Homecoming - Tanya Bullock

All that mattered to Rosie, all that had ever really mattered, was that she loved Tom and he loved her

Rosie and Tom belong together. 

For too long, war and its devastating aftermath have kept them apart. 
Now that Tom has finally returned home, Rosie hopes that they will be able to put the past behind them. 
But when a mysterious sequence of events unfolds, their love is put to the test once more 
With a shocking secret hanging heavily over their relationship... 
With circumstances conspiring against them at every turn... 
Rosie and Tom find themselves caught up in the biggest battle of their lives. 
Will their demons ultimately consume them? 
Or will love conquer all in the end? 

What did I think?

With a title of 'Homecoming' and the opening chapter referring to Tom returning back from war, my heart attempted to prepare itself for any shocks and surprises that might be in store in this short story.  If I thought I could have ever prepared myself for this book, I was wrong!  My mouth gaped open in surprise at the end of chapter 2 as I realised that my initial thoughts were wrong, in fact so completely wrong that they were blown out of the water!

This is such a hard book to review without giving anything away, but for such a short story it packs a big punch that stays with you long after the final page has been read.  The main characters were immediately given a place in my heart and I warmed to them as if I had known them for years.  I was so disappointed when I came to the end as I wanted to keep reading about Rosie and Tom.

Homecoming is so poignant and beautiful that I intend to read it again in the future and, although the surprises won't be there, I'm sure it will be even more enjoyable.  Homecoming is a heart-warming story about love; how love knows no bounds and never dies.

I received this e-book from the publisher, Blackbird Digital Books, in exchange for an honest review.
