    • I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The characters were realistic and likeable, the romance kept me guessing, the history was eye-opening, and the conflict intense. The only thing I didn't like was that the storyline was not completely wrapped up and I have to wait for a sequel

    • This was a little different from Sarah Eden's other stories. First of all, it was a little more of a downer than her regency ones. Secondly, it wasn't a regency story--it was a western. I love the name of the town--Hope Springs. ButI was surprised at how much the town was divided. I was surprised that the hatred of immigrants extended out West. I know the people started spreading out but I would have thought that everyone was just trying to make a go of life out West and were generally more acce [...]

    • This is by far the best Sarah Eden book I've read. It probably deserves 5 stars, but the love triangle didn't work out the way I had hoped. This triangle was an exception to my rule that love in the shape of triangles stinks. I just wish the writing had made me love the losing party less! At any rate, all involved are mostly working at friendship, so there's not a romantic see-saw going on. I don't understand why the Irish were so hated. I wanted to kick the owner of the mercantile in the teeth! [...]

    • Sarah Eden is one of my very favorite clean romance writers. It was with glee I responded to the request from Shadow Mountain to review this book. Seriously? Uh, yes. Yes, yes, yes. Thank you Shadow Mountain for hooking me up with this book to review. You made my day.I love historical fiction and combining romance with historical fiction is like raspberries and chocolate to me. Yummy. I loved this book. It was everything I was hoping for when I first laid eyes on it.When we first meet Katie she [...]

    • Longing For Home is a well-written and satisfying story with endearing characters and a fascinating glimpse of Irish culture in the Old West at a time when prejudice against them prevailed throughout most of the country.I thoroughly enjoyed Longing For Home and consider it well worth the wait. It is a deeper, more involved story than Sarah’s other books, proving that she has taken her talent for storytelling to an even higher level. The characters are dimensional and real, with histories full [...]

    • 3.5 I liked this one. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but overall I liked it. Our heroine, Katie, has a lot of spunk. She has had a very hard life and is pretty hard on herself. She has moved to Wyoming to try and earn enough money to move back to Ireland to help out her estranged family. Once there she finds a new family and friends who love and accept her. With their friendship she really starts to warm up and open her heart to letting people in. Her sad story is a constant part of the [...]

    • I hate triangles. Hate, hate, hate.The writing is OK, nothing special, but I didn't enjoy the story or romance.*I received this book as judge for an award contest*

    • I had a hard time deciding what to rate this one. I enjoyed it a lot even though absolutely nothing happened in 400 pages. I like that Sarah Eden has expanded to some stories about the American West, and I think she did a fine job of it. I also like that she didn't write in a heavy accent. More writers should learn that telling the readers that the character has a heavy accent is far less disturbing to the reading experience than attempting to write it out. My biggest problem with this book I di [...]

    • After struggling through a couple of so-so books, Sara Eden came to the rescue once again! I have thoroughly enjoyed everything I've read by this author and Longing for Home was no different for me. I love how Miss Eden's characters seem to jump of the page and take on a life of their own. Going into reading this one.I do wish I would have known that this is just BOOK 1!!!There is a love triangle and it's so frustrating because BOTH guys are SO likeable! I was so excited to see that this wasn't [...]

    • 3.5 starsI listened to this on cd and read it when I wasn't listening. If I hadn't been able to listen to it I don't know if I would have finished it. It seemed to take forever to get through. And after 400 pages there still isn't complete closure. That drives me crazy. But I liked Katie, and Tavish, and Joseph. I cared enough about them to finish this book. It was a good story overall. Just very drawn out. Like a 400 page set up for the next book

    • Let's start a slow clap for Sarah Eden's best book yet! Seriously I thought that this was such a sweet story! Have you ever watched Far and Away with an Irish Tom Cruise? It's amazing and reminds me a whole heap of this story! This is a love story that is like molasses! It's a sweet and slow romance and you just find yourself enjoying every minute of it! Twenty-six-year-old Katie Macauley has placed all her hope in Hope Springs, a small town in the 1870 Wyoming Territory. She comes into town wit [...]

