Katie Macauley gave up her lifelong dream of returning to Ireland in order to make a home for herself in Hope Springs, Wyoming, but her future has never been so uncertain.
Katie's heart still remains sharply divided between playful Tavish and steady Joseph, though she feels ill prepared to make a decision. Furthermore, the town is more divided than ever, with both the Irish and the Reds stealing property, burning buildings, and endangering lives.
In the midst of the growing unrest, temperatures drop quickly - too quickly - and Irish nightmares of famine and cold resurface as the little Wyoming town struggles to beat the harsh winter.
Katie makes one sacrifice after another to keep the peace and help see her loved ones through the difficult days ahead, but will her efforts be enough? Can the town make amends before their hatred consumes them all? And will Katie find the love she has been searching for as well as a home to call her own?

After reading Part 1, I thought the first book needed some questions answered. This could have been a frustrating trilogy. But Sarah Eden wrapped it up in two very good books rather than one decent trilogy.
Enjoyed the journey of the 2 books until the conclusion. It felt like the author was tired and just wanted the story to end - so tied the drama up into a neat package and said good night. Disappointing after the emotional investment. Cassandra Campbell performance never disappoints.
I enjoyed the story but felt it dragged on and on. I would have been happy with a condensed version. Even though the ending was predictable, I finished every word to the end and she'd a few tears.
Clean, good writing. Not easy to listen to at times because of the hatred that was allowed to exist so openly and publicly then, but very real. The resolution was believable and not overly Pollyanish. The narrator was outstanding!
I was thoroughly enchanted by book 2. I was so in suspense about who Katy would marry and in the end I was not disappointed. Thank you for a wonderful romantic book filled with many life lessons in the midst of so much love and turmoil! It is a very appropriate romantic novel that I can recommend to my granddaughters for enjoyable, suspenseful and captivating reading.
This book is a sequel to Longing for Home. The first one is great, and this one is even better. The romance side of the story builds, and then there is a tragedy. As in the first book, the narrator does an excellent job with the Irish accents. I would have gladly given this book 5 stars if it had been Christian fiction with a spiritual theme. It is a very clean book, no bad language and no explicit sex. I highly recommend this series!
I listened to the first book in the series and thought that was charming this was a wonderful continuation and a positive ending for all of the characters involved. I hope that there will be more books in the series.
narrator was fine.....really enjoyed the book.....story of 2 feuding factions........how factions were brought together due to tragedy and loss of life....but book had a sad but good ending....and no illicit sex!!!!
