The second book in the "Homeplace" series, I found the story intriguing. However, in comparison with the first book in the series, "Back to the Homeplace", I found it a bit more difficult to follow.

Smith brings characters to life easily enough, but tends to get more technical in the day-to-day job descriptions each character takes upon himself. Perhaps a little less of the job descriptions and a little more in the character build is called for.

Nonetheless, the story, as I have stated, is intriguing and pulls you along to find out what will happen around each bend and twist of the family's lives.

I did find editing to be lacking somewhat, when compared to his previous work. There were not only spelling, but grammatical errors in places.

And I was not impressed with the abrupt ending to the story, although it does leave one feeling like the old cliff-hanger movies of the '50's once did! You can't wait for the next in the series to come out to find out what will happen within the family Bevins next!

All in all, I give The Homeplace Revisited...

...three stars and... Thumbs Up Award!

I highly recommend reading both Back to the Homeplace and The Homeplace Revisited.
Both books are suitable for readers of all ages.
