Overview

A Place to Call Home by Deborah Smith

Twenty years ago, Claire Maloney was the willful, pampered, tomboyish daughter of the town's most respected family, but that didn't stop her from befriending Roan Sullivan, a fierce, motherless boy who lived in a rusted-out trailer amid junked cars. No one in Dunderry, Georgia--least of all Claire's family--could understand the bond between these two mavericks. But Roan and Claire belonged together...until the dark afternoon when violence and terror overtook them, and Roan disappeared from Claire's life. Now, two decades later, Claire is adrift, and the Maloneys are still hoping the past can be buried under the rich Southern soil. But Roan Sullivan is about to walk back into their lives....By turns tender and sexy and heartbreaking and exuberant, A Place to Call Home is an enthralling journey between two hearts--and a deliciously original novel from one of the most imaginative and appealing new voices in Southern fiction.

A beautifully crafted story with very realistic, well-defined characters and events. At times raw with emotion, but pure romance in the love and devotion between Claire and Roan. This story is so good that I immediately reread most of it to soak up any details I'd missed the first time through.

This book is genuine magic. I bought this book out of sheer curiosity and I¿m glad I did. I love this novel and I recommended it to anyone who loves romance. The love between Roan and Claire makes you believe in pure, innocent love straight from the heart. The characters come to life making you feel like your part of this amazing family. They seem so real that your heart breaks when theirs breaks, and it glows and blossoms when theirs blossoms. Simply Magic!

I have read quite a few books lately, and this one is by far the best out of all of them. I have never read a book before that has brought me to tears. It was just that moving. When I read the part when they seperated them, it broke my heart. And then all the events that follow... I recommend this book to everyone. Everybody should read this book.

I picked this book up at an airport bookstore. I wanted a long story to read while I was in Germany for work. This book from start to finish captivated me. I couldn't wait to get back to my hotel to read each afternoon. Having a step-mother that enjoys reading I purchase another copy for her. Very, very good story...

When I picked up this book, I had no idea what I was getting into! From the first page I was drawn into a big Southern family and all the drama that entails! The fun, romance, loyalty-issues and healing are all great in this wonderful Smith novel. I'm a true fan of hers!

I loved this book and was so sad when it was over because I wanted to keep reading about Claire and Roan. Their chemistry with one another and the depth of thier love for eachother is so amazing. It makes you want someone as caring as Roan by your side. I am Twenty one but would recomend this book to anyone from fifteen on up. It trully reaches your soul and lifts your spirit.

So far away from what I usually read but I couldn't put it down... A biography of immigrant family, a girl and a boy from the wrong side of the tracks... Claire grew up over a 20 year period and Roan had so much going against him... But, she was his "cheerleader" from the time she was five and he was 10... Although they were separated for many years and through many obstacles they found their HEA... BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN!! Early on I thought I would stop reading but the further I went the further I was drawn in... A beautiful albiet sad, love story of multiple generations all united in a small Georgia town...

I thought the first part of the book was interesting and fun in places. Unfortunately, the second part was very disappointing,

This story makes you love the characters and hate them as if you were part of the story. I loved the way family is described.

I love the setting and how it's closer to home. Claire is a really good character who's just like me, waiting for a childhood friend to return and take you under his arms knowing he will. SOOO SWEET and the plot's def. well developed.~Little Mermaid
