Longing for Home, Book 2: Hope Springs

All is not well in Wyoming. Katie Macauley gave up her life-long dream of returning to Ireland in order to make a home for herself in Hope Springs, but her future has never been so uncertain. The town is more divided than ever, with both the Irish and the Reds stealing property, burning buildings, and endangering lives.

Katie’s heart remains sharply divided between her love for playful Tavish and steady Joseph, a decision she feels ill-prepared to make. In the midst of the growing unrest, temperatures drop quickly, too quickly, and Irish nightmares of famine and cold resurface as the little Wyoming town struggles to beat the harsh winter.

Katie makes one sacrifice after another to keep the peace and help see her loved ones through the difficult days ahead, but will it be enough? Can the town make amends before their hatred consumes them all? And will Katie find the love she has been searching for as well as a home to call her own?

Coming March 4, 2014

I love your books...I work for Deseret Book in Bellevue WA. I tell everyone you can't write them fast enough for me. Everyone loves to read your books when I suggest them.
I, too, suffer daily with a chronic pain syndrome....disco- genic pain. I have to take pain killers and gabapentin every day...but I do my best to keep busy to help me forget.
I also love to read. Thank you, thank you Sarah, for your books. As long as you keep writing I will keep reading and suggesting your books. Hang in there Sarah. The Lord will never give us more than we have strength to endure. You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
Love, Angie...your biggest WA fan!

I already emailed you (just a few minutes ago accually) about this book. But I'm just so excited for this book! Longing for Home was the first book of yours I read, and I loved it.
Also, after seeing the above comment about an 80-year-old enjoying your book, I thought it might encourage you to know that your books truly apeal to all ages, as I am a 14-year-old-book lover. The cover is bueatiful and your discription sounds entriging (sp?). If this book is half as good as Longing for Home was, YOU may just become my new favorite author!!!!(Sorry Shannon Hale!!!!; Your still great to!!!)
