Read full description of the books:Home Fires Burning: A Novel was a book that I'd had for years and never read, but I wanted a book to read in between Book Club books so I chose this. There were times that I skimmed because the writing wasn't developing the story fast enough for me. I kept reading because I wanted to see how it ended. I liked that all the characters were dynamic and were participatory, but it was sometimes difficult to figure out which character was being described until I read on for quite a bit. One section that was really interesting and relevant to me was when Jake had his stroke...I just had a stroke a few months ago and Inman's description were so real I had to put the book aside for a bit. Since this was the first Inman book I've read I have a question for you readers who have read several/many of his books: are any of his books focused on females as main chars?acters rather than a supporting character
