Book Description

Aug. 1 2011
Kyle is a purposeful young woman who, in Another Homecoming, delights in a reunion with her birth parents and a new relationship with her brother. Now with husband Kenneth beside her to share her joy and oversee the family's legacy, Kyle's life seems perfect. And then a medical diagnosis pulls the thread that leaves the tapestry of her world unraveling around her. Utterly isolated from the emotional and spiritual anchors in her life, Kyle discovers that her "homecoming" was only the beginning of the story.

Product Description

From Library Journal

Now that Kyle Adams's dream of finding her biological parents has come true (in Another Homecoming, LJ 6/1/97) and she is pregnant, Kyle begins to believe that her life is perfect. However, when a heart condition threatens her young son's life, Kyle's newfound happiness fades. Then her son dies, and she turns her back on God. It takes a great deal of soul-searching before she is finally able to accept God back into her life. The authors deliver a quietly introspective novel about the true meaning of faith. Of special merit is the deep characterization of Kyle, a woman whose struggles with religious questions are achingly real. Highly recommended.

From Booklist

The sequel to last summer's Another Homecoming is a straightforward lesson in faith, rather than another convoluted tale, more typical of Bunn than Oke, about confused blood-lines and the presumed dead coming to life. It's almost as though Bunn wrote the first novel, and Oke this one, though both productions are blander by far than either writer's individual work. Kyle Adams returns: she's now married to a solid man of faith and is gloriously happy in her gingerbread row house in Georgetown. Kyle's wicked stepmother is back, less wicked now than grumpy; her real parents are back, humble and cornball as ever; and her noble brother, minister to the homeless, is back, too, about to be married despite a congenital heart condition. Speaking of hearts, Kyle has her baby right after her brother's wedding, and her son has a weak heart and may not live. This puts a strain on Kyle and Kenneth's young marriage: they question their faith as individuals and as a couple and wonder why God can sometimes seem remote. Wouldn't it be extraordinary if Kyle's baby were to die, and if, after turmoil and painful introspection, she reached real insights about faith? That might happen if C. S. Lewis were marooned in such a plot, but not with this team: the baby's fine, the marriage is fine, God is fine. Kyle's observation that "the day was just too wonderful, the miracles too abundant" pretty much sums things up. John Mort

3.0 out of 5 stars Time gap April 11 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I was confused by Tomorrow's Dream after finishing Another Homecoming just the day before. Tomorrow's Dream begins much later after Another Homecoming ends. Kyle and Kenneth are married, Kyle is pregnant, and something has happened among Kyle, Kenneth, and Kyle's adoptive mother Abigail. They are not completely reconciled, but they are speaking much more than at the end of the first book. Oh, and Joel, Kyle's biological brother, has proposed to Ruthie and the wedding is here. I feel the two books are disjointed. So much time passes between the books that it seems as if a book is missing. I honestly checked to see if Tomorrow's Dream was book three, not book two.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect sequel! July 15 1998

Quite by accident I stumbled upon the sequel to Oke's "Another Homecoming." I could not put it down. A truly touching book that many can relate to...love, patience, death, depression, misunderstandings, broken relationships, restored relationships, and much more. Oke's writes with such emotion that the reader is completely absorbed. Keep your hanky handy and enjoy.

I did not like the plot. I thought it was written well but had no substance to it. I kept waiting for her to forgive and when she did the book was ending.

More wonderful reading from two of our generation's best story tellers. follows on from 'Another Homecoming'. Set in more recent times than most stories by these authors it is another book that is hard to put down.
