Life can change in a matter of moments, as eighteen-year-old Mary Ellen finds out when her parents are killed in a tragic plane crash and she is faced with the loss, the pain, and the rebuilding of her life. This dislocation becomes the primary dramatic centerpiece to Maggie Ann Ross’s "She Came Home," a book that enters the readers emotions like it’s heroine does in its pages, with heartbreaking beauty, the sense of love in memory that will never come again, and a faint, tremulous hope for a future blown by the bitter winds of fate.

The only child of Dallas and JoAnn McCarthy and mature beyond her years, Mary Ellen, with the help, gentle guidance, and unwavering love of her father’s business partner and his wife, is forced to make critical decisions about college, her home, romance, and her life. By the strengths within her character, she must be able to transcend the harshest of dire life circumstances. The book displays this process with an adeptness and delicacy ably done by the author.

Radical changes, profound love, joy, anger, and deep, immense sorrow are heaped upon this very beautiful young woman-child in the roller coaster ride through the next chapters of her life. Will she ever be able to find the kind of peace again that she’d had before that one tragic day? Will she ever be able to tell herself that she will actually be able to come home again once and for always? Maggie Ann Ross displays a skilful psychological and romantic portrait of a young woman on the verge of becoming.
