Theo has returned home from combat and rehabilitation hospital, trying to overcome both the mental and physical wounds from the service to his county. Theo and Meg end up talking during his welcome home party; Theo needed to get away from the crowd and Meg trying her best to conceal her unrevealed pregnancy.
Meg and Theo ended up connecting. Theo volunteers to help Meg unpack her house and prepare the nursery for the baby. Meg and Theo begin to care for each other and finally give into their attraction. Thus begins their journey riddled with the baby-daddy, medaling family and friends, Theo trying to heal himself, and Meg overcoming her own mother bonnement issues.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I felt the story line was good and realistic; Ms. Ashby’s characters where real and experienced real problems. After about the half-way point of the book, I felt that there were a couple of things just thrown-in to try and make the book more interesting and have more conflict. I felt that the book probably would have been just as good without these things but overall, I enjoyed When You Make it Home.
