The Last Way Home
by Liz Johnson
About the book
When Eli Ross left Prince Edward Island to join the NHL, he left a broken family behind. More than a decade later, he’s broke and headed home to an uncertain welcome. He wants to make things right with the family he wronged, but his mom’s business partner isn’t making it easy. To top it off, the coaching job he’s accepted turns out to be far more difficult than he anticipated.
For years, Violet Donaghy has put everything she had into making Eli’s mom’s ceramics shop a success, and she’s not eager to forgive the man who hurt the family that’s taken her in as one of their own. But when the kiln at the shop starts a fire that nearly destroys the studio, she’ll need all the help she can get to save the business and their summer income.
Can these two strong-willed people come together to mend the broken pieces of the Ross family? Or will the ghosts of the past continue to haunt them?
Return to Prince Edward Island for a romantic story of family, forgiveness, and the power of love.
Storyline: not so unusual…enemies (of a sort) to friends to…more?
Yes, this setting! is only one thing that attracted me to this book. I’ve always longed to go there, and this gave me a tiny taste of what island life might be like.
Eli left the island to play football. And thought he could never return. But he’s lost everything, and decides why not go home.
There, he meets up with Violet. Violet is considered family by all the other members of Eli’s family. Eli and Violet get off to a rocky start. But then, they get to know each other a bit…
Can Eli get over his rejection issues?
This story is sweet, if a bit messy at times.
I love the hope and redemption that is woven throughout its pages.
