NATIONAL BESTSELLER Joseph, a man in his late thirties, awakens disoriented and uneasy in a place he doesn't recognize. He doesn't know where he is and he has no way to contact his wife. He sets out on a journey to find his home with no sense of where he's going and only the precious, indelible vision of the woman he loves to guide him. Antoinette is an elderly woman in an assisted living facility. In recent months, her friends seem different to her and the world seems increasingly confusing. So she retreats inside her head. There, her body and mind haven't betrayed her. There, she's a young newlywed with a husband who dotes on her and an entire life of dreams to live. There, she is truly home. Warren, Antoinette's son, is a man in his early forties going through the toughest year of his life. His marriage ended, he lost his job, and in the past few months, his mother has gone from hale to increasingly hazy. With far too much time on his hands, he decides to try to recreate his memories of home by attempting to cook his mother's greatest dishes and eat them with her. Joseph, Antoinette, and Warren are three people on different searches for home.
How they find it, and how they connect with each another at this critical stage in their lives, is the foundation for the kind of profound and deeply moving story we've come to expect from Lou Aronica. PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED AS MICHAEL BARON

Review quote

I felt the desires of each character, their pains and needs for making it to the place where they were going... The ending of this book made me feel at peace, content with the way things ended up for everyone in the story. That's a nice feeling to have when you put down a book for the last time." My Book Retreat Treks the reader through an unforgettable contemporary romance. Hauntingly poignant and beautifully moving, this well-written piece takes the reader on their own journey. This is a touchingly tender story full of emotions that I will definitely recommend to family and friends." Coffee Time Romance A story that is real and will touch you in many different facets... An emotional and memorable tale that will stay with you long after the last page. Simply beautiful." Minding Spot
