Book Description

May 23 2013

Our childhood is an intricate part of who we become as adults. Everyone has difficulty, despair and disappointment in their past. How we choose to overcome these challenges determines the course of our lives. Through it all, love has the potential to heal old wounds.

In a time when children were meant to be seen and not heard, young lives were not always honored. Jamie and Martha, a brother and sister who were tragically orphaned at a young age, find themselves shuffled between family and friends. Stripped of their voices and choices, they endure heartbreaking circumstances that no child should ever experience. Even though disappointment seems to be the only constant in their young lives, they struggle courageously to find bits and pieces of happiness in a world that is often cruel and spiteful.

Through it all, something pure and innocent within the children refuses to die. On their journey, they learn one of life’s most important and powerful lessons: the healing power of love makes life – and living – possible.   While love cannot change the past, it is the key to redeeming an unwritten future. For Martha and Jamie, it is love that creates the true refuge that is home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Heals All Wounds Oct. 6 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A well-written book which reminds us that love creates a home and a life worth living. We are blessed with Willy's insight and thoughtfulness which is reflected in each of the characters in the story. This novel really tugs at your heart strings. It makes you realize how resilient we are as people, yet how fragile we are at the same time. I'm looking forward to Willy's next novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Blessed Journey Oct. 5 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Willy Nywening has written a book that is both a testament to innocence and strength of childhood and to the power of living in Faith. The children in the story are our children, and their struggle is our struggle - the struggle of all of us to reconcile the world around us with the Divine. Nywening's story is sure to draw you in, but more importantly, her message will bless your heart.

Format:Kindle Edition
Take a ride as each character navigates their unique spiritual journey. With intriguing insight as to what makes people tick, the author has woven all of their paths into a tapestry of redemption. The Journey Home is rich in description and clever in symbolism. You will feel pain and anger but you will realize what home really means. Those who are or have known war time immigrants from Europe, might know first hand of the cultural references made in this book. Getting into the minds and the hearts of each character so deeply was the best part for me.
