Read Calling Home Janna McMahan Ô 0 Free download Calling Home Read ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Reaking first novel Janna McMahan brings to authentic life the dreams passions and troubles of one southern town where choice isn't always easy to come by and living the hand you're dealt with is a grace all its own A beautifully wrought novel populated by a vivid cast of charactersJanna McMahan takes us completely into the lives of these people and their small town presenting this world with authenticity and dignity I absolutely loved this book and will carry it with me for a long time Silas House. Shannon is a teenager growing up in the small town of Falling Rock Kentucky in the early 1980s Her father has just left her mother to take up with the town s beautician and her older brother Will is about to go away to college Shannon is determined that she is not going to be stuck in the dead end town after high school working in the underwear factory like her motherThis book was definitely not a feel good book the mood was melancholy throughout and the characters especially Shannon faced some difficult situations and decisions It was ultimately about Shannon s struggle to be her own person and break free of the hold her family and the town had over her Even though it was kind of depressing it had a good story that took some surprising turns

Read Calling Home Janna McMahan Ô 0 Free download Calling Home Read ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook From an extraordinary new voice in fiction comes a haunting powerful novel about mothers and daughters choice and regret the mistakes we make and the ones we hope we can correct before it's too late Nothing much ever happens in Falling Rock Kentucky So when Virginia Lemmons' husband takes off in his Trans Am to take up with a beautician there's not much to do but what people in rural Kentucky have always done get on with it Now overwhelmed and unsure Virginia's got her hands full trying to keep it. Every once in a while about once a year if you re really lucky you read a novel that is written so well written and with such care that it feels like the book is not about fictional characters but about people you know This is not only because the characterization is outstanding and believable but also because the characters seem to have so much in common with you and the people you know And this is the case with Janna McMahan s CALLING HOME At times while reading McMahan s breathtaking novel I felt as if the author must know all of the same people I do because her characters and their experiences were that familiar to me Reading this book was like meeting a person who has so much in common with you that you feel like you ve known her all your life you feel immediately connectedOn a personal note I also loved the mentions of my hometown Bowling Green Kentucky where McMahan s characters go when they want to hit the big city I loved that and Western Kentucky University where I teach But even though CALLING HOME is set in Kentucky its story is universal and the book could have taken place anywhere from Portland Maine to Phoenix Arizona Not only did I feel connected to these characters I also felt completely moved by their stories The things that happen to Virginia Lemmons a woman you both admire and want to shake at the same time which I also love and her family are both believable and shocking At times it s hard to watch their world disintegrate but no matter how rough it gets for them you can t stop turning the page craving of their lives even when they are at their most difficult The story of Virginia s daughter Shannon is especially heartbreaking and anyone who has been through adolescence in other words all of us will relate to her struggle to assert her independence without hurting herself Another aspect of the book I appreciated is that not all the characters lives are wrapped up in a neat tidy bow at the end of the book and their happiness is subdued and honest than it is in lesser novels In some ways it s hard to read a book that gets your hopes so high for such interesting characters and then completely dashes them but in many ways that s what life is really like which is another reason why this gripping novel is so lifelike On top of all that McMahan gives us a turn so shocking that I still get goose bumps thinking about it I wish I could convey to you some of my feelings when much to my surprise I came upon that turn but giving you those kinds of details would be doing the book and you the reader a disservice so you ll just have to read it for yourself and find out Pick up this book as soon as you can I promise you ll thank me later
