Book Review: Lucy Come Home


About the book:

Lucy Come Home by Dave and Neta Jackson

Fifteen-year-old Cindy worked long days beside her migrant worker family in Michigan's sugar beet fields in the early 1940s -- the "war years" -- until she met a dashing young man from a traveling carnival, bringing some joy and fun into her hard-scrabble life. But a tragic twist of fate -- and a dead field boss-- sent the two young people on the run, leaving behind family and everything she'd ever known.

Lucy Tucker, the crotchety old bag lady from the popular Yada Yada House of Hope series, is a veteran of Chicago streets and not about to give up her independence, even as she approaches her 80th birthday.

Until, that is, a young displaced woman with her gentle aging mother and a dog named Dandy seem to need her -- unsettling the secretive Lucy, who doesn't let anyone get too close. But just when it seems her past is catching up with her to bring her in out of the cold... Lucy disappears again. How these two tales intersect and intertwine between past and present gradually shines light into the dark corners of Lucy's murky past. But.... why won't Lucy come home?

My Opinion
This book is part of other parallel novels from the Yada Yada House of Hope and Harry Bentley series. I really wish I would have read those other books (I am definitely going to have to read them now!) because I think I would have understood the characters a little more.

However, as a stand alone book it was really good and had me interested in the story line from the first chapter! I love the historical aspects of the book and the look into the Depression and the 1940's of our country.
