like getting hit in the gut.
