Author: Melanie Campbell

Release Date: November 1, 2020
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Women’s Fiction

She’s hanging by a string—with only one chance left.

A recovering alcoholic and longtime widow, Sharon has struggled to build a new life. She’s made amends with her only daughter, Cassie, who’s been through a treacherous divorce. Cassie’s daughter, Renee, too young to understand her grandmother’s earlier mistakes, has become the light of Sharon’s life.

But Sharon can’t seem to escape from her past. Her mother’s deathbed confession haunts her. Convinced the answer to truly overcoming her addiction lies with her biological father, Sharon sends off a DNA test in the hope of finding him. When the results of the test aren’t as revealing as Sharon anticipates, she and Cassie team up to find the truth.

Meanwhile an old flame shows up. Sharon doesn’t think she can ever love again, but what Johnny offers seems like a dream come true. His charm and kindness shine so bright, Sharon can almost believe he’s changed.

As the search for her father continues to frustrate and tensions escalate with Cassie, Sharon wonders if leaving it all behind for a life with Johnny will save her crumbling heart.

Will the truth set Sharon free? Or it will it be the final blow to her sobriety?


There were no more words to say. None that would erase the words I’d already spoken. I stood, facing Cassie, whose face had become as hard as stone.

Was she done with me? How could she not be?

“I’m so sorry. My reaction was…wrong.” My chest ached, the fire of anger still burning.   In some ways, it was like I was losing Steven all over again. All because I was trying to make right generations worth of wrongs. Like letting Renee take the trophy to school could somehow undo the loss of a father, or the emptiness of having never known a grandfather.

Don’t lose sight of the finish line.

I wasn’t even sure I was still in the race.

    My adopted daughter is doing a DNA search for her birth father right now and struggles with addictions, so elements of this novel resonate with me. I’m interested in reading One Way Home.

    Addictions and other negative behaviors can often be traced back through one’s family, but God can break those patterns if we have faith and trust in Him, surrendering the bad to Him.
