In Eden's second series installment (after Longing for Home: A Proper Romance), Katie Macaulay, who gave up her dream of returning to Ireland, now turns her mind toward making a home in the wilds of Wyoming where the Irish are still unwelcome. A harsh winter rekindles Katie's painful childhood memories of the potato famine. Meanwhile, two suitors vie for her heart, and once again she must search her soul for the answers to her questions and rely on her faith to guide her toward her future. The protagonist's character development especially shines through in this series entry. Readers will root for her to find the happiness, love, and forgiveness for which she has always longed.
VERDICT Eden's heartwarming romance shows how having faith in oneself and in God can lighten burdens and heal hearts. Recommend for fans of historical or Western romance and those who have longed to find a place that finally feels like home.
