Overview

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An inspiring standalone novel about the enduring bond between sisters, the power of forgiveness, and a second chance at love.

Growing up, Cassie Carter and her sisters, Karen and Nichole, were incredibly close—until one fateful event drove them apart. After high school, Cassie ran away from home to marry the wrong man, throwing away a college scholarship and breaking her parents’ hearts. To make matters worse, Cassie had always been their father’s favorite—a sentiment that weighed heavily on her sisters and made Cassie’s actions even harder to bear.

Now thirty-one, Cassie is back in Washington, living in Seattle with her daughter and hoping to leave her past behind. After ending a difficult marriage, Cassie is back on her own two feet, the pieces of her life slowly but surely coming together. Despite the strides Cassie’s made, she hasn’t been able to make peace with her sisters. Karen, the oldest, is a busy wife and mother, balancing her career with raising her two children. And Nichole, the youngest, is a stay-at-home mom whose husband indulges her every whim. Then one day, Cassie receives a letter from Karen, offering what Cassie thinks may be a chance to reconcile. And as Cassie opens herself up to new possibilities—making amends with her sisters, finding love once more—she realizes the power of compassion, and the promise of a fresh start.

A wonderful novel of perseverance and trust, and an exciting journey through life’s challenges and joys, Last One Home is Debbie Macomber at the height of her talents.

Last One Home deals with the tough subject of spousal abuse, at its worse. A young woman falls in love with the wrong man, defies her family and runs away and gets married. Only she really has married the wrong man, one who takes all contact of her family from her, allows her no friends, and beats her for everything that goes wrong. Cassie made really bad choices as she graduated high school and is waiting to enter college in the fall. That never happens, and she is at risk of loosing her life, in more ways than one. When the story opens she is now back from Florida and living in Seattle Washington, working and counseling woman who are in the same abusive relationships that she has finally escaped. She is trying to make a loving home for her twelve-year-old daughter Aimee, and just found out that Homes for Humanity are going to help her. She meets Steven as she first goes to volunteer and he seems to take an instant dislike of her. We later learn that he is still grieving the death of his wife, and of course Cassie, has so many hurts. One good thing she receives a letter from her sister, and a door opens to maybe healing a family? Can Cassie ever open her heart and forgive everyone, and maybe have her own family again? Is it possible for a person who has been so beaten down, and felt so worthless, and responsible for everything that has ever gone wrong, to really begin anew? Come along and enjoy Cassie’s rather roller coaster life, and root her on, and find her smiling again. Another great book from Debbie Macomber. Enjoy! I received this book through Edelweiss and the Publisher Ballantine Books, and was not required to give a positive review.

This book is not up to Debbie Macomber standards. While the subject of abuse is important, the storyline was ordinary, predictable and made the reader restless for the book to end.

Author spends too much time describing otdinary events--3 paragraphs on which topping to oorder for pizza! Poor, predictable plot.. Too boring to finish reading. Luckily, I borrowed the ebook from Library To Go and didn't waste money on buying it.
