Description

Twenty-one years ago, Jewel Sabatino left her childhood behind and never looked back. After a magical taste of fame, she found herself alone with a son to raise and very few options. Now she has left New York for the hills of Colorado, unsure if her family will welcome her back. For Jewel, coming home is falling into a world that smells of Italian restaurants and home-baked pies. It is the laughter of sisters preparing for a summer wedding. It also means facing the unforgiving eyes of a father betrayed by his favorite child—and letting go of a son who is ready to become a man. But most of all, it is the love she unexpectedly discovers in her own wary heart. . . .

Praise For No Place Like Home

No Place Like Home is witty and bright, sparkling with friends and family who love each other. . . . The novel is heartbreaking as only the best love stories can be, yet it fills the reader with hope and promise. I will have these characters with me for a long time.”
–LUANNE RICE

“A lyrical novel of family, loss, and redemption, beautifully written, beautifully told.”
–JENNIFER CRUSIE
