Back to the Homestead paints a believable read with vibrant characters that leap off the pages. This is a story that pulls the reader into the center of the action. I felt so much part of the family. I love the young adults that bring much depth to the storyline, as everyone learns to survive living on the farm. Mary Jean Kelso tells a wonderful story that this reader found completely satisfying. She leaves me spellbound, wishing to read more and this story is no exception!
