Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The sprawling lake home Lynn Lundberg built with her husband has been an epicenter of joyful family life, from summer holidays spent around the water, to cookies baked in the kitchen with grandchildren in the fall. But since her husband's sudden passing two years ago, Lynn has been lost in the grief and solitude she feels without him at home. She doesn't want to sell the big family place, but she can't exist there on her own much longer.

"A novel"--Front cover.

Library Journal Review

When Lynn Lundberg's sons urge their mother to sell her house and move into a smaller place next to one of them, they are surprised at Lynn's actions. While Lynn is still mourning her husband's death almost two years earlier, she knows she doesn't want to leave her beloved family home. Instead, she discovers a new trend that might work for her, shared housing. If she can find two other women close to her age-early 50s-she has the house, and they can contribute money and their talents toward living together. Snelling (Reunion) brings together a widow, a new divorcée, and a woman who tended her parents until they died. Each has her own problems. Lynn is mourning while going through menopause; Angela is still brittle and depressed over the divorce; and Judith had dropped out of college and is angry with her father. All these gals are angry with God. Verdict The author succeeds in showing the need to forgive in order to move on with life. Her message is that no one knows why God plans life's changes. Shared housing among three needy women, a situation that leads to a deep friendship, is Snelling's tool for showing God's role in a Christian's life. Recommended for fans of Christian fiction and Snelling's numerous readers.-Lesa Holstine, Evansville Vanderburgh P.L., IN © Copyright 2015.

Booklist Review

Newly widowed Lynn Lundberg has never felt so alone in her farmhouse nestled along Barnett Lake. Unwilling to downsize after her husband's passing, Lynn feels the Holy Spirit guiding her to Judith Rutherford and Angela Bishop, each recently wounded by family betrayal and broken dreams. In need of a home and a fresh start, the three women come together through a new trend of shared housing. Together, they work toward common ground in faith and friendship to make peace with the pain of their pasts. Snelling (To Everything a Season, 2014) offers a thoughtful modern-day read set in Minnesota's restorative lake country. Complete with Midwestern familiarity and charm, it explores new beginnings and portrays the ones who, amid the most unlikely circumstances, help us find our way. Snelling writes of hurt and grief with heartbreakingly raw honesty, and the novel will appeal especially to older women facing dramatic changes in their lives. Snelling loyalists will be pleased that she keeps true to her beloved practice of placing Christian faith and female friendships at the thematic heart of the story.--Campos, Kate Copyright 2015 Booklist
