Since I'm participating in the "Longing for Home" blog tour, I wanted to share my review of this fabulous book. The blog tour can be found {HERE}. I don't know about you but I love romantic stories so I'm super excited that Shadow Mountain has a new brand called,
“An engaging and heart-warming story.” —Julianne Donaldson, bestselling author of Edenbrooke  Though she was only a child during the darkest days of Ireland’s Great Famine, Katie Macauley feels responsible for the loss of her family’s land and the death of her sister. Now a woman grown, Katie has left Ireland for America and the promise of earning money enough to return home again and plead for her family’s forgiveness. She arrives in Hope Springs, Wyoming Territory, a town sharply divided between the Americans who have settled there, with their deep hatred of the Irish, and the Irish immigrants who have come searching for a place to call home. Her arrival tips the precarious balance, and the feud erupts anew. Even in the midst of hatred and violence, however, Katie finds reason to hope. Two men, as different as they are intriguing, vie for her heart, turning her thoughts for the first time toward a future away from Ireland. Katie must now make the hardest decision of her life: stay and give her heart a chance at love, or return home and give her soul the possibility of peace.

 In my opinion:
I always love a beautiful romantic story so I was delighted to read Longing for Home by Sarah Eden. This was a really fun and engaging story about a girl named Katie Macauley trying to find her home. The title definitely fit the entire story as Katie struggled with trying to fit in and belong. It was a touching story and all I wanted to do was hug Katie and tell her that things would change and get better. It was neat to read about the Irish but I wanted everyone to get along. Why can't we just all be friends. It would make life so much easier!!!

Although I didn't want the story to did, but the best part about Longing for Home is that there will be a sequel coming Spring of 2014. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book. I guess I'll have to check out some of Sarah's other books as I'm waiting for the sequel. Sarah Eden is a remarkable writer and I'm so glad I stumbled across one of her books. What a great opportunity!!! I know you will all enjoy reading Longing for Home.
