Making It Home
Kate had a home, but her heart wasn’t in it…or in her marriage.
So she left them both.
Phillis had a home…and her heart was in it…but she wanted something more.
So she shopped.
Naomi had no home and her heart was in cold storage, frozen by grief and fear.
So she shopped.
They found one another in a department store.
The problem with ‘retail therapy’: you can overdose.
As friendship grows between these three women, they help one another face up to their problems, realising along the way, that every heart needs a home and it takes more than a house to make one.
A contemporary novel about women who want more.

Some reviews of ‘Making It Home’:
Review byMegan of readinginthesunshine.wordpress.com
‘I want to talk about the cover first – I really like it! It’s a very simple cover, an everyday scene that you might regularly see on a journey home in the evening. But that is what makes it such a brilliant cover – it is familiar, it is comforting, and personally, it made me smile, thinking of all the journeys I’d done with a beautiful sky like that.
In Making It Home, we meet three women, who are all different but find a friendship in each other. They also find they have one thing in common: they want more from life. Can Kate, Phyllis and Naomi be happy with the life they have? Or can they find the courage to reach out for something more?
I really liked this book! One of the things I liked most about Making It Home is that Christine has created three women who could be our best friend, neighbour, aunt and so on. The characters aren’t perfect women with flawless make up and rich husbands, instead they are real, true-to life women that all of the ladies out there will be able to relate to, and that is what makes this story so compelling to read! Personally I love when an author writes about real women, about the struggles and problems that real women may face everyday, and creates realistic scenarios that could be exactly like what the readers could be going through. I am certain readers will be able to relate to Kate, Phyllis and Naomi in some way, whether it is their personalities, their individual situations or the friendship that these characters have with each other.
The characters were very well-drawn and written, I loved the friendship and the bond that the three women created with each other, ad I enjoyed reading and watching this friendship grow throughout the book. I was hooked to the characters individual stories and set of circumstances, I desperately wanted to know how they would progress and on many occasions I was cheering them on from my seat! I liked all three of the main characters but my favourite was Kate.
The novel unfolds at a great pace and I thoroughly enjoyed being able to read this. Making It Home is an absorbing and compelling story about three women, the friendship they strike up, the journey to discover meaning in their life, and knowing that support, love and friendship can be found when you least expect it!’
