One decision frozen in time. A choice that can never be altered. After fighting her way through a bitter and hurtful past, Mercedes Johnson has painstakingly carved out a life of quiet contentment on a Wyoming farm with her husband, Wayne, and their three boys. But all that changes when the birth father of her oldest child returns to Riverton. Brandon Rhodes has plans for his son, threatening the carefully balanced life Mercedes and Wayne have created. Just how far is he willing to go? As Mercedes uncovers the truths of his intentions and the lies surrounding the past, she is torn between what is and what should have been. Fields of Home is a novel about the deepest kind of ties and true meaning of love.
This novel has more depth than other LDS womens fiction I’ve see so far this year.
I think this is Rachel Nunes’ best book that she’s ever written. It is so emotionally layered and gut-wrenchingly realistic that the story just pulls you in and holds you fast. Everyone can relate to this story, to wondering what your life would be like if you made different choices when you were younger.
Ms. Nunes showcases her skills and has produced a book that is profound and well worth your time.
This was a book I didn’t want to put down but life intruded. It was excellent. And, I was so happy about the way it ended. I have already recommended this book to several of my friends.
