On September 17, we will be discussing the contemporary romance, Home
Song by LaVyrle Spencer.
Tom Gardner has a life others dream about. As a high school principal
and father of two, he is well thought of and respected in the
community. His wife, a high school teacher, is loved by students and
parents alike. This is the family we all hope to have. Like all of us,
Tom has a past in which a choice made will come calling to upset his
present happy home. On a long ago night, Tom gave in to passion. Like
so many who have made a decision of this kind, he went on with life
never dreaming how this one night of youthful passion might come back
to affect his present. Passion, once chosen, often exacts a price.
There is a new student at Tom's school--a boy he learns is his son. If
there were such a thing as an emotional earthquake, Tom is in its
center. How will he answer the questions raised by his wife, children,
and community? A role model for so many, how much should he reveal
about his past and to whom? What should he say to this new son he
never knew he had? Every parent is a role model for their children.
Who doesn't love sitting atop the pedestal parenthood often creates?
How can a marriage survive such devastating news? Does it have to be?
Can good come out of this for all those concerned? Love often
necessitates reaching beyond another's mistakes to forgiveness. Should
his wife and children forgive him? Would you, if this happened to you?
Should a good family life be tossed aside because of one indiscretion?
Tom loves his family. He has moved beyond his past and made a life of
which he can be proud. In the twists and turns all lives take, how
much do we owe others? Back then, he had no idea he would be a role
model to so many. When young, we seldom give much thought to the
impact our choices may have on others. What should Tom do? Are there
times when reparation cannot be made? For a discussion of a subject
both touching, heart-wrenching and timely,I invite you to our romance
group on September 17. Information from the Bard site about this book
appears immediately below.

The Gardner's, married for eighteen years, appear to be a happy
family. The father is a high school principal, the mother is a
teacher, and the son and daughter, a senior and junior in high school,
are intelligent and popular. But as a new school year
begins, a cloud appears on the horizon: Tom Gardner learns he has
another son, who is registering as a senior at his high school. Some
strong language and some descriptions of sex. Bestseller.
