Five (5) stars for Elizabeth Grayson’s A Place Called Home, the story of two people yearning to belong. Livi Talbot loses her husband on the trail west to the wilds of Kentucky in 1782, but she pushes on to the land her husband cleared. She doesn’t belong there; she isn’t strong enough for the challenge. Her husband’s half-breed friend, Reid Campbell, has told her of her short-comings countless times. But Livi must risk the lives of her two children and the one she carries. She has nothing to return to. For his part, Reid straddles both worlds, a foot in both, belonging in neither. He’s too savage for white society and too white for the Creek tribe. He feels free in the frontier, trapping and making his own way. No responsibilities, no disapproving stares. While reading about Livi’s journey, at places my heart thundered in my chest. Along the trail, anything can happen, just as it might once she reaches the hostile terrain of the frontier. This is a realistic account, told with great skill. The descriptions are so rich and sumptuous, I experienced the beauty and the grinding work of settling the wilderness along with the characters. The love story between Livi and the land parallels that between Livi and Reid. She despises both Reid and the land at first and has to understand their complexities before she can appreciate them. Peppered with historical landmarks and events, this visit to the past satisfies on multiple levels.

So well written! Ms. Grayson proves to be a great story teller in this novel of hardship and victories. I didn't find any part of it to be slow moving. It held my interest throughout. She painted a picture of the wild west as it really was through her research. I especially love the way she describes the emotions of the characters. The fear, joy, and passion they felt in a raw form. The length of the story was great as it actually told of two romances of one woman who had always thought of herself as too dowdy and insignificant for any man to take notice. This is a must read for all western romance lovers. But be forewarned the love scenes may be a bit more graphic than most readers like. If you can overlook that, you will be rewarded with a well told historic rendition of life as it was for our forefathers to risk it all to tame the west. C. Stotts

I had trouble putting this book down. It had a lot of hardship, but was still a good read.

Really liked this well written and character driven story. Only thing it needed was an epilogue.

Story could have been told in half the half the number of pages.
