Home Fires Burning really touches the issues of family. I loved the way each character saw each other’s perspective when it came to life. I enjoyed when Max had to learn about understanding a ten-year-old after Teddy lived in a huge city, then moved to a ranch. The book was gripping from beginning to end. I loved how Ms. Grace incorporated conflict and emotion with the characters.
Ms. Grace has a style of writing that draws the reader deep into the story. She writes with emotion and tenderness straight from the heart. This book brought complete joy to me. A tissue-grabber, but you will not be disappointed.

Coffee Time Romance
Home Fires Burning by Rebecca Grace is a pleasant journey into small town USA. Ms. Grace brings to life the “big city verses country” life “feud” and gives it charm. Max is a good old country boy with a big heart and Bonita is a country girl who is just denying her roots. Both main characters and all the supporting characters make you want to “pull up a rocker and set a spell.” This is a very comfortable tale of romance and remembering where your heart resides once you have owned up to your mistakes.
I found myself completely charmed, even when I felt someone needed to turn the characters over his or her knee for a good spanking to knock the stubbornness out of them. It was easy for me to get caught up in the lives of the characters and imagine myself right there with them. Four Stars
