A Place Called Home

A Place Called Home Summary

An art restorer looking for a home. A commitment-phobe running from his emotions. A painting which brings them together but which reveals a mysterious past from which neither can escape…

After an itinerant and lonely childhood, art restorer Lucia yearns for what other people have—a home, husband and children. There is no way she’s going to get involved with a commitment-phobe again.

Guy takes the concept of a commitment-phobe to a whole new level—but with good reason. He’s been running from his emotions since his wife’s death. But their lives become entwined when Lucia proves his ‘forgery’ is genuine and reveals a mysterious past from which neither can escape…

Book Reviews


Confusing1 star

Maybe because I don’t understand the various cultural differences in this story but it’s too much going on at one time. I can’t fathom that someone would knowingly sleep with their ex boyfriend, who they claim to still have feelings for, best friend, with no protection. On top of that all of the other arguments and misunderstandings…just too much.15
