"Whatever the theologians might say about Heaven being a state of union with God, I knew it consisted of an infinite library; and eternity...was simply what enabled one to read uninterruptedly forever."

Homecoming, Family, and Miracles

The Homecoming of Samuel Lake

Title: The Homecoming of Samuel Lake
By: Jenny Wingfield

The Homecoming of Samuel Lake is a remarkable first novel.
I was swept into the Moses family reunion and the fabric of their shared lives in 1950's Arkansas from the very first page. I wanted to know all the characters as they shared their everyday lives and their dreams, their tragedies and their triumphs.
Samuel Lake, a young charismatic preacher, brings his wife, Willadee, and their 3 children home every year for the Moses family reunion. This year tragedy strikes with the untimely death of of Willadee's father and Samuel's lost parish. The family stays on and their lives unfold in expected and unexpected ways.
I highly recommend this engrossing book and hope that it is only the first of many novels by Jenny Wingfield.
