A Place to Call Home is the first book in the Front Porch Promises series. This story captures so much in it such as starting over, forgiveness, learning to trust again, etc. This story pulled me in from the start. It just felt like you were in a nice homelike setting. Molly had to learn to not be so scared and to trust and to in turn help someone out by giving them a chance. Kurt recently got out of prison for a crime that he claims he did not commit but he is finding it hard to start fresh with his life due to people not wanting to give him chances because they are quick to judge. Was a nice enjoyable read. Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary copy of this book but all thoughts and opinions are my own honest ones.
