Home Away From Home

By Penny Frost McGinnis


Will Marigold and Johnny embrace love late in life?

When Marigold Hayes turned fourteen, her mother died, and her father went missing. For forty years, she has searched for her dad and lived a quiet life on Abbott Island, until she met Johnny. As her love for Johnny grows, her sorrow from the relentless search for her father breaks her heart. She begs God to help her move forward with her life before she has no love left to give. Then three mysterious strangers show up who could change her life.

Johnny Papadakis moved to Abbott Island ten years ago. His ex-wife had pushed him away and discouraged him from having a relationship with their daughter. After years of hard work, his restaurant flourishes, so does his relationship with Marigold. As he seeks Marigold's hand in marriage, his daughter shows up on his doorstep, looking for a place to call home.

Can Marigold and Johnny settle the past and move toward the promise of a blessed future?

Book Takeaway:

Marigold is searching for her father who has been missing for many years, when she finally gives her burden to God, she sees He has been there all along. When we look for the Father and find Him, our burdens are lifted.

Why the author wrote this book:

This is book 2 in the Abbott Island series and I wanted to write the story of an older couple discovering romance. Marigold and Johnny are in their fifties and have lived life and experienced hurt. In the end they realize God knew their story all along.
