A mother makes a heartbreaking choice in this unforgettable story about devotion and sacrifice in World War II–era France by the New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names.

A second chance at motherhood for Marie. After three years, an inseparable bond is created. It’s one that leads Marie and Josiane to an inevitable but surprising reckoning that calls into question what motherhood means—and where it ends.

Kristin Harmel’s The Road Home is part of Good Intentions, a riveting collection of stories about the instincts, fears, and fierce love inherent in motherhood from award-winning, bestselling authors. Read or listen to each in a single sitting.

Kristin Harmel is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Paris Daughter, The Forest of Vanishing Stars, The Book of Lost Names, and a dozen other novels translated into more than thirty languages. She is also cofounder and cohost of the web show and podcast Friends & Fiction.

My review for book 3 in this series

I really enjoyed this story, and the style of writing. I've not read anything of this author's before but you can bet it won't be the last. 
It was such a sad story, but in the end, it was one of pure beauty and love. It was also a prime display of how cruel life can be. The irony in itself at times is maddening. I'm so glad this story had a happy ending. I was worried for a minute though that it wouldn't.
Really great writing!!

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
