    2. I picked this book up a few months ago because it had a dog on the cover. I liked the dog but the rest of the cover didn't grab me, so it sat here untouched until I loaned it to a friend. I finally got around to reading it and I was pleasantly surprised by it. This was a heartwarming story about friends, family, forgiveness, and moving on. I liked the characters and how they all fit together. So 4 stars.

    3. Lauraine snelling is one of those authors who, when you pick up one of her books, you know you're in for a real treat--and Someday Home was no exception! This is a story about three women--each of whom is dealing with her own issues and problems. Lynn is still grieving for the fairly recent death of her husband, angela is dealing with an impending divorce, and Judith is learning to live apart from the security of the only home she's ever known--with an angry, bitter father who has recently passe [...]

    4. I really wanted to love this. The book description sounded just like something I would love. And the book was pleasant but there were two problems that kept it from being a perfect book. These were things that jarred and took me away from the story (something that jars me out of the storyline makes a book just okay for me, not a "I have to read this again" type book). The first problem was that Lynn was written as OLD, and she acted mostly OLD, and I was thinking my mothers age until I realized [...]

    5. Three very different women--different in background, life experiences, and personality--brought together. Someday Home by Lauraine Snelling is their story and so much more.Each time I have the pleasure of reading a Lauraine Snelling book, I grow emotionally and spiritually. And I always discover more about myself in the process. Not only that, but I am blessed to read a great story. I can't ask for more than that.

    6. Lauraine Snelling has done it again with Someday Home. Someday Home is a contemporary Christian novel about three women in the 40’s and early 50’s. Marlynn “Lynn” Lundberg lives in Lake Barnett, Minnesota. She lost her husband one year and nine months ago (not that she is keeping track). Her big, log home on the lake seems empty since her husband died and her three children have left the nest. Lately, Lynn has been experiencing times when she gets really hot, short temper, gets weepy, ni [...]

    7. This was a really lovely book. Lynne owns a beautiful, big house and it seems way too big when she loses her husband. She’s in grief- doesn’t want to sell the house- but doesn’t want to rattle around it on her own.She looks into a housesharing and finds 2 ladies that she thinks will fit into her lovely home and her lifestyle. Each one is at a crossroads in their life. Will they blend well together- or will there be strife?It’s a great tale of friendships, challenges at any time of life. [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this story of three women, each with their own baggage, coming together eventually to become a family. At times it got a bit dragged down with details that were probably not necessary and didn't do anything to improve the story. It was almost like extra fluff added to increase the page count of the book. But overall the story moved at a decent pace. I loved the characters and the storyline

    9. I liked the beginning, but the writing style doesn't work for me after a while. I'm not sure why. Maybe too much dialogue and too much detail? I skimmed the last 100 pages. Interesting idea: shared housing.

    10. This book really drag aged on with very lite excitement.I struggle d to get through this book . It was so long with very little action or interest. This is one of my favorite authors but this book is not her usual caliber.

    11. Lauraine Snelling is such a gifted author! What a current topic "shared housing" that is being considered today in thus busy society. Her books never fail to disappoint me in learning something while enjoying a good story line.

    12. Great Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have always enjoyed this author, it has been a real treat reading her again. Thanks for a great read!

    13. Some Christian fiction have a heavy sermon message. This one has more of a feel of friends sitting down and having a heartfelt discussion. The talks with the pastor remind me of the reflective and constructive discussions I have had with my own pastors over the years. This book has many themes but ultimately speaks of second chances and finding yourself after losing it all. The self discovery these three (in different places in their lives) have is beautiful.Finally, it introduced a new concept [...]

    14. An uplifting "fluff" kind of read, which was great for summer. Much of the book seemed far fetched (such as pretty sure you can't just add a person to a mortgage like it's a lease, or how instantly these strangers got along living together). That being said, I still find it to be a sweet heartwarming story.

    15. Sweet book about friendships. It's a sad book also but really loved the story of friends and families. This is a good book about life transitions that are hard, but can turn out blessings in the end.

    16. Not a complicated read. Three women dealing with unwanted changes in their life learn that when you have others to help, the load can be lighter even though it is still heavy. Nice day just reading from start to finish.

    17. This book was a breath of fresh air for me. The story follows three women who face some huge life transitions and how they're brought together to heal one another. If you're looking for a heartwarming story about the bonds of friendship, then this is the book for you. Highly recommend!

    18. I enjoyed reading this book about 3 women that changed direction in their lives because of different circumstances and discovered who they were and what they wanted for themselves.

    19. Cozy Christian fiction with a focus on female friendship. The storyline focusing on widowhood was particularly moving. The others less so - but that says more about this reader than the writer.

    20. excellent story. three women from different backgrounds --- coming together to live in one house and helping and supporting each other to heal of hurts from their past.

    21. I enjoyed it more than at thought I would. It was hard to get into it at first, eventually I was able to get past the "too detailed" description of every situation/event in the book.

    22. Someday Home by Lauraine Snelling is a lovely novel of new beginnings for three women who have experienced life altering events. This faith-based story is also a beautiful journey of resilience and forgiveness as they heal from the wounds of their past.Lynn Lundberg is a widow whose busy days keep her loneliness at bay, but her empty nights are becoming harder to bear. When she learns about shared housing, she decides to give it a try as long as she can find the right women to move in with her. [...]

    23. None of us every thinks that when we arrive at the later stages of our life, that the man we married might not be with us. Through death or simply a change of plans, we never imagine that we might face our final days alone. Sure family and friends might still be close by, but the thought of sharing a home alone is a bit more than we might want in our life. Who will we share those quiet moments of the night with, when everyone else has gone home? This is the premise facing Lynn Lundberg, a very b [...]
