In 1919, widowed Hannah McKettrick lived at the ranch with her son and her brother-in-law, Doss. Her confused feelings for Doss and her son's health problems occupied all her thoughts...until the family teapot started disappearing.
Could Sierra and her ancestor, Hannah, be living parallel lives?

This is a great book, its romantic but exciting as well. It's not just a "they fall in love and into bed instantly" type book. Really great story line, complicated, emotional etc. Awesome.
A friend recommended this book as well as the other McKettrick novels. She said she very much enjoyed McKettrick's Way, so I ordered it and told her so. She then said I should read "Sierra's Homecoming" first, so I ordered it, as well. I quickly got into this story and found the characters entertaining, curious, and not lacking in wit and humor. I could see this book being made into a movie, or Hallmark featured movie. The narrator helped to pull the story into a delightful mind's eye view.
This is your basic romance novel, something someone would have written in "romance writing 101". the plot line is completely predictable, the character are not fleshed out enough to be very interesting, the "hook" of things being haunted is so lame it made me cringe while listening. maybe it is because i do not have children myself, but the freakishly overprotective, worrying mother character... just makes me crazy.
the saving grace is the narrator. she does an excellent job, esp with the kids... i finished it because it wasn't horrible, but I am very glad I only paid $5 for it. I actually thought this author was someone else, so purchased it by mistake.
I stopped listening when the love story became graphic sex. I also found it disruptive (maybe more by listening than if I were reading it myself) that there were two stories, one from 1919 and one from present day. The narrative switched back and forth constantly.
Believer in what you can't see
I love that Sierra share here space with another time and some of her ancestors.
The most memorable is the moving tea kettle.
The narrator gives me a homey feeling, and creates a down to earth feeling from the characters.
I wish that the first three books of the Mckettricks was made into an audiobook.
I enjoyed this one. The combination of the past and the future made for an interesting read.
I read so I can write
This is one of the best books I have listened to on Audible. Considering that I have nearly 1000 books in my library, that says much. Strong story, strong characters, great romance.
