Blog Tour - Longing for Home Review and Giveaway







Katie was a young girl during Ireland's potato famine. She still feels responsible for her father losing his farm and also for the death of her younger sister. Katie is on her way to Wyoming to be a housekeeper for an older gentleman, Mr Archer, that she's never met. She's finally almost to her destination when she meets handsome Tavish O'Connor. Katie wants nothing to do with him and treats him accordingly. Unfortunately, the older gentleman that she thought she was going to be working for is nowhere to be found. Mr. Archer is a young widower with two young girls that he expects his housekeeper to care for. Still feeling guilty for her younger sister's death, Katie doesn't trust herself to care for young children and avoids them as much as she can. Because of Katie's feelings about children, as well as the war between the Irish of the town and the non-Irish, Mr Archer doesn't feel that he can honor his deal with Katie and allow her to work for him. Katie is devastated, she had planned on that money to be able to return to Ireland and re-purchase her family's farm for her father, so she convinces him to allow her to work as just a housekeeper at a reduced salary and only until he can find a new housekeeper. What she doesn't count on is her growing feelings for Mr Archer, Tavish and the entire town. Will Katie be able to find peace in this less than peaceful town?

I LOVED this book! Sarah M Eden is one of my very favorite authors. Her books are always full of great characters. I especially liked Katie, she tried to be such a grouch, especially to Tavish, but it's readily apparent to the reader just how much she's hurting inside and her multitude of reasons for coming across as a shrew. I liked the people that she's friends with too. The dynamic of the town was really interesting, with the feud between the Irish and the non-Irish. I really enjoyed it, even though there was a lot of conflict. I was thrilled with the ending too, it was perfect! This book is the newest in the Proper Romance series that Deseret Book has been selling, as such it's a romantic book, clean and awesome! Don't miss this amazing book by Sarah M Eden!
