Young Woman Returns Home to Discover Family, Self

Las Vegas (PRWEB) June 07, 2011

For every child that goes away to college, there is a readjustment as they come home since leaving. Many new students become radically different people or so they seem and both parents and children are forced to adjust. In the new book Victorias Nest: Sequel to Prairie Preacher (published by iUniverse) by P.J. Hoge, Victoria Pepper Schroeder returns home for a funeral as a very different woman.

Megan was a lot of fun but a pretty straight shooter. She was six years older than Victoria and always seemed to have it together. Of course, why wouldnt she? She had an Ozzie and Harriet life, not at all like hers. Her own life was more like the Twilight Zone. She didnt think Megan would rat on her but she would probably give her a heck of lecture if she knew about last night. Victoria wasnt in the mood for another lecture. After all, she would be spending the weekend at home. She would be talked at enough.

Of course, the charged atmosphere of a funeral doesnt make for peaceful reintegration. Pepper clashes with her brothers and her parents until she begins to see them as people, instead of family. As she helps out around the homestead, helping with milking the cows and at her fathers mechanic shop. It is through this mechanism that Peppers perception of her parents changes, and their perception of her.

While at home in North Dakota, Pepper also reacquaints herself with Uncle Byron Ellison, her familys pastor. When more hardship piles atop the funeral and love begins to confuse her, Pepper draws solace from Uncle Byrons advice, learning about herself, the finality of death and forgiveness of bad behavior. Full of both laughter and tears, Victorias Nest is a heartwarming novel of loss and discovery.
