Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed author, whose recent novel of suspense, Losing Faith, was declared "startling...a well-crafted story" (Kirkus Reviews), takes you on a gripping psychological thrill ride in this electrifying tale of a millionaire who will go to deadly lengths to get what he wants.
Jonathan Caine is a true master of the universe - a currency wizard with a trophy wife, a penthouse condo with a view of the Statue of Liberty, and the desire for more - when his world comes crashing down, spiraling him into a relentless fall from grace. Devastated, Jonathan returns to his hometown to care for his ailing father and attend his 25th high school reunion, where he becomes reacquainted with former prom queen Jacqueline Williams. Back in the day, Jackie didn't even know Jonathan existed. Now she is intrigued by the man he has become. But their budding relationship has problems, not the least of which is Jackie's jealous and abusive husband.
Jonathan is determined to learn from his mistakes, but is he capable of complete transformation? Or will a shocking temptation test his desire for redemption beyond anything he could have imagined?

Wanted to like it

I struggled to get into this book. After a few chapters, I really became hooked on the story. I didn't realize the book was almost over and when it ended I just could not believe that was how this book ended. I suppose I thought this book was going in a different direction. Disappointed that I wasted my time listening to it all the way through.

Better production needed

This was a fair story and the reader was fine but I had to listen to his inhales of breath and swallowing through the whole book which drove me nuts. Surely there was a way to edit those sounds! The story has been told a million times and I was waiting for a twist but alas, it never came.

Poor narration

This audiobook has extremely poor narration. I couldn't listen to more than three chapters before I returned the audiobook. I'm hoping that audible releases a new version with a new narrator as they did with Mitzner's last title 'losing faith' from last year.
I'd urge anybody else who finds the narration poor to email audible and let them know. I'm really sad that I can't enjoy this latest Mitzner release as I'm a big fan of his stories!

Loved it! Write more please!

Would you listen to The Girl from Home again? Why?

No , I don't think its a repeat read/listen kind of book.

What other book might you compare The Girl from Home to, and why?

John Grisham, Michael Connolly.
Realistic dramatic storylines involving character strengths and failings, atonement, development, ethics.

What three words best describe Jonathan Walker’s performance?

Not particularly notable or memorable for anything - which is good and as it should be. That lets the story do the work.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Great book. A fantastic audio book to keep as a treat for when you are passing time commuting running etc.
