Hometown Girl

24105713
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Courtney Walsh returns with a hopeful and emotional new book about seizing second chances, finding yourself, and forging your own path.

Beth Whitaker isn’t supposed to be a small-town girl. She’s always dreamed of leaving Willow Grove, Illinois, for the big city, but she feels trapped, struggling to make up for a mistake that’s haunted her for years. Just when Beth is finally ready to break free, her sister impulsively buys a beloved but run-down farm on the outskirts of town, and she begs Beth to help with the restoration. Reluctantly, Beth agrees to help—and puts her own dreams on hold once again.

Drew Barlow hasn’t been back to Fairwind Farm since he was a boy, and he’s spent all these years trying to outrun the pain of a past he thought he buried long ago. When he learns that the owner has passed away, his heart knows it’s finally time to do the right thing. Returning to Willow Grove, Drew revisits the old farm, where he attempts to piece together his memories and the puzzle of the crime he witnessed so long ago.

Both on a journey to find peace, Beth and Drew are surprised when they begin to experience a restoration of their own. But when long-buried secrets break through the soil and the truth unfurls, will it threaten their budding relationship—and the very future of the farm?

5 Star

I really enjoyed Hometown Girl! I found this to be a book that I related to in surprising ways. Like Beth, I didn’t think I wanted to be a small-town girl. As I got older though, that has changed. For Beth, it takes a new direction to teach her what she really wants.

I found this to be a sweet story filled with interesting moments and issues and characters that come to life. The setting of a farm in shambles was unique and really opened this story up for possibilities. And the hint of mystery about something that happened on the farm added just a bit of tension to keep me curious.

All in all, I really enjoyed this sweet story and would highly recommend it.
