BOOK THREE in the LOVE FINDS A HOME series

The youngest daughter of the O’Malley clan, Marigold (Mari), returns to Cordelia, Missouri after her big city career took a lurch in the wrong direction, propelled by an affair with a married man. At home, she is enlisted by her sisters to take care of their mother, recovering from a heart attack and subsequent surgery. Mari’s heart needs mending, too, though, and the tonic she finds is strong medicine--a relationship with a “bad boy” childhood friend. In HOME AT LAST, Ms. Corgiat tells the story of many journeys home--not just Mari’s, but that of the troubled children of Lilac and Jon, the focus of the first book in this moving series.

HOME AT LAST is part of the LOVE FINDS A HOME series. All five books, originally published by Penguin's Signet imprint to critical acclaim, are set in Cordelia, Missouri. Two were featured selections of Literary Guild, Doubleday and Rhapsody book clubs. Although the books do not need to be read in order, HOME AT LAST is the third in the series.

Third in the series. This one is the story of Mari, the youngest sister, who tried to derail the romance in the first book. She's a hard character to like--a typical youngest child: self-centered & spoiled, used to getting her own way. An affair with a married man effectively derailed her career, & now she's out of a job, out of money, & pressured by her sisters to stay with her mother who's recovering after a heart attack. She renews her acquaintance with a childhood best friend, Andy, who she remembers as an always-in-trouble drunk. There's also a secondary plot thread about Jon's (from the first book) now-teenage son Michael who's having psychological problems and the effect it's having on Jon & Lil's marriage. I docked this one a half star because Mari was so hard to like, but the writing is superb. The story's all about family and acceptance & blame, and though it has those women's fiction-y themes, its tone (and happy ending) is pure romance. Not a comfortable book to read, but very satisfying. ( )
