The Color of Home: A Novel

We rated this book:


Alex Satterborn runs a small online music studio and sometimes writes his own songs. Devastated by the early death of his father, Nick has been searching for love in all the wrong places. Now he just wants to find the one girl who feels like home. He’s pretty sure he’s found what he’s looking for in Sassa Vikander, a beautiful young chef with her own tragic past. But is Nick what Sassa’s been searching for? How can she commit her whole self to anyone when she doesn’t even feel whole? So starts a quest of self-discovery for both lovers. Will they return to each other even stronger, or will bad choices and worse timing conspire to keep them apart?

Told in four parts, this story covers five years in the lives of Sassa and Nick, sometimes together, often separate. It’s a quiet sort of story, mostly told in conversations and philosophical ponderings, but it teeters on the edge of heartbreak—even during happy moments. It’s quite the emotional rollercoaster ride, and I disagree with many of their basic beliefs, but there is such sorrow (and hope for release from it) that I couldn’t help but keep turning the pages.
