Coming Home is a book about life’s unexpected changes, dealing with them, and coming to the realization of what is truly important in life and how to be happy.
Justin and Jackie Jacob have just separated, with Jackie taking Jesse, their daughter and heading to Illinois to live, back to where Jackie’s family lives.

However, because she feels her family will give her the support and help she so desperately needs, she is certain she is fleeing to a safe place.
After arriving in Illinois, she reconnects with her parents and older sister and her family.
Then Jackie and Jesse head to Jackie’s grandparent’s house to visit them where an unexpected event happens that will change everything for both her and her daughter.
And just when she believes everything is working out for the better for both their futures, another very unexpected event happens that shakes her to her bones, causing her to once again contemplate a change.
