Summary

Faith Neilson, survivor of an abusive marriage, has finally discovered her life's passion. She's established a shelter for women in crisis - not only for homeless women, but also for those who are suffering from abuse, dealing with addiction, or coping with grief over the loss of a loved one. Faith's mission, when she opens her doors, is to help the residents mend their broken hearts. In the midst of that challenge, she struggles to find additional funding to keep her program afloat while balancing the demands of career and home.

This stand-alone spin-off of the best-selling Sweeney Sisters series presents a cast of memorable characters: Tilda, who is convinced she has Alzheimer's; Molly, a street-smart homeless woman who has an endearing childlike quality; Caroline, whose gardening hobby has become an obsession since the death of her son; and Jenny, a young woman whose anger at her husband for having an affair with her best friend has spiraled out of control.

Join these women in their day-to-day lives as they endeavor to move from uncertainty toward independence. When the actions of a young resident's abusive stepfather threaten the residents' lives, as well as the future of the shelter, tension mounts and bonds of friendship are tested in a dramatic conclusion.

Excellent Book!

I have been looking for a book with no violence or missing people and just generally relaxing to listen to. Well this was it😀. I couldn’t tear myself away from this one and thoroughly enjoyed all of the characters and the storyline. Thank you Ashley Farley!

Not for me

DNF @ 42%

idk if I'm in a book slump, or if I'm just weird, but I don't wanna read a novel where everyone has money, and everything always works out, and everyone swoops in to save everybody else. it's just a little too "perfect", you know what I'm sayin?? it's fkn corny

Best book in series and in authenticity

Ashley Farley knocked out our of the park with this installment of her Sweeney series. Each one has impractical she's developed hers characters and their world but this was raw and real dealing with the many aspects of why women need to heal. How women strike out and also bond together.
As a woman who's been dealing with abuse again in my life and trying to leave it, I put off this book because I feared the pain and tears it would bring. Instead of that, I was nodding my head and talking out loud to the book in agreement. What a relief and blessing. My heart is fuller for having read/listened to it.
Narration was excellent. Highly recommend this book.

Great but short

I loved the story and couldnt put it down but it shouldn't have ended like that. The story had plenty of room to continue but sadly it didnt

Sweet & Simplistic to a fault

Not a realistic portrayal of a crisis center. The characters’ problems were all neatly solved in a time span of 17 days at Lovey’s shelter. The characters were unidimensional and predictable. Only for those looking for a Hallmark version of serious events.

Heartwarming

I loved the Sweeney Sister books and this story of Faith and the Home for wounded hearts was wonderful. I loved the characters and the concept of the home. I wish there was more of this kind of love in the real world.
