Longing for Home by Sarah M. Eden


Sarah M. Eden

I have the privilege of being a part of the Blog Tour for the new novel by Sarah M. Eden, Longing for Home.  I've actually read several of her books in the last year.  I haven't posted a review in a very long time as you know so I haven't reviewed any of her books on this blog but I have really enjoyed them. I have read Seeking Persephone, Courting Miss Lancaster, Kiss of a Stranger, and Drops of Gold.  They have all been fun, clean Regency style romances that I have really enjoyed.

Sarah, (I'm going to call her by her first name because I think she's cool) has taken a little different approach with her latest book.  This one is set in the Wyoming Territory in 1870 instead of Regency England.  When I discovered this I have to say that I was a little disappointed because I would rather read a book set in Regency or Victorian England way more than I want to read a book set in the western frontier of the United States.  I'm glad I gave this book a chance though because it was just as entertaining as Sarah's other books have been.

Katie Macauley is a young woman from Ireland who ventures out west in hopes that the higher wages offered will help her get back to her family in Ireland and repay debts she feels she owes them.  Upon reaching Hope Springs, Wyoming she finds that it won't be as easy as she had hoped.  Faced with challenges in her new employment that bring up painful memories from her childhood and a community divided by prejudice and hate, Katie struggles in her new situation.  Of course, there are a couple of handsome men to add confusion to the mix.  This is called "A Proper Romance", after all.

I enjoyed this as well as Sarah's other books but I am hoping that she's working on a sequel because there are way too many loose ends to tie up. For those of you who are like me and enjoy a good, clean romance, look for Shadow Mountain Publishing's new branding "A Proper Romance" that you will find on some of their novels.  I think it's a great idea and I look forward to reading more of these historical "proper" romances.

Hi Kim! So glad you're blogging again. I just started reading this, and I'm excited about the Proper Romance division too.

I can relate to what you said about being disappointed it's not in England in some distant period. My obsession with England is never abated. You can never have too much of British lore, legend, and culture. But then I saw the character is coming from Ireland and going out West. That would pull me right back into the story. It's almost as interesting as being set in England because it's still a person from the United Kingdom -- and the culture they bring with them -- coming out into a wild frontier. You still get a fix of culture from Across the Pond, but get to see it as it reacts to America. Cool stuff.
