Going Home by James Shipman

Gong home is the beautifully told story of Rebecca a civil war nurse who tends her patient Joseph Forsythe.  The doctor wants to write Joseph off, but Rebecca thinks he can survive his injuries and while caring for him she learns he has a wife and a child.  Rebecca has recently lost her husband and her child and she empathizes with his unseen wife.  We not only get Rebecca’s story but through chapters that alternate in time we get Joseph’s story and we learn how he has worked hard all his life and how it has not always brought him the success he seeks, but he does eventually figure out what he wants, now the real question becomes will his wife Lucy share his dream?  A warm and heartfelt tale of love and hard ship and redemption.
