REVIEW - Home for Christmas (Willow Park #5) by Noelle Adams
Release Date: 23 November 2015
After being married for just six months, Sophie's journalist husband, Mark, was captured by a Syrian rebel group and held for more than two years. Now that he has finally returned home, he's like a different person. She hardly knows him anymore, and he keeps pulling away from her.
She tries to be patient and support Mark in any way he needs, but it just gets harder and harder. With another Christmas in Willow Park fast approaching, Sophie and her husband need to get to know each other once more so they can both heal. And so they can fall in love again.
My Opinion 5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
This book is the last in the series and can be read as a stand alone story, however I did like having background information on the characters around Sophie and Mark.
I don't know if i'm just softer since i had my twins, but this was was a weepy read for me. Such a touching and emotional read as these two characters struggled in the aftermath of Mark's coming home.
Sophie and Mark struggle to adjust as they are both different people to who they were before Mark was captured. Where Marks was previously open, he is now appears closed. Where Sophie seemed weak, she now appears strong.
But both are battling their emotions and struggling to be the real them as they try to be what they think the other needs.
The story had my crying a few times as we read Sophies struggles throughout the 2-3 months since he has been back, but things finally come to a head there both realise a simple truth.
A BRILLIANT ending to the series!!
