'Huawei': A foreshadowing name?

If you have ever walked through divorce or have someone walking through divorce (as I do my oldest daughter), Stealing Home will help you to experience the pains and problems that a person feels. Maddie is not prepared for her doctor husband to tell her he is leaving her and her three children because he has gotten his nurse pregnant. Maddie is torn because she thought her marriage was going fine and had no clues there was anything wrong. Bill, the doctor husband, reaps the chaos he has sown upon his family when the nurse realizes he does not love her and is still in love with his ex-wife, or so she thinks.

But by then, Maddie has moved on and regained her self-confidence. She has friends who stand by her through all the struggles she faces. She comes out a much stronger and better person.

Cal Maddox, coach of the baseball team, coaches Maddie's oldest son. When Ty is going through a hard time and about gives up the joy he loves in baseball, it is the coach who helps him out of the slump.

Cal takes it slow getting to know Maddie.

But living in a small town (as I do), gossip is the biggest problem. People stick their noses where not needed and gossip and jealousy rage until the coach almost loses his job. But as in any small town, the outcome of a board meeting assures Cal that he still has his position, as he declares his love for Maddie.

There is so much I could relate to, living in a rural community and my daughter walking through divorce, although my daughter relocated.

Sherryl Woods has a way of drawing you into all the feelings that people endure as they go through a divorce and try to rebuild their lives. This book is hard to put down.
