Summary

As children, they were best friends. In high school, they became so much more.

Sometimes we need to leave behind what we know — the journey to somewhere, anywhere else calling us onward into the world, and so we go. In time we grow older, wiser, and perhaps more than a little world-weary. Eventually, we realize the most important journey of our life will be making our way back to where we started. 

For Breckin Lorry and Mason Miller, returning to their hometown of Cedar Point, Washington wasn’t easy, but healing broken hearts while reconnecting won’t be either.

Can the former sweethearts who allowed their youthful, impetuous choices and misunderstandings tear them apart, discover the meaning of forgiveness? And if they do, will their reunion as the adults they’ve become be worth the 20 years it took them to get there?

Fantastic listen!

That Place Called Home is perfect feel good listen. There is something to be said to listen to a story that is not new adult love, but that kind of love that stands the test of time. Mason and Brekin are high school sweethearts, destined for that lifetime love...until it's not. Decisions made, miscommunication and assumptions pull this young couple apart to live the life they are meant to have. Now, both back in Cedar Point, they meet again. Will they get over their past? Is their love real? I cannot say enough good things about this book. It's realistic and really hits home. DL Lane writes their story, going back and forth from the past to the present in a way that lets us live their journey and understand their hearts.

Troy Duran enhances this gem with his warm, baritone voice. He brings all the feelings, from hurt and frustration to love and happiness all to life. It's a pleasure to listen to.

Emotional love story!

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. D. L. Lane has written a powerful love story of a second chance for love. Breckin and Mason were high school sweethearts but immaturity, inexperience, and lack of communication put them on different paths. Mason is a loving , passionate man. Breckin harbours resentment towards him, but she also still loves him. This time maturity and communication may be on their side. Troy Duran's narration adds so much emotion to this story. He makes the listener feel like you're actually part of this story. I highly recommend this Audible book. The author and narrator make this an enchanting story of love.

Looking forward to the next audiobooks in the series.

Refreshing, Heartfelt, Emotional

This is another book and author I discovered through my favorite narrator, Troy, Duran, who brought Mason and Breckin's story to life beautifully! They are a couple who began as childhood friends and fell in love with each other as teenagers, planning to marry and be together forever. They navigate their relationship with their faith in God guiding them, which I find incredibly refreshing! It's presented in a very realistic, human way, acknowledging that having faith doesn't mean everything will be perfect. In fact, Breckin and Mason hit so many pitfalls along the way, some beyond their control, some created because of lack of communication, misunderstanding and rushing to judgment, that their dreams of a life together are seemingly shattered and they travel separate paths for twenty years.

A few times I felt like I wasn't going to make it through the book.Their heartaches felt so real that it was almost too much for me to take. Kudos to author D.L. Lane for such heartfelt, emotional writing! Add to that the superb narration of Troy Duran, bringing it all to life with his amazing voice, and I was nearly a goner! As tough as it was at times, I loved being right there with Mason and Breckin, going through everything with them, fully invested in their story, which made their journey back to each other even sweeter. I highly recommend this book! I've listened to it in its entirety twice and continue to go back to my favorite parts nearly every day.

Childhood love that last forever!

This was such a refreshing story in which it starts when they are children as friends. Of course, life always has a way of screwing things up but the souls always find a way back to each other or we hope it does. I loved the ending the most. It settled deep in my feels and made me smile. Troy Duran does an amazing job as always! I am really glad I was able to find this one and listen.

True love triumphs!

This is my first book by D. L. Lane and I enjoyed this story about two childhood friends that developed into the great loves of one another’s lives! Mason and Breckin had some outside influences to disrupt what was once a solid foundation causing them to separate only to reunite after over a decade apart. Mason was strong, loyal, loving and communicable. On the other hand, Breckin was impetuous, secretive, nurturing, and resilient. Although both were different they complemented each other perfectly! Troy Duran did a fantastic job narrating! His performance enhanced the listening experience making you feel as if you were actively included.
