After a vicious attack in Central Park, supermodel Liza returns home to Syracuse, New York, where she lives quietly, owning and operating her own resale shop. Everything seems to be going well for her. Erik Price is a world-renowned artist. He comes to Syracuse, New York to live in the home he inherits from the father he never met. Strange things happen in the homes of both Liza and Erik. It appears as if their homes were stops used by escaping slaves on the Underground Railroad. The couple is forced to join together to find out what is happening to them as they experience recurring dreams in Marcia King Gamble `s novel This Way Home.
Believing that Erik stole the home that rightfully belonged to her sister and mother, Liza had nothing but contempt for Erik. However, Erik saw a beautiful lady with whom he could have a relationship. When they discover they have the same reoccurring dreams, they are drawn together to try to figure out the mystery surrounding their homes. Thus, they elicit the help of Sam, an elderly blind neighbor, who seems to have the answers to their questions.
Gamble pens a romantic mystery that is big on romance but falls a little short on mystery. The Underground Railroad and the strange occurrences in Liza and Erik's lives storyline was good but could have been better developed to make the story really fascinating. Just when I was getting geared up to read about the mysterious on-goings, I would get side-tracked by the author taking a detour and writing about the budding relationship of one of the secondary characters. While the book was an enjoyable and quick read, it had the potential to be much more.
