One night in February Hans came home from work to find Rainer standing outside his apartment door. This was the last thing Hans wanted. He could only get himself in bigger trouble, talking to Rainer again. "Rainer, you shouldn’t come here. I’ve been followed lately. Someone probably knows you’re here – or will see you leave." "I had nowhere else to go, Hans. I’m hiding out. The Stasi is looking for me." Hans felt his hope drain away. He was caught, either way. If Rainer was telling the truth, Hans should have nothing to do with him. If he was lying, and was actually here it seduce him into a mistake – to please some Stasi agent – that was even worse. Just as Hans’s life is improving, he begins to suspect that German authorities are watching him again. Going back to prison would be painful, but worse is the thought that he might miss his opportunity for a future with Elli. Gene is surviving the terrors of a jungle war day by day, with long periods of boredom followed by moments of utter terror. Can he really make it home, when so many are dying all around him? And if so, will Emily and Danny even recognize the man he has become? Kathy has joined the Peace Corps and traveled to the Philippines, determined to make a difference, but she find that her eagerness to help only alienates people. When the local LDS branch president asks her to accept a calling, Kathy is unsure. She can’t seem to find a place where she really belongs. Diane’s marriage to Greg is certainly not turning out the way she had imagined it. She still has reason to doubt his faithfulness to her, and he’s becoming abusive. Diane wants to make her marriage work, but she’s wondering how many chances she should give her difficult husband. Take Me Home continues the gripping story of life in the sixties for the Thomas grandchildren – a time of turmoil and trial, of growth and self-discovery. If you’re interested in the lessons of history, of if you’re simply looking of a powerful LDS novel, you won’t want to miss this fourth volume of the Hearts of the Children series.
