Return to Home: An Experience That Won't Soon Be Forgotten
ISBN: 1449768520

Westbow Press. 2012

Return to Home, an adventurous page-turner, has Mark Watson, devoted husband and father, eventually wondering where his real home is.


Though attached to his Savannah, Georgia, home and family, he finds himself in another situation so exciting and enjoyable that he’s not sure he wants to leave that situation either, as it presents an entirely different and intriguing adventure.


A real estate salesman, he later takes on an exciting challenge within the field that promises to allow him travel and an upgraded income.


Along the way, he encounters very powerful people and messages that create impactful and lasting changes in his Christian outlook, making him regret his former agnostic convictions. Through Mark’s God-ordained, never-before adventure, He learns things that God makes clear He wants Mark to know—things which not only impact Mark, but those he loves.


He is given a huge secret he is never to reveal, lest something terrible happens to him and his beloved family, which leaves him feeling torn between two worlds: those of loyalty to both.


The long-lasting messages conveyed through Mark’s experiences are conclusions that God Himself made sure were those of which Mark was well aware, even throughout both worlds he came to love and sincerely embrace.
