Growing up, Cassie Carter and her sisters, Karen and Nichole, were incredibly close—until one fateful event drove them apart. After high school, Cassie ran away from home to marry the wrong man, throwing away a college scholarship and breaking her parents’ hearts. To make matters worse, Cassie had always been their father’s favorite—a sentiment that weighed heavily on her sisters and made Cassie’s actions even harder to bear.
Now thirty-one, Cassie is back in Washington, living in Seattle with her daughter and hoping to leave her past behind. After ending a difficult marriage, Cassie is back on her own two feet, the pieces of her life slowly but surely coming together. Despite the strides Cassie’s made, she hasn’t been able to make peace with her sisters. Karen, the oldest, is a busy wife and mother, balancing her career with raising her two children. And Nichole, the youngest, is a stay-at-home mom whose husband indulges her every whim. Then one day, Cassie receives a letter from Karen, offering what Cassie thinks may be a chance to reconcile. And as Cassie opens herself up to new possibilities—making amends with her sisters, finding love once more—she realizes the power of compassion, and the promise of a fresh start.
Once again, Ms. Macomber has woven a charming tale dealing with facing life’s hard knocks, begging forgiveness, and gaining self confidence.

There is so much more to LAST ONE HOME. The heartbreaking issues of separation and loss of parents and siblings, only scratches the surface. Creative information is given to the reader of the consequences and terror of an abusive marriage. Managing to find redeeming qualities in a man after near death from another, is emotional and takes renewed faith. Debbie Macomber never disappoints me. I snatch up every story this woman writes, even though she keeps me crying through half of it and my heart aches. She always manages to leave me with a warming of the soul and fuzzy feelings that stays for days. If you don’t grab LAST ONE HOME, it’s your definite loss!