    • This is a fresh new take on stories of 1800's America about an Irish immigrant with good reason to be angry and bitter, yet despite her initial prickliness, has a tender heart and a strong, unbreakable will. Her backstory unfolded naturally and was compelling. There was a love triangle, which, at first threw me because that's not Ms. Eden's usual MO. I dislike most love triangles but this was very well done. The heroine's character arc is gradual and believable. The romance is tender and left me [...]

    • Beautifully told historical romanceI read an advance copy of this book from NetGalley and was excited to see what one of my favorite Regency authors would do with a new historical setting. Hope Springs is a small town in the middle of Wyoming and the "Reds" (anyone who isn't Irish) and the Irish have been in a feud for years. When Katie arrives at the home of Joseph Archer to serve as his housekeeper, the first thing he does is fire her. Katie comes from a long line of hardships, and this proves [...]

    • The characters were easy enough to like, but the conflict of her being in the center of a feud and having such power to make that big of a difference was annoyingly far-fetched for meuldn't quite get around it

    • Review: fireandicereads/2013/0 Sarah M. Eden is one of my go to authors for clean, historic romance. So, of course, when I saw stack including Longing for Home at the Shadow Mountain booth at BEA I may have squeed a little. This is my first choice from the books I picked up at Book Expo America. Within days of arriving home from NYC, I had already read it and wanted to hug it just as Katie MacAuley hugs her violin on the front cover. Katie is exiled from her childhood home after famine and harsh [...]

    • I have loved all of Sarah's books. There is just something about her characters and style of writing that strikes a chord with me. This book was no different.We are introduced to Katie MacCauley who is traveling to the Wyoming territory to accept a job as a housekeeper. She is traveling in the back of a family wagon, uncomfortable around children because of what happened to her sister. The first line of the book is, "Eighteen years had passed since Katie Macauley killed her sister." If that does [...]

    • Katie Macauley was eight when her family lost their land during Ireland's Great Famine. Her father became a broken man and her younger sister died. Katie blames herself for this loss and vows to make it up to her family even as she enters into a life of servitude from a young age and is separated from her family for good.Eventually she takes on the position of housekeeper in Hope Springs, Wyoming. But the small town is divided because the Americans despise the Irish. Despite this feud, Katie fin [...]

    • (4.5 stars)Katie Macauley is a 26-year-old woman who heads to Wyoming so she can save enough money to go home to Ireland. She's going to be the housekeeper for Joseph Archer. She was delayed in her journey and ends up hitching a ride into town with Tavish and Ian O'Connor. Ian is married but Tavish is very single and very handsome. She meets Joseph Archer and he's also young and handsome, but is also a widower with two children. Katie feels she can't be trusted with children because of something [...]

    • From the first sentence, I was intrigued by the main character, Katie, and the situation she found herself in. The progression of the story felt natural, the main characters complex and interesting. I loved that I was quickly immersed in Katie's new world, discovering the West along with her and learning about Katie's past with her friends. The fact that this was not your typical western/pioneer setting I found refreshing, and I appreciated the glimpse into the history of Irish immigration in th [...]

    • I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sarah Eden's books!I have read EVERY ONE of them!I LOVE her strong female characters!I LOVE the sweet and tender romance she includes!I LOVE reading about the "proper way" in which one had to conduct oneself during that time.I LOVE how positive her books are!I just LOVE her writings!In the past she has always had the setting be during the 1800's in EnglandIn this book it is still 1800's, but the setting is in Wyoming, USAA time of struggle.A time of poverty.A time of feuding.Kat [...]

    • Twenty-six-year-old Katie Macauley needs 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. When Joseph agrees to keep Katie as his housekeeper, the feud between the Irish immigrants and frontiersmen in the 1870 Wyoming Territory erupts anew, and Katie becomes the reluctant figurehead of hope for the Irish townsfolk. As the violence escalates throughout the town, Katie must choose between the two men who ha [...]

