Publisher's Summary

Twenty-six-year-old Katie Macauley has placed all her hope in Hope Springs, a small town in the 1870 Wyoming Territory. But if she wants to return home to Ireland to make amends with her estranged family, she’ll need to convince the influential Joseph Archer to hold true to his word and keep her on his payroll as his housekeeper - despite her Irish roots. The town is caught in an ongoing feud between the “Reds” - the frontiersmen who would rather see all the Irish run out of town and the Irish immigrants who are fighting to make a home for themselves in the New World.

When Joseph agrees to keep Katie on ash is housekeeper, the feud erupts anew, and Katie becomes the reluctant figurehead for the Irish townsfolk. As the violence escalates throughout the town, Katie must choose between the two men who have been vying for her love - though only one might be able to restore hope to her heart.

    "A sweet love story."

    Good character development and a nice clean love story. I have a soft spot for the Irish accent. The end left me wanting to read the sequel.

    "GREAT STORY! COULDN'T STOP LISTENING!"
    Would you listen to Longing for Home again? Why?

    I sure would. It was such a great story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Longing for Home?

    Man, there were too many. I don't know!


    What does Cassandra Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Irish accents for sure!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did tear up a bit at one part.


    Any additional comments?

    So far, my favorite book from this author. It is going to have a sequel that I already can't wait for. The story is definitely not over yet!!!

    "Absolutey Wonderful"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Longing for Home to be better than the print version?

    This is the best book I have listened to in a very long time and that is really saying something!!!! I am so glad I listened to this one, instead of reading it. Great Job Sarah Eden and Cassandra Campbell.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is not just a romantic story, although it has a very sweet love story involved, but it has a great overall story behind it. I loved the characters and the learning and growing they do throughout the story. I loved the Irish history, something that was new for me. I was sad when it ended and wish the author would keep the story going for longer. Maybe book 2 :) !! I loved the characters and would be interested in seeing how life plays out in their future.


    Which character – as performed by Cassandra Campbell – was your favorite?

    The performance was incredible and I enjoyed listening to all the voices she used for each character, none were annoying!!!!! The accents were awesome!


    If you could take any character from Longing for Home out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Joseph. I want to know more of his history with his wife.


    Any additional comments?

    Best audio book I have listened to in a long time!!!!

    "great listen"

    I enjoyed this lively novel, but hate that it was only setting us up for the next in the series; it would have been nice to have at least one thing resolved in this book!

    "Lots of charm!"

    If you like a traditional romance that focuses on relationships and not sex ,then this is the book for you. The only thing I have a challenge with is the love triangle but I am hoping that all three members of the love triangle find A happy ending. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. This is the first time I have ever heard/read a book by this author. I thought the narrator was perfect.

    "Poorly written"

    The plot is interesting but it doesn't go any where. The book ends with nothing being resolved. The characters are all wonderful people. Too wonderful. People have a past but no real character flaws. The many descriptions are repetitive . This is a love story only.

    A nice historical love story, love of country, love of friends and neighbors. Clean enough for a young teen to hear. Interesting enough to keep you listening. Beautiful narration.
