Home Again
(Endless Love Series Book 1)

A Novella set in 1969 on the shores of the Albemarle Sound, April Harrington has fond memories of summers at her family home, Bliss. After her fairytale wedding disintegrates, it becomes her refuge–the one place where she can attempt to pull the unraveling threads of her life back together. Unbeknownst to April, the stately house has been neglected in recent years. The once-sturdy roof is leaking in a few dozen places, and the wharf is rotting. Nothing is the same as she remembers. Nothing except for Hale, a Viet Nam pilot who is haunted by a dreadful secret, and who is also her brother’s best friend, a brother killed in the conflict that is tearing the country apart.

In Hale’s presence, April finds familiarity and solace. They share grief for a lost loved one, and from the comfort of Hale’s arms, passion blooms. Yet, April’s future is unresolved. Her wealthy, arrogant almost-bridegroom wants her back and the ghosts of Viet Nam are whispering to Hale. Can they find new love in an old treasured home, the kind of affection and trust that lasts forever?

“I had the honor of reading Home Again by Kathleen Shoop. I am so glad I set down the book I was already starting by her to do so. This short little love story kept me devouring each page. Don’t let the length of this book fool you into thinking that it lacks anything, it provides a powerful punch when it comes to character development, engaging story line, and overall satisfaction. What I enjoyed the most was the fact that this book could have been a full novel, but Kathleen somehow was able to condense it down to a well-written romance.”