    • Review originally posted on Tressa's Wishful Endings.If you follow my blog at all you probably know that I love Sarah M. Eden. She is one of my favorite historical romance writers. I wrote a post awhile back about her that you can read, if you're interested. You may also be aware that I have been very excited about this new line of books from Shadow Mountain called A Proper Romance. Edenbrooke: A Proper Romance, which was one of my favorite books from last year, was the first book in this line. [...]

    • This was my second read through and I think I enjoyed it more than the first time. It had been long enough I remembered the main storyline but not all the details. I'd just purchased the second book at a summer sale and was very excited to read it but first needed a refresher. I think Katie is one of my top 20 heroines. She's strong, hardworking, stubborn, she's lost everything but keeps living and surviving. She isn't afraid to call people out when they are in the wrong nor is she afraid to cha [...]

    • Audience: Adult (Clean)Genre: Historical RomanceLength: 386 pgs.Rating: ***** (A fantastic, fabulous book)Review: LONGING FOR HOME has a very special place in my heart. If you read my reviews regularly, you know I'm a BIG Sarah Eden fan (and that might be an understatement). Imagine my joy when I got a tweet from her asking about my home state of Wyoming, particularly of northern Wyoming where I grew up. Emails followed, and I'd have to say, I count this interaction of the beginning of actual fr [...]

    • I have read several of Sarah Eden's books now. They are all relatively quick reads and contain wholesome messages and characters. They are just good clean love stories :-).I liked the characters in Longing for Home and could relate to them. Katie's transformation from "Prickly Pete" to "Sweet Petunia" was a bit of a stretch. I did grow tired of the constant references to each character's personality - I felt like I was being "updated" after the commercial break in each chapter. But I did find my [...]

    • I love Sarah M. Edens they are all so good. Her other books are regency so this was a fun break away from her previous genre. I actually really enjoyed the historical side of this book, learning more about the Irish in America and how they were not received all that well. Katie Macaulay is a young women headed to the wild west of Wyoming to save up money to go back to Ireland and make retribution for something she feels was her fault, which had a devastating fall out for her family. Did she do i [...]

    • This is a beautifully written book. Kate is a young lady who has regrets from her past. She is seeking a way to return home when she finds her way to a small town in Wyoming. Her task is simple, take the housekeeping job and earn the money to redeem herself.As always, life is never as simple as you hope it will be. She finds herself in the middle of a war between the Irish and the rest of the population of the town. For me it is hard to fathom such a deep level of persecution. The hatred that th [...]

    • I really want to like Sarah Eden's books, because I've loved so many of them. There was a lot about this book that I really liked that. But there were quite a few things that I didn't like. Usually what makes the difference between a 3-star book and a 4-star book is whether I would read it again. I can't see myself picking this up again. I have all of her books, and many of them I've read 4-5 times. They are perfect to fill an evening. Not so with this one.Let me start out with what I liked. Mos [...]

    • This book is labeled “A Proper Romance” on the cover. I think that’s because there is no sex, and only one exceptionally chaste kissing scene. The “Proper” bit almost made me put the book down. I’m glad I didn’t. I read this book quickly and enjoyed it, in spite of the treacly and repetitious spots, and moments when the main character doth protest too much. This is a sweet romance that takes place in a small Wyoming frontier town. But it illuminates an historical reality that was a [...]

    • First off, let me tell you that Sarah is a phenomenal writer. I have loved every book she has written. Her attention to detail and incredible gift at crafting historical romances never ceases to amaze me.After reading Longing For Home, I have a hankering to visit Ireland, and I'm betting you will too! I love a good romance, but the plot must have some meat in it for me to chew on while reading. Sarah provides a backdrop from history of the discrimination the Irish faced upon landing on American [...]
