If you could sum up Calling Me Home in three words, what would they be?
A heartbreaking beautiful life-story
What did you like best about this story?
That I could feel that this partly was a true story. Life stories such as these are with us here in real life. It never felt unrealistic bot wow so very romantic it was.
Which scene was your favorite?
Maybe in the end was it that very last one. So touching. But there were a bunch of good moments there.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, this one needed time. I needed time to melt it all, to get new strength and think about what just happened etc.
Any additional comments?
Higly recommended! These narrators were both perfect and did it so very well. - I LOVED this story and the audiobooks listening was absolutely stunning gripping at times. - Don't forget your tissues.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. I loved it. A hard-hitting, touching story of love and loss, race and hopelessness and of the damage that society can subject its people to.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I cannot choose between the two main characters. Both were well-crafted and rounded and one without the other is unthinkable. The story is dependent on the relationship between the two women and, therefore, the one complements the other.
What does Bahni Turpin and Lorna Raver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Both narrators were excellent and their readings added colour and character to the book. These readers were obviously very carefully chosen and the people who cast them have to be congratulated.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I cried at the end of this book. Both characters were very real to me, but the end was perfect.
Any additional comments?
A lovely gentle listen even though the story was harrowing at times.

This is a story that gripped me from the start because both main characters are interesting and strong women in different ways. This is emotional without being sentimental and artfully unfolds the story of a life. Highly recommend.

I loved this sweet and tender story. It helped me consider how life was at this time in history and gave me a greater understanding of how difficult things were even for those who didn't agree with the segregation.
Loved it couldn't stop listening. Highly recommended! The narrators really draw you in at every word.
