LONGING FOR HOME by Sarah M Eden--US only Giveaway & Book Review

LONGING FOR HOME by Sarah M Eden. This Proper Romance is a wonderful read. I loved the Irish flavor of the story as well as the setting. Katie was a spitfire character that I fell for the moment she was introduced. It was interesting to witness the tension that was present in this particular story. I imagine it was very prominent in that era. I found myself conflicted as to who I'd like Katie to end up with. My heart feels for both men. It's probably for that reason that the ending didn't satisfy me as much as I would have liked. But I know that there's another one coming soon, so I will save judgement on that aspect until then. :) I would highly recommend this book to any and everyone.

Though she was only a child during the darkest days of Ireland's Great Famine, Katie Macauley feels responsible for the loss of her family's land and the death of her sister. Now a woman grown, Katie has left Ireland for America and the promise of earning money enough to return home again and plead for her family's forgiveness. She arrives in Hope Springs, Wyoming Territory, a town sharply divided between the Americans who have settled there, with their deep hatred of the Irish, and the Irish immigrants who have come searching for a place to call home. Her arrival tips the precarious balance, and the feud erupts anew. Even in the midst of hatred and violence, however, Katie finds reason to hope. Two men, as different as they are intriguing, vie for her heart, turning her thoughts for the first time toward a future away from Ireland. Katie must now make the hardest decision of her life: stay and give her heart a chance at love, or return home and give her soul the possibility of peace.
