* Home Leave by Brittani Sonnenberg


Home Leave features a family whose workaholic father takes around the world, forcing his daughters and his wife to reinvent themselves across multiple continents. The story is told from multiple perspectives, including the grandmother’s house, a tour de force that flops, sadly. The author spins interesting tales but they never seems to rise higher than how confusing it is for children and spouses to tag along to locales they did not choose and how expat families retract on themselves.
