A story of second chances, both for the prodigal child, as well as the "boy next door." Kayla Mac is a superstar, a musician taking the world by storm. She is also a child of God, and of earthly parents who are none too fond of the lifestyle she is living, and the choices she has made. Kayla comes home from her music tour after receiving some disturbing news from her mom. Her dad, who has always been her champion, is happy to see her, but she's not certain about her mom's feelings about her visit. Kayla escapes from the house into the potter's studio of Dane, a hometown "boy next door" kind of guy she went to high school with, but doesn't really remember. Their resulting relationship has highs and lows, fits and starts. I kind of feel like Dane's character is a bit too easy going, and a bit too ready to accept Kayla into his life, flaws and all. I think a bit more tension and struggle in that relationship, particularly from Dane's perspective would truly make this a 5 star book. I definitely enjoyed the book, and would welcome a sequel to this story.

I loved Kayla and Dane's story! Kayla was a famous singer who took time off from her career because her father was dying. She became reacquainted with Dane who had attended school with her. The book was one of renewing old acquaintances, allowing God to work on one's life, and finding one's true love! Highly recommend this book!

This is a great story about second chances. It was a good easy read with great Christian values and morals. I enjoyed the authors style of writing. Some people may call it preachy but we as true Christians should never get tired of scripture and the victory that we can have serving the Lord. The problem with our world today is that we don't hear enough scripture. I could personally relate to Kayla, heroine, as I also rebelled against my parents and their strict Christian values. My life was almost destroyed but a loving Savior was merciful enough to give me a second chance.

Kayla and Dane’s story is truly amazing. Kayla has lived a life that her family and friends didn’t approve of. When her father gets sick her life will change. The way Dane helped her will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. The characters in this story are very special people. You will feel God working throughout this whole book. I had the honor to review this book for the author for a honest review. I would give this book a higher rating than a five star review if I could.

A beautiful story of redemption. A lump of clay in the hands of the Master Potter becomes a magnificent vessel of honor. Kayla was a misguided woman who have herself to selfish desires and wasteful living trying to find joy and fulfillment. When her father's cancer takes her back home to her godly roots, she finally comes to understand her Heavenly Father's love. I can't say enough to tell how God's love is expressed in this book. Thank you, Juliette for this book of redemption.

Kayla is in a bad place, spiritually fighting against God, at the beginning. However, when she gets bad news about her dad’s health, she runs home to be with him, where she meets Dane. She is drawn to his shop, looking for a gift, and finds herself fascinated with him and his pottery. This book drew me in and kept me reading, fascinated with the story; and by the end, I found myself sighing, “Ahhh!” I would recommend it for a good Christian romance story!

This story reminded me of God's goodness and love. In this day and age it's so easy to get distracted and forget He's in control and only wants what is best for his children. I usually read sweet and clean romances - and this book was definitely that - but I really enjoyed the bible verses and the way it reflected how comforting it is to walk a Christian life. I can't wait to read the other books in this series.

This is yet another amazing book by Juliette Duncan! I am never disappointed in her books and always look forward to the next one! You won't be either. This book is about more than just the characters...it's about love, hope, redemption, and second chances. I received a free copy of The Homecoming, but voluntarily reviewed.

This is a sweet, easy read to sit back, relax and key down from a busy, stressful day. It was good but lacked the emotional pull of relating to the characters. I would loved to have 'felt' their pain more than read about it like a script. That being said, it was a good read and taught some valuable life lessons.

I loved this book, The Homcoming by Juliette Duncan. It is always good to be reminded of how God refines us daily. We are never to old to grow in his faith. Dane's total devotion to God was inspirational to read about. The affect he had on Kayla was remarkable. This is a gentle easy to read book and I highly recommend it to everyone. I look forward to all the other books in The Potter's House series.
