When architect Gregory Hampton’s son, Davey, starts having trouble in Little League, Greg takes him to an eye doctor. The diagnosis hits them hard. Davey’s sight is degenerating rapidly, and eventually he’ll go blind.
Tom Spangler is used to getting what he wants. When Greg captures his attention, he asks Greg for a date. They have a good time until Greg gets a call from the friends watching his son, telling him Davey has fallen. Greg and Tom return to find the worst has happened—Davey can no longer see.
With so much going on in his life, Greg doubts he’ll see Tom again. But Tom has researched beep baseball, where balls and bases make sounds to enable the visually impaired to participate in Little League. Tom spearheads an effort to form a team so Davey can continue to play the game he loves. But when Greg’s ex-wife shows up with her doctor boyfriend, offering a possible cure through a radical procedure, Greg must decide how far he’ll go to give Davey a chance at getting his sight back.
So what did I think?
I’m the first to admit that I have a BIG soft spot for Andrew Grey. This is my 32nd story from Andrew so that definitely says something. He’s my go-to author when I want to read something sweet with emotional pull, a little bit of sexiness and a nice happy ending.
Love Comes Home didn’t disappoint. Perhaps not as good as the first book in the series , Love Comes Silently, but great just the same.
In Love Comes Home, Davey is a little boy who is going blind. His father, Greg, is doing his best to cope. He has a supportive network of friends (little glimpses of the guys from the past books in the series) but it is new friend, Tom, who really helps both him and Davey.
“It’s the funny thing about hearts. The more people you love, the bigger they get.”
There is some romance but this story primarily sends a message about dealing with the challenges life faces you. It is about how a father copes with the stresses of watching his child deal with something as traumatic as blindness. It is about looking for new alternatives rather than giving up on life. The whole concept of Beep Baseball was fascinating.
Here’s a link to a YouTube clip about Beep Baseball. It’s pretty amazing!
