At the center of Home Again is Madelaine—a brilliant cardiologist, a loving mother, a tender friend, and a woman full of self-doubt. It is also the story of her confused and angry daughter, Lina, and of the two very different men Madelaine loves: Francis, a priest searching for his faith, and Angel, a talented but cynical man with a broken heart. When tragedy suddenly brings them all together, they must learn to forgive the betrayals of the past and find the courage to love again.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susana Guerra | 2/15/2014

    " I can honestly never get tired of saying how much I love Kristin Hannah! This book gives you an enormous amount of hope, faith, and love. Francis is such an incredible character. The way he takes care of Maddy and Lina, and loves them so deeply in such a pure and Godly way. Angel, Frances brother is the opposite but has a heart of Gold. The story develops as Angel needs a heart transplant and goes back to his hometown, where he ran away when Maddy became pregnant at 16. He leaves the Only two people he loves and underatands him. When he is transfer to the best cardiologist he discovers that the best doctor out there and the person who will treat him is his Maddy. And the story unfolds when Frances dies and Angel gets his brother's heart. He learns that Maddy never aborted the baby, and that he is the father of Maddy's sixteen year old daughter Lina. The way all these characters come together through grief, forgiveness and hope is incredible... I enjoyed this book an recommend it to anyone who loves reading about family and the power and miracles God can do in peoples lives... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan Mcleod | 1/5/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adelaide | 1/3/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Paschall | 12/23/2013

    " A brilliant read, illustrating the power of forgiveness by the influence of love. Having second chances through different heart-touching ways, even when undeserved. All leading to one thing--love. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teresa | 12/22/2013

    " I really love Kristin Hannah's books but this one was just not one of my favs. It was slow and i just didnt connect with it like the other books i have read of hers. It was just OK. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 12/14/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 11/28/2013

    " I loved this story involving a cardiologist, a spoiled movie star, a priest, and a teenage girl with a bad attitude. If you read this book, make sure you have some tissues handy ... that's pretty much standard for all of the Kristin Hannah books I've read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandy | 11/26/2013

    " This book was just ok. I really like her books but I'm not sure why this one didn't sit well. I felt unsatisfied at the end and I think Angel just changed too quickly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randi Melnyk | 11/5/2013

    " I thought it was very good- Alot of emotions through out the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 8/30/2013

    " I love her writing style but this one was about as predictable as they can get. It started off similar to one that I had read before, but since I was away, I kept reading as it was the only book I brought. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin Smeby | 5/17/2013

    " I usually really enjoy her books. This one I found the characters to be unrealistic - didn't respond to it like I have her others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Harris | 11/18/2012

    " The characters in this story are all suffering, but a very riveting story of how they deal with it and grow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aubrey Sherman marshall | 10/26/2012

    " Entirely too Cinderella-ish for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 8/21/2012

    " I like a book that you don't want to put down and this was one of those kind of books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bev | 8/12/2012

    " Maybe not the best Kristin Hannah I've read, but still a big fan of her books. Love that they are all based in the Pacific Northwest. Predictable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie Bochner | 5/21/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Anders | 4/14/2012

    " This was definitely not a deep book, but still a well-written easy read...perfect for Spring Break and a few days on the beach. Kristin Hannah did her homework on the topic of organ transplants and donors. I would recommend this book for a light, quick and enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 10/8/2011

    " OMG!! I fell in love with this one. My father had a liver transplant, so I can relate to the main character, Angel. This is one I still think about even though I finished it long ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 8/5/2011

    " Oh my goodness. I don't think I've enjoyed a book more in the past year or so as much as I did this book! I started to need the Kleenex close to half way into the book and went through about 3 boxes! It's a great book that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy in the inside! GREAT BOOK! =) "
