"Here and Again" by Nicole R Dickson Book Review #Sponsored

We recently had the chance to review the newest novel from Nicole R Dickson, Here and Again:

Deep in the Shenandoah Valley, the present and the past are as restless as the river mists. And when they collide, the heart is the only compass pointing home.

For nurse Ginger Martin, her late husband’s farm is both a treasured legacy and the harbinger of an uncertain future. Since he was recently killed in Iraq, every day is fraught with grief that won’t abate. Keeping the farm going and nourishing her children’s hopes without him seems as impossible as having dreams for the future—or going back into the past....

By a curious coincidence, a stranger appears in Ginger’s life, always showing up to help in unexpected and much-needed ways. He says he’s a soldier, lost and trying to make his way home, but Ginger understands that Samuel is a kindred spirit, longing to repair a life interrupted. The challenges of their hopes and longings will test who they really are in the most heartbreaking of ways. And only by coming to terms with their losses and the necessity of change will Ginger and Samuel be able to each make a future of their own—and discover at last where their true home lies...."

What we thought:
This is a really beautifully written book.  It is very well-written and immediately draws you in and keeps you invested until the last page.  Reading it, I really felt emotionally involved in the character's lives.

  The book is set up in a way that the reader goes back and forth between Ginger's story and Samuel's story, seamlessly, and each time you get a better understanding of the struggles these characters have faced.  Though heavy with loss, this book is about the characters' respective journeys of healing.

Dickson does a great job of visually creating the scenes of the Shenandoah Valley.  It was easy to get lost in the pages of this book:)

ABCD Diaries gives Here and Again an A+!
