Something Like Family by Heather Burch

Something Like FamilyBook Description:
Abandoned by his mother when he was young, twenty-two-year-old Rave Wayne knows all about loss. That doesn’t mean he’s used to it. After he’s dumped by the girlfriend he assumed he’d spend his life with, Rave is longing more than ever to connect.
Then, as if by miracle, he receives an invitation from his grandfather, a man he thought was long gone, to come for a visit in rural Tennessee. Loyal, honest, and loving, dear old Tuck is everything Rave could have hoped for. He’s family. Soon, Rave finds himself falling for a down-to-earth local girl, and he thinks his life is finally coming together.
But the past isn’t through with Rave. When his mother returns after many long years, looking to reconcile the terrible mistakes that once defined her, Rave struggles to put together the unsettled pieces of his heart. Will this once-estranged family be able to come together to understand the meaning of unconditional love, the fragile bonds of family, and the healing power.

My Thoughts:

I truly loved this book.  It is a story about love.  I was completely pulled into the story the author wove here.  There are second chances, hurt, forgiveness...the good, bad, and ugly of family!  I adore Rave.  He has had some horrible things happen to him, but he is just so good.  Lots of interaction in family and people like family that will tug at your heart.  Some people I just will never understand their actions, but that is because I've not lived their life.  I most certainly enjoyed this story and I rooted for Rave throughout. His family may not be great or even what he needed, but they were family.  So many wonderful things you can glean from this book.  
It was a 5/5 for me.  I will keep this book and reread it often.

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
