Three stories, tied together with one common thread - West Virginia. Decades and lifetimes apart, it was interesting to watch their stories unfold, and see how they all led back to rural Appalachia. I wasn't quite sure what to expect going in, but I definitely wasn't disappointed. The characters were complex and driven, with different motivations. Although at times the perspective shifts were a little confusing, overall I really enjoyed reading this! ( )

On Home is a multi-generational tale that reckons with grief, sexuality, woman- and parenthood, and what it means to come back home. When an unexpected tragedy strikes Cassidy's family just after her Grandma Jane is diagnosed with dementia, she has to return home to small-town West Virginia. After an emotionally charged hookup with an old friend, Cassidy finds herself pregnant and at a loss for the next steps.

This story is told from the perspectives of Cassidy, her mother Paloma, and her grandmother Jane. While all three women must contend with their ideas and feelings about motherhood, their approaches to their new role is vastly different. Each woman learns the power of finding her roots and returning to them. Cassidy must come to terms with her identity as a lesbian, which means coming out to her mom, her friends, and herself. Paloma must cope with the grief of multiple miscarriages and her feelings of marriage to Cassidy's father. Jane is coping with her decision to have an abortion in the midst of the War.

Ultimately, I really liked this book. While I didn't like the characters that much, I did find their struggles relatable. Of the three narrators, I liked Paloma the least. Despite that, I think that the stories intertwined very well and tied up nicely. Dobias navigates the family dynamics in a way that readers can understand and potentially relate to.

Overall Rating: 3.5/5 (rounded up to 4)

On Home will be available for purchase starting August 24th. Be sure to add it to your Goodreads shelf and see where it's available for purchase. Also, be sure to check out Becca Spence Dobias's profile on Inkshares!

I was lucky enough to be able to read this Advanced Reader's Copy through my partnership with NetGalley. All opinions are my own. ( )
