For a time the Guevaras shared their home with Celia's eldest sister, Carmen, and her two children while their father, the Communist poet and journalist Cayetano "Policho" Cordova Iturburu, was in Spain covering the war for the Buenos Aires newspaper Critica. When Policho's letters and dispatches arrived in the mail, Carmen read them aloud to the gathered clan, bringing the raw impact of the war home in a way no newspaper article could do.
(Jon Lee Anderson; Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life)

Is there a phrasal verb 'bring home' there?

Thanks.

There's also an idiom:
"... bring home the bacon..." that adds a different twist.
It's inluded in the UE Reference menu under idioms.
