Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Journey Back Home by Cheri Swalwell

About the Book

Book:  Journey Back Home

Author: Cheri Swalwell

Genre: Christian Romance

As you know, life isn’t always as it seems.

Ten years, four children, two full-time careers, insane schedules—this is not what Jace and Simone signed up for. When the couple married a decade ago, they shared a passion for serving youth together. They believed their deep love for God and shared interests were all they needed to keep their marriage strong.

With Jace busy as a youth minister on the weekends, and Simone taking care of their four children, as well as her second grade classroom, they barely find time to connect with each other. Travel up close and personal into the home of a youth pastor and his family as they deal with issues far-to-common in this fast-paced society.

Tragedy strikes…an investigation begins…and it seems as though life will never return to the “happily-ever-after” of their dreams.

When their world is turned upside down, the question becomes…will God give the family strength to journey back home?

If you like wholesome fiction with a faith-filled message, buckle in to read Journey Back Home, Book 2 of The Redemption of Green Pines series today.

I read the synopsis of this book, Journey Back Home by
Cheri Swalwell, and knew I really wanted to read it. 
The Cover of this book also intrigued me. 

Jace and Simone have been married for 10yrs, have 4
children and both have full time jobs. Their family schedule
is very busy and they seem to be like "ships passing in 
the night". Jace is a Youth Pastor on the weekends and 
very passionate about serving, something they both have
a passion for. The family suffers a tragedy and now their 
dreams of their Family Life maybe changed forever. Will
their faith bring them closer through this tragedy? Will the
family step away from "Fast Paced Life" to realize time at 
home is what makes the Family Stronger? 

Journey Back Home is Book 2 in The Redemption of Green Pines
series. I have not read Book 1 yet, but I felt Book 2 is a great
stand alone book. I think the theme of this book, Fast Paced
Life could use a slow down, is one that probably resonates
with many families nowadays. I really like how the author 
Cheir Swalwell really brings the story to life, I truly felt that 
I was reading a Non-Fiction book. AMAZING BOOK!

More from Cheri

Journey Back Home was the first novel I ever wrote. The way God downloaded it into my heart was by sharing Simone’s side of the story first. Her journey is shared in the book through a series of diary entries. So I basically wrote the middle of the book first, then the ending, and then went back and wrote the beginning. It was definitely God who tied it all together so nicely.

When I finished writing Journey Back Home, it sat in my computer folders for six years. During that time God took fiction away from me, and gave me the platform of nonfiction. Two years ago, He lovingly gave me fiction back and I pulled it out, dusted it off, and started getting it ready to publish.

However, I realized it wasn’t a standalone book anymore. It was a community, a tight-knit group of people who had much more they wanted to share with readers. And I knew I needed to start with Holly’s story. Adventure’s Invitation, Book 1 of The Redemption of Green Pines, tells Holly’s background which is an integral part of Journey Back Home.

I hope you fall in love with Jace, Simone, their four children, and of course Holly as much as I have. If so, get ready because there are many more people to grow to love in all six books of The Redemption of Green Pines series.
