Publisher's Summary

Eighty-nine-year-old Isabelle McAllister has a big favor to ask her hairdresser, Dorrie. She wants the black single mother to drop everything and drive her from Texas to a funeral in Ohio - tomorrow. Dorrie, fleeing problems of her own and curious about Isabelle’s past, agrees, not knowing it will be a journey that changes both their lives.
Isabelle confesses that, as a teen in 1930s Kentucky, she fell in love with Robert Prewitt, a would-be doctor and the black son of her family’s housekeeper - in a town where blacks weren’t allowed after dark. The tale of their forbidden relationship and its tragic consequences just might help Dorrie find her own way.

Hope they make a movie!!

A little slow moving at first but I spent many nights up far too long just to get a little more. Funny, sad and touching all rolled into one! Both main characters brought something unique to the story. This is one I will listen to again.

Excellent read

Would you listen to Calling Me Home again? Why?

I hardly ever listen to a book more than once, so no, I would not listen to this one again. It was however, well written and the main characters were complex and well developed. The mystery was interesting since here were several facets to it. I enjoyed it.
