By Phyllis Staton Campbell
Pastor Jim, blinded in Iraq, and his wife Amy settle down after the storm that has almost destroyed the town, only to find that the most peaceful garden can harbor a serpent. The town is thrown into chaos, when a mass killer is returned home to die after fifty years in prison. The town is divided and they find themselves in the middle.
There is humor when the new church secretary confuses names, and sends the hearse to pick up a dog. A country music singer appears on the scene, and Jim learns a secret from the past.
For readers who enjoy the Mitford series by Jan Karon.
5 OUT OF 5 Stars
After having read Where Sheep May Safely Graze during which I got to know Pastor Jim, wife Amy, their mischievous thunder fearing cat Eve and all the other delightful residents of Pleasantville You can’t possibly imagine my excitement when I learned that author Phyllis Staton Campbell had finally put out the sequel ‘Goin’ Home.’
Using threads of humor, joy, sadness, suspense, and fear Campbell weaves a story which allows the reader to learn valuable life lessons while solving a murder mystery.
Goin’ Home is guaranteed to leave the reader with a great feeling of satisfaction when the last page has been turned.
When I closed the book my only wish was that the author please hurry and write another in what I feel is the best series since that old scripture obeying dog ran through the pages of the Mitford series all those years ago.
I happily recommend it to anyone who will but pick up a copy and read.

“There’s so much sadness in this old world,” Liz said. “Now you take Mary. She’s lived with that tragedy for fifty years. It was awful with part of the town in shock, hardly knowing how they felt about it, and the rest wanting to hang him from that big tree on the town square.”
“Amy was shivering, although the incident had been years earlier.”
“The fog had cleared, but the world was dark.”
