The Homecoming by Juliette Duncan

A New Song

The Homecoming by Juliette Duncan is a delightful Christian romance and the first book in The Potter’s House series.

There are many godly themes and lessons to be learnt. God is the master potter. His hands are on our lives. He moulds, refines and fires us if we just say ‘yes’ to His call. “God was in the business of changing people’s hearts.”

We need faithful Christians to lovingly guide us to God. “God could still work in her heart… whether she was in church or not.” Church is important as the body of believers help us in our walk with God. Transformation of hearts can happen anywhere.

Prayer is our lifeline to God. We can talk to Him anytime, anywhere and know that He hears us.

The lessons learnt in childhood form the foundation for our lives. If we build our lives on God, we will always have a firm foundation. If we stray down the wrong path, our conscience will surely prick us.

Trusting God in the good times is relatively easy. Trusting God at times of ill health or crisis is much harder. We can trust God at all times. “We’re trusting in God, whatever the outcome.”

Death is not the end. For the Christian it is a ‘see you later’ and not a ‘goodbye.’ We can have hope because of Jesus.

Juliette Duncan has created wonderful, warm characters whom I loved. The story is told in the first person from two alternating points of view. We hear both the saved voice and the enquiring voice who wants to believe but isn’t quite there yet. Their interactions and outlooks are a joy to witness. A kind word can transform a heart and correct far better than a cross one.

A fabulous tale to kick off a new series. The Potter’s House series is a set of books by different authors but with similar themes running throughout. You can start from this book one or dip in and out of the books as they are all stories within themselves. Whatever order you read them in doesn’t matter but you seriously do want to read them all. They are wonderful.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
