Read A Song of Home: A Novel of the Swing Era (Pearl Spence #3) Online Free - Pearl Spence has finally settled into a routine in Bliss, Michigan, far from her home in Red River, Oklahoma. Like all the other kids, she goes to school each day, plays in the woods, and does her chores. But there's one big difference: Mama is still gone, and doesn't seem to have a thought for the family she's left behind.
Escaping from her worries is another part of Pearl's new routine, whether that's running to Aunt Carrie's farm, listening to the radio with Ray, or losing herself in a book. In fact, a chair in the stacks, surrounded by books, might be her favorite place on earth--until she discovers swing dancing. The music transports Pearl to a whole other world.
When Mama unexpectedly returns, it isn't the happy occasion Pearl had imagined. Mama is distant and Pearl can't figure out how to please her. And the horrible way she treats Daddy is more than Pearl can bear. Seems life would be better if Mama would just stay away.
Finkbeiner's portrayal of both tragedy and everyday life in times of great change is charged with a raw beauty that will haunt readers. Fans of the two prior Pearl Spence novels won't be disappointed!

I have a full heart because of story well-told, more than a hint of sadness that this Pearl's last story, and yet a deep contentment at how events unfolded for her. I know that...

Susie Finkbeiner is a master at characterization. Few books I've read take me as deep into another person's experience as this author takes me into Pearl Spence's. As a reader, I gobbled this book up and found it completely and utterly satisfying as a book on its own, and especially as the culmin...

Such a sweet read...but like life. Difficulties to overcome, decisions to be made, broken hearts, and sweet relationships. They are all a part of life, but it’s so much easier to handle if you have a comforting place to call home.
Such vivid characters, realistic settings, and in a way this book h...

A book that concludes this trilogy, but I could keep on reading more about this family. We have come a long way from a kidnapping, dust bowl storm, moving to Wisconsin, and then Mama leaving. Yes, you might want to start at the beginning, and I highly recommend that you do, but this can be read a...

This is my first Pearl Spence novel, and what a captivating surprise it was. With an eleven-year-old narrator who is finding her way during a tumultuous time, A Song of Home hits all the right notes.
