Review: Here and Again
After Ginger’s husband is killed in Iraq, she wonders how much longer she can hold onto his family farm. Her job as a nurse doesn’t pay enough to keep up her family and the farm so she thinks it might be time to move on.
Samuel comes along at the right moment and makes quite an impression on Ginger and her kids. He helps them deal with their loss and shows them a way to move forward.
Here and Again by Nicole R. Dickson is such a relevant story for so many families today. Ginger’s family had to learn to move on without their anchor – no easy task for anyone. It looks like they’ll have to make major changes to survive, making the loss even harder.
There is much to like in this book – the lovely writing, the beautiful Shenandoah Valley setting, and the love of Ginger’s family. There’s a supernatural element, though, that I wasn’t aware of going into the book, and I struggled with it. That element kept the book from being great for me. Having said that, I think those who enjoy the supernatural will love this book.
Karen White narrates the audio version of Here and Again and she does an outstanding job! I’ve been a fan of her work for a while and I think this is her best effort to date. She does a fabulous job with voices and even makes some animal sounds! The book is worth listening to just for her narration. The audio book is on 10 CDs and lasts approximately 12 hours.
