(July 12, 2011 - Random House)

There was not much information to be found about this book, but based on what I did find, I think it sounds wonderful ---

"Jenny Wingfield has given us a spectacular novel with The Homecoming of Samuel Lake.  This ensemble of unforgettable characters will make you laugh out loud one minute, hold your breath in the next and weep when you least expect it.  I didn’t just love this book; I adored it."
--Dorothea Benton Frank, New York Times bestselling author of Lowcountry Summer

“Jenny Wingfield’s richly detailed account of good and evil in 1950s Arkansas will captivate anyone who treasures the values of faith and honesty that are a part of America’s rural past. Wingfield’s sense of people and place is uncanny. After reading The Homecoming of Samuel Lake, you too, will believe in miracles.”
-- Sandra Dallas, New York Times best-selling author of Prayers for Sale and Whiter Than Snow

  7. My first thought when I saw the cover: Freedom by Jonathan Franzen. I'm curious what the bird connection in this novel will be!

  11. Well, first I would want to read it because the cover is beautiful (yes, I'm just that shallow) Then the authors who blurbed (I don't really think this is a word but I'm sticking by it) the book make me want to read it also. Adding it to my keep an eye out for list.
