Book Review of A Place to Call Home by Merrillee Whren

A Place to Call Home (Front Porch Promises #1)

About: STARTING OVER After serving six years in prison for the false charge of manslaughter in the death of his wife, Kurt Jansen must overcome a world of bitterness if he wants to start a new life. But his first priority is securing a restoration job to pay a private investigator to find the real killer and a lawyer to get his kids back. Hiring a convicted wife-killer isn’t what kind-hearted Molly Finnerty bargains for as part of the prison ministry she supports. However, she begins to believe Kurt’s claim of innocence and gradually finds a great deal to like about him-perhaps more to like than she should. Can they overcome the past and find forgiveness and love?

My Review:

My Rating: 3 and 1/2 stars.

My Recommendation: 16 up for romance, rumors, accusations, and slight violence. Mentions of drugs, suicide, murder, and fraud.

My Favorite Character/s: Molly was a intriguing character with her want to help ex cons and yet her worry of how people will respond to her employing men that have Judy been released from prison. Then there’s the fact that she has a painful past and layers of pain hidden.

My Verse for Molly is Psalm 130:4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. (King James Version)

My Thoughts: This book has been on my TBR list for a few years now . . . So long I forgot about it, and when I win a e-copy in a giveaway I was surprised and I loved it! (The next ebook I get will hopefully be the next in the series.) Anyway, the theme of this story is kind that has been done many times before but not quite like this; it is a tail of forgiveness. Forgiveness of people that had been trusted and forgiveness of those that turned their back on the main character in a time of need. I highly recommend you get out this book out you are 17/18 or older though I suppose younger can read the book off a trusted guardian/friend pre-reads the book.

Just figured I’d mention that I was not asked to review this book and all the thoughts are my own.
