Alegra Lawrence has a childhood legacy to live down when she returns to Shelter Island. But at least now she's successful and pretty, not the same little girl who was ridiculed by the kids. Can the place of her worst heartache become the place where she finally finds love? That's what she hopes when she meets Joe, the son of a man who was kind to Alegra when she was younger. He's back too, to run the family business. Alegra's Homecoming (4), by Mary Anne Wilson, is a heartwarming story. Alegra and Joe will find a place in readers' hearts. This novel is by turns humorous, sad and romantic -- engaging at every step.
