This book is set in the 1950s and 1960s and follows the Moscatelli family who live in a small town in Massachusetts Dahlia and Louie are foster parents to Jimmy Zaidie and Jon One day Agnes shows up to live with them but Dahlia really does not want to take in another little girl Agnes comes and is deeply connected to each family member and shows the strength and bond possible in families Over the years we follow the family as they experience many heart wrenching situations that force them to fall back on family for support I really loved the characters in this book Each was very dynamic and we learned a lot about their background and why they are the way they are I really loved the inside look into a foster family and found myself rooting for each character throughout Jimmy was a very devoted older brother that struggled with his fathers past but would do anything for his foster parents and siblings Zaidie was extremely sweet and caring and went through so much trying to care for her brother Jon She took Agnes under her wing and the two were inseparable Agnes was deeply troubled and experienced so much as a young kid She had bounced around with so many different families and truly bonded the Moscatelli family Both Dahlia and Louie were very complex characters that we learned about throughout the book I do wish there was description of the town in which they lived I was a little confused in the beginning with who each person was and what their background was and it seemed to take some time to learn about each persons past but it may have made things clear early on Overall I felt very invested in the lives of the characters and I would love to read a seuel to follow the characters on their future endeavors Thank you to NetGalley and HarperCollins for the ARC in exchange for an honest review

Patry Francis ï 2 Summary

All the Children Are HomeRifically abused and neglected they can’t say noSix year old Agnes Juniper arrives with no knowledge of her Native American heritage or herself beyond a box of trinkets given to her by her mother and dreamlike memories of her sister Before long this stranger in their midst has strengthened the bond in this unusual family showing them how to contend with outside forces that want to tear them apart Heartfelt and enthralling All the Children Are Home is a moving testament to how love can survive in the face of devastating losse. All the Children Are Home is an Epic Saga about a foster family I happen to really like books about the foster system A lot of these books mostly shed light on the ugly part of the foster care system but this book shared a family that was really doing good I thought this was written very well and had a very interesting storylineI have always liked sagas as wellDefinitely recommended
