    Eighty-nine-year-old Isabelle McAllister has a big favor to ask her hairdresser, Dorrie. She wants the black single mother to drop everything and drive her from Texas to a funeral in Ohio - tomorrow. Dorrie, fleeing problems of her own and curious about Isabelle’s past, agrees, not knowing it will be a journey that changes both their lives. Isabelle confesses that, as a teen in 1930s Kentucky, she fell in love with Robert Prewitt, a would-be doctor and the black son of her family’s housekeeper - in a town where blacks weren’t allowed after dark. The tale of their forbidden relationship and its tragic consequences just might help Dorrie find her own way.

    I loved this book. Long after I finished it I thought about this book often. The story is just excellent. This book makes you laugh and cry.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything, but especially the friendship that developed between Isabelle and Dorrie.


    Which character – as performed by Bahni Turpin and Lorna Raver – was your favorite?

    I loved them both, but I found myself wanting to hear the parts with Isabelle's story the most.


    Who was the most memorable character of Calling Me Home and why?

    Isabelle was the most memorable. Her story is one that everyone can relate to one way or another.


    Any additional comments?

    My sister and I both listened to this book and we both were so affected by it. It was truly a great book. I'll listen again.
