Reviews

"It's 1944 and teenager Dennis Hayes longs to join his older brother Glen, who is fighting in Europe..When his family receives word that Glen has been wounded, Dennis realizes that going to war is not so glamorous. Christmas isn't the same without Glen, but the Hayes family members hope and pray that they'll be reunited soon. Hughes's faith-filled, old-fashioned story feels like it could have been written during the period in which it takes place."-- "Library Journal" (10/2/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"A touching story about the healing that comes when hearts are open and past hurts are forgotten during one of the most magical times of the year. Dean Hughes delivers yet another masterpiece in this book set during the 1940s...Help[s] readers remember that true happiness comes from family and service."-- "Deseret News" (12/12/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"A short, sweet book, a nostalgic read that could make a nice holiday stocking stuffer. Readers should keep tissues nearby, as tears may start to flow toward the end of the story."-- "Historical Novel Society" (12/12/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"Beautifully nostalgic. Hughes expertly captures the spirit of family, of war, and of Christmas. Home and Away isn't just a book, it's a gift."-- "Jason F. Wright" (11/3/2015 12:00:00 AM)
