Blog Tour Wrap-Up: Go Away Home by Carol Bodensteiner

Today is the last day on Carol Bodensteiner's Blog Tour for her newly released historical Go Away Home and what a tour it's been! Here's a recap for you, as well as links to the giveaways that are still going on.

What reviewers are saying about Go Away Home...

Patty @ Broken Teepee: (4.5 stars) "This is a well written story about a young woman, Liddie who was born on a farm in Iowa at the turn of the 20th century. I felt myself quite engrossed in the story and found it very hard to put down. It wasn't all sweetness and light and Liddie learns some hard lessons as she grows up. Ms. Bodensteiner has a very strong feel for the era and its mores and I would love to follow the characters further."

Kathryn @ A Bibliotaph's Reviews (4 stars): "Bodensteiner draws on familial history within this tale, and her writing leaves the reader with a sense of homesickness for one's family. Her writing style is detailed but not in a manner that overloads the reader with information. She often leaves them guessing as to what will come next. I highly recommend this book."

Lauralee @ History from a Woman's Perspective (4 stars): "Overall, the book is about family, friendship, love, loss, sacrifice, choices, and hope. It is also about a person’s quest for home. The pace of the novel is easygoing, reminiscent of a leisurely Sunday morning. However, it is pleasing and you care what happens to Liddie. I recommend this book to anyone interested in early 20th century America, life in the rural Midwest, and those who face tough choices in their own lives."

Kathleen @ CelticLady's Reviews: "Go Away Home is written abut the daily struggles within a family during a tough time in our American history. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I am not sure if there is to be a sequel, but I think it would be interesting to see what happens to Liddie in the future. I highly recommend this book!"
