Publisher's Summary

Home to the Fletcher family for generations, Dare Island is a fishing village rocked by changing times - its traditions slipping away like sands of the North Carolina coast. Single dad and fishing boat captain Matt Fletcher deferred his own dreams to support his innkeeper parents and build a future for his sixteen-year-old son. Matt has learned to weather life's storms by steering a steady emotional course...and keeping a commitment-free approach to love.
Newcomer Allison Carter came to Dare Island to escape the emotional demands of her wealthy family. The young teacher aims to build a life here, to make a lasting place for herself. She doesn't want to be another Woman Who Once Dated Matt Fletcher. It's both tempting and dangerous to believe she can be something more.
Then Matt's brother Luke makes a sudden return home, with a child of his own - and a request that will change all their lives. With a child's welfare at stake, Matt must turn to Allison to teach him to let go of the past, open his eyes...and follow his heart.


What the Critics Say

"Wonderful story! Carolina Home is an excellent, entertaining, romantic read. Virginia Kantra has created a splendid new island series, this being the first. The characters are so beautifully drawn that I'm now reading the second in the series." (Robyn Carr, author of the Virgin River series)

Enjoyed my first visit to Dare Island

I have had this audio for awhile and finally got around to listening to it. I really enjoyed it. One of those great family oriented contemporary stories, that I know I just want to keep listening to, to catch up with the family. Loved the plot, the characters and the narrator did a fabulous jobe.

Fabulous story...better storyteller...

Where does Carolina Home rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Even if the story was weak Sophie Eastlake would have made this enjoyable to listen to...but the story was compelling and left a warm, fuzzy spot in my heart. The son, the parents, even the obnoxious sister were alive in the telling of this story, I think you'll find you feel you know them when you are done, as I did. If you want a good family feel good story told by a master, you will be glad you selected this book.

What does Sophie Eastlake bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Sophie Eastlake performed this story, she didn't read it. Each character had such a specific feel to them. I'm not sure how she managed it, but I most definitely enjoyed the listen.
