A story of one man's struggle to rethink his vision of the perfect family, true friendship, and what home really means.
When Ethan's wife walks out in search of something more, his first priority is to protect his three teenagers from further heartache. He should have been a better husband. Now it's time to be a better dad. Ethan grew up in a loving, supporting family, and his kids deserve the same. Besides, he doesn't have to go it alone. Rex, Ethan's best friend, is more than willing to step in and help keep chaos at bay.
Ethan thinks he's doing a decent job juggling the responsibilities of a business owner, landlord, and recommitted father. Can he also squeeze in a little romance? He hadn't intended to start dating again . . . though an unlikely friend seems interested, and Ethan can't help but feel intrigued.
But a devastating fire changes everything. Lives and livelihoods are at risk. Suspicions and doubts threaten to undermine all that Ethan holds dear. Will he be forced to acknowledge that sometimes those closest to us succumb to their inner demons when they suffer unthinkable loss? When trust is shattered, can old friendships guide us home again?
Rebuilding Home, the third book in Kimberly Diede's heartwarming Celia's Gifts series, follows Ethan's emotional journey from fractured illusions, through tangled paths of hope and despair, to the renewed possibility of happiness.
