Homecoming by Tanya Bullock
The Last Word Review
heart-warming and poignant love story so beautifully written. One short story not to be missed.
Homecoming by Tanya Bullock billed as ‘Quite possibly the strangest romance ever told.’ What you end up reading is quite possibly one of the most heart-warming love stories in a novella format you may ever read. It is poignant and beautifully written.
In under 90 pages this short story will be read in one afternoon and quite possibly read again it is that good. Without giving too much of the storyline away and that is difficult with novella’s.
This is the story of Rosie and Tom and set both in the present day and looking back to when they first met just before the outbreak of WWII. Now both in the nineties but what so they believe. Despite living in a nursing home Tom is totally devoted to Rosie and will do anything for her. At times the story is totally heart-breaking as the story address those suffering from dementia and not recognising family members will upset anyone who has gone through a similar experience.
I loved both Rosie who has a real sparkle in her eye and Tom the war veteran whose passion is nature and the outdoors. Homecoming
a story that is so delicately handled as they share their memories or what they believe their memories tell them that is true.
It has been both a pleasure and a privilege getting to know them a very special couple.
Tanya Bullock is a writer of immense quality and one I am so looking forward to reading more in the future and if Homecoming is anything to go by then future accolades will be well deserved.
