Far and near. Lost and found. Four girls. Four generations. Georgia cannot figure out what's going on in her family. Her mother, Francie, is extremely overprotective. Her grandmother, Dana, and her great-grandmother, Abby, don't speak to each other. And Georgia's great-great-grandmother also had some secrets that nobody else knows about. Georgia knows this because she's found her great-great grandmother's diary hidden in a wall in the family's house in Maine. Reading the diary makes her think of her own struggles--and draws her even closer to the mysteries of her family as Abby's hundredth birthday approaches. Home is the Place is the heartfelt, remarkable conclusion to Ann M. Martin's Family Tree series, which has followed Abby, Dana, Francie, and now Georgia from girlhood to womanhood, showing readers the intertwining, extraordinary ways we grow up.

This is the fourth and final book in the Family Tree Series by Ann Martin. I really enjoyed all four books. The family starts in Maine, next generation moves to New York City, the next generation to Princeton, NJ, and in the final book they return to Maine. The authors deals with lots of family issues: an abusive father, death of an infant sibling, a depressed parent, death of a childhood best friend, relocating, mother/daughter friction, death of a parent, single parenting and child abduction. The family comes back together despite their grief, differences and geographical distance. The author shows the importance of families.

The final book of the Family Tree series wrapped up the quartet very nicely, and threw in a few surprises! I can't wait to purchase this entire series since the books cover so much from death of a parent to mental illness and many other tough issues. Would be a great series to discuss with older elementary-aged children.
