A Christmas Homecoming
Seven Christmases have passed since Sonia Pettit last heard from her daughter Jody. Since Jody’s departure, Sonia’s world has been turned upside down. Her husband has died of a broken heart, and her son, bitter over his sister’s destructive actions, has become rebellious.
Her greatest desire is to have her family together at Christmas, but after what Jody has put them all through, can Sonia truly forgive her daughter?
Jody Pettit O’Dair ran away to experience a life of adventure and excitement, but since her
departure, her world has been turned upside down. She’s been abandoned by the man she met and married, lost her job, and is unable to care for her two children. With nowhere else to turn, this prodigal daughter begins the long journey home and prays she will be welcomed after walking away so long ago.

My Review: 
This is an interesting story with Jody having left home 7 years ago and leaving a trail of questions and fear. She didn't know what it would do to her parents or brother but knew she wanted to go somewhere. This is something she has lived with for 7 years and now due to circumstances she wonders if her parents would want to see her again after this time. The story deals with the consequences of these actions. It shows how a missing child can really impact on a whole family and also deals with forgiveness and acceptance. Loved the way the story is handled and it was one Christmas story this year I didn't cry in. I really loved the story. I can also appreciate more what my Aunty when through when my cousin ran away for several years.
