I'm not sure about the order used for "come" and "from". Is this correct?

He is leaving the house, back to the garden where he comes from.

If the flavor is meaningful, I'm using the sentence for American-English.

  • to "come from" in "where he comes from" means either that he grew up there, or that the place is where he has a home and lives. Is that what you mean to say? – Tᴚoɯɐuo May 13 '17 at 20:40

    Also, we cannot "leave ...back". We can leave, and go back. He is leaving the house, going back to the garden he comes from. – Tᴚoɯɐuo May 13 '17 at 20:42
  • @Tᴚoɯɐuo: That's exactly what I meant, but I used an ellipsis. – mins May 13 '17 at 21:52
