Read Home Online Free - Melanie runs away. From conflict. From pain. From reality.
When novelist Melanie Vander faces a looming deadline, she decides it’s time for an escape to an inspiring, novel-worthy locale. She’s not running away. Really. She just needs time to focus. But as she disappears into her writing, she encounters a man whose tenderness leaves her reeling. Engaging and wise, psychologist Elliot Hammond tempts Melanie to question everything, including her marriage.
But that’s ridiculous. Dr. Hammond isn’t even…real.
Melanie’s husband, Craig, has his own problems, including a recession that’s threatening his business. Waning finances, a looming home foreclosure, and a wife who’s checked out emotionally, has Craig feeling as though he’s carrying his burdens alone. When his client, the beautiful and single Serena Buchanan, offers him a solution to his financial woes, he’s tempted by more than her offer of a business solution.
At a crossroads, Melanie and Craig seem headed in opposite directions.
As Melanie runs away from her problems by escaping into her own fictional world, Craig dives into his struggles, seeking God for strength and healing for his marriage. Ultimately, Melanie must choose whether she’ll check out completely, or allow her characters to lead her home.

I have recently fallen in a hole of christian-fiction and I cannot find my way out of it. Someone send a ladder cause I need to get out of here. and yeah, I reference The Path (that's what that's supposed to be), when I'm not obsessing over Hart of Dixie (we need more character development in boo...

This is my first book by Ginny & it won't be my last. I adored every character. Home tells of a story of our journey to find a place in our own lives to call home. It really hit close to home for me coming out of a season of dryness. Melanie, Jill, Marcos & Craig were all such amazing exa...

Not only do I have a cold, but I have just been reduced to a pile of mushy tears when I finished this book! My poor nose!
So many emotions while reading HOME. There was sadness, fear, trepidation, exasperation, empathy, sympathy, frustration and relief. I feared for Melanie and her husband Craig's...

I didn't know what I'd be in for when I met Melanie, a forty-nine-year-old, midlist author who emotionally checks out of life and her marriage, getting wrapped up in her fictional stories in Home, a novel by author Ginny L. Yttrup.
That is, I suspected I'd be in for something normal-but-fantastica...

This was my first Ginny Yttrup book and I quite enjoyed it. The story was very different from any I've read and her writing style just made everything seem so real and authentic. This was a book that was easy to read yet, at times, difficult to read. It wasn't a light, airy read but one that is r...

Home, written by Ginny L. Yttrup, is the first book I've read by this author.
What a delightful read...full of emotion! Romance, sadness, grief, longing, and lots of stuff between. I found the beginning of the book hard to get into, BUT after I got going...it was a keeper! I'm sure I'll read it a...

Every so often, you will read a book that will touch your heart and change your life. Home was one such book for me.
Like Melanie, I also dive into the fiction world rather than confront the uncomfortable truths around me. Needless to say, I understood her quite well. For me, it was icing on the c...

Wow! I really loved this book. A powerful story that explores many different emotions, some of the struggles mirrored some that I have had in my life and like Craig and Melanie it made my faith stronger.
