Item description for Home Song (Cape Light #2) by Thomas Kinkade & Katherine Spencer...
Overview Finding herself pulled in every direction with no room for her own dreams and goals, Cape Light mayor Emily Warwick struggles to balance town conflicts, the local election, and a family feud between her mother and sister.
Inspired by the artistic vision of world-renowned landscape painter Thomas Kinkade-and imbued with the light of his uplifting message-this heartwarming new novel returns to the quaint town of Cape Light, and the unique residents who call it home... The charming sea-coast village of Cape Light is the kind of place where neighbors help neighbors and people have the time to appreciate God's blessings every day. Their lives are not without disappointment-even heartbreak. But there's something special about this town-and the people in it. Like Cape Light mayor Emily Warwick, who can't remember the last time she let herself dream. And her younger sister Jessica, who is about to walk down the aisle with a man their mother despises. Emily has two months to bring her mother around, but so far-even with their minister's support-her plan isn't working. And it doesn't help that she's still mourning the husband she lost and wondering what happened to the baby she gave up for adoption twenty years ago. Sometimes she thinks it would take a miracle to fill the hole in her heart. But miracles do happen here in Cape Light. You just have to close your eyes-and believe in your dreams...

Reviews - What do customers think about Home Song?
Oh no, not more Dec 7, 2004
Will various banal interpersonal conflicts of a personal nature all turn out for the best in idyllic fantasyland Cape Light? Just as surely as Thomas Kinkade will get millions more dollars selling holiday pennants, air fresheners, Christmas choo-choo trains, and overpriced prints of his egregiously sappy artwork!
In this volume, the good people of the village of cozy cottages, old-tyme independent businesses, and upright churchgoers face yet another harrowing dilema! Should they be evil hypocritical secular humanist snobs and turn away a new center for troubled teens? Or should they do the right thing and trust in providence and be welcoming?
What do you think? Do you really need to shell out bucks and read this schmaltzy little screed to find out? Thomas Kinkade is reportedly worth $75 million. Why further enrich him?
a MUST read!! Aug 30, 2004
This book was great!! If you like a good - down to earth - book, you'll love this. It's SO nice to read a book that is so wonderfully written and inspiring. You can put yourself in this story and then you WANT to LIVE in the town of Cape Light...it's a town of Christian people who love each other...it's what the world is SUPPOSED to be like...it's a town of old. Read it...you won't be able to put it down. Speaking of which...is the boss looking...I'm on the 3rd book in the series and ready to order the 4th and 5th. :-)
A HOMEY, SMALL TOWN STORY Dec 9, 2003
Cape Light is the kind of place where you'd like to spend some time getting to know its inhabitants and enjoy the scenery. It's a town where people hold secrets and pain in their hearts as well as their secret longings. But it's also about people trying to get through the everyday struggles of living and working together. Of course there are those who rub you wrong, as the case is with Charlie, who is not only running against Emily for Mayor, but is doing so in an underhanded manner. And then there is her mother, Lilian, who is against Emily's sister Jessica, who plans to marry Ben. Lillian thinks that Ben isn't good enough for her daughter. They are characters you might judge at first glance, but come to realize the pain and guilt that compels them to act as they do. Much like real people react to mistakes they've made. This story holds secrets to the way we can respond in a possitive or negative way to our wrong choices and how they affect others. This is a good read!

A refreshing change... Jan 15, 2003
I enjoyed Home Song immensely. It is a refreshing change from many books on the shelves today. If you are are looking for some light, clean-cut reading about simple life in a small town, start with Cape Light then read Home Song. Hopefully, soon we will find out when the 3rd book in the trilogy will be out. If you like Jan Karon's books about Mitford, I am sure you will like Cape Light and Home Song.
