    1. 5+ StarsCalling Me Home is an unforgettable book. It’s tragically beautiful, heart wrenching and devastating to read. Forbidden love at it’s finest.This was a book that completely flew under my radar. I’m so happy a friend recommended it to me and I picked it up. Even though it wasn’t an easy read, it was worth it. I listened to this book on audio and the narrators did a fantastic job. They captured Isabelle and Dorrie perfectly. I listened to the last little bit on my way to work yester [...]

    2. 5 stars!!!One of my bookish resolutions for the year was to start reading more books that weren’t just pure romance and seeing a couple of friends who loved this particular book motivated me to finally pick it up. Without a doubt, this is a book that will be on my best books read in 2015 list. The content and sensitive topics explored were extremely thought-provoking, the heartbreaking forbidden romance both shattered my heart and mended it, and the historical backdrop of the book made the sto [...]

    3. 5 Stars!!“Calling me Home” was one of the best books I’ve read this year and definitely one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s a complex story that will impress you in so many ways. It’s a historical romance and it also is a women’s fiction/civil rights/women’s rights as well. It’s a beautiful, tragic story about love, life, family, loyalty, grief, racial and sexual discrimination, segregation and so much more. It’s also an educational story, a story that will open your e [...]

    4. **5++" EXTRAORDINARY " STARS** For anyone who's ever felt protective of a book, wished they could erase a story from their memory and/ or read the same novel numerous time, I'd just like to say, "I'm sorry for ever judging you. I get it now."I LOVE this book so much, I'm mad at it. Yes, you read that correctly. I'm angry with the author (in the most playful way possible) for turning me into such an annoying,swoony, sappy girlie- girl. I cried so heavily at one point, I started hyperventilating. [...]

    5. Update: A good friend is going to read this I'm excited, 'again'!!!! I cried like a baby!!! If this is not an EMOTIONAL booken I don't know what is. I wish Julie Kibler would write another book.(waiting Julie!!)Don't even try to guess the ending Of 'who' the ladies are traveling to see and why. You'll won't figure it out. I promise.If a reader does not get teary-eye 'at least' one time while reading this GEM of a STORY THEN their heart is made of stone!5++++++++I'm too emotional to write a rev [...]

    7. I had to have a chuckle when I read the subject line of this book, that I only just realised is being made into a movie, on IMBD. 'An elderly lady asks her hairdresser to drive her to a funeral in Texas'. It's so much more than that!Calling Me Home tells us the heart breaking and wonderful story of Isabelle and Dorrie, and of the tragic forbidden love in the late 1930's. An amazing debut novel by Julie Kibler. It's funny when the book world talks of 'debuts' as so often there is nothing 'debutis [...]

    8. 1/16/15 Kindle Daily deal! I paid $14.00 a week ago's now $1.99! amazon/gp/product/B0084.5 Heart-wrenching, Unfair Stars!Calling Me Home was a beautiful, emotionally charged, all-consuming story of love and loss. On my quest for something emotional that would tug at my heart strings (yes, I love a book hangover that leaves a gaping hole in my chest-don't judge), I saw a review from a friend that told me this would deliver in spades. EpicallyCalling Me Home tells the story, in both past and prese [...]

    9. 6 **Hands down the best book I've read in 2014** Stars!!!!I'm sorry but 5 stars doesn't do this book justice!!!“Words can not describe the level of emotion I'm feeling right nowis book was amazing!!"**Review to Come**

    10. I wanted a lot of things. I wanted eloquent, sophisticated language. I wanted fleshy characters. I wanted witty or wise dialogue. I wanted cool sentences to highlight. I wanted to be wowed. Lower my expectations, I tell myself.This is a story about a young black hairdresser, Dorrie, who is driving an old white woman, Isabelle, to a mysterious funeral far away. There’s a chapter for each of them, back and forth. Dorrie talks about what’s happening in her life now; Isabelle tells about her pas [...]

    11. This story is about a hair stylist in her thirties named Dorrie, who is driving her almost ninety year old good friend and client Isabelle to a mystery funeral several states away. While on this long road trip, Isabelle tells Dorrie about her life in 1939, and her forbidden love story with Robert Prewitt, the black son of her family's housekeeper. The story then alternates between Dorrie's present day pov and Isabelle's past pov.So, I was fully expecting to love this book, everything about it sh [...]

    12. What a pleasant surprise this book was. It's the kind of book that makes me miss working in a bookstore because it would be such an easy recommendation to make to customers. It's good, engaging and well-written, and it's got a clear audience who will eat it up. One part The Help, one part Water for Elephants, this compelling debut novel is the story of two women travelling from Arlington to Cincinnati for a funeral. Isabelle is 89 and unable to make the trip alone so she asks Dorrie, her African [...]

    13. Review posted 5/1/15.I wanted to climb the highest hill I could find to shout until our world saw it's error.This story of forbidden love in 1930s Kentucky left me speechless. a story that intricately entwines the past with the present.Heartbreakingly Beautiful, CompellingEighty-nine-year-old Isabelle McAllister has a favor to ask her hairdresser Dorrie Curtis. It's a big one. Isabelle wants Dorrie, a black single mom in her thirties, to drop everything to drive her from her home in Arlington, T [...]

    14. The best adjective to describe Kibler's effort is "soapy". One improbable moment follows another in a failed attempt to keep you imagining these cardboard sticks are people. If you imagine that in the late 1930's and early 1940's, a 16 year old white girl living in Kentucky could be oblivious to the peril in which her flirtation with a black man would place him, maybe you can swing with this plot. My own take is that "Miss Isabelle" (if she were a credible character) would be either crazy, incre [...]

    15. Written January 27, 20155 Stars - An epic heart wrenching beautiful novel. - A without questions fantastic “I'll never forget it” story.I need time to put myself together. — That was a week ago and it has been a struggle to go back on the memory-line about this book. I don't think I have become so emotionally moved by a book since I read Jojo Moyes' novel, Me Before You. All tissues were used and I'm still, a week later, easily moved to tears thinking about this story. This will be quite " [...]

    16. I never purposely choose books that make be cry. Crying is not a kink of mine. This one snuck up on me with stealth via my friend Ingela. Oh I knew from the blurb that there was a possibility but I decided to join in the read anyway.Did I cry? – OH YES LOTS. Am I angry? – OH YES at the bigotry, racism dealt with in the story. Angrier, more and more, that we still have to deal with this even in our day and age both within us and in the world we live in. I liked that Kibler did not shy away fr [...]

    17. What a beautifully heartbreaking story! I have had this one on my to-read shelf for awhile. I actually started it and gave up, thinking I have a pile of books I'd most likely enjoy much more than this one. Then as I pushed it aside, I received a little nudge from a friend to read it now (demanding, I know!). But I have to admit, she was right, and I did, indeed, love it. In fact, I am pleasantly surprised and pleased how much emotion I felt for the characters and their stories. I highly recomme [...]

    18. My ThoughtsNot many stories make me cry, but the ending of this one sure did. The relationship between Dorrie and Isabelle was special because they simply liked each other for who they were, without concern for skin color or age What a bond between these two women!I loved the way the author unfolded the story of Isabelle’s past in between chapters of Dorrie’s current life challenges. My heart ached for Isabelle’s lost love. I rooted for Dorrie to find peace with her struggles and worries. [...]

    19. You might read reviews of Julie Kibler's debut novel that compare it to The Help or even To Kill a Mockingbird. And while Kibler's story certainly contains a healthy dose of racism and conflict, the heart of the book is a love story--a tragic tale of forbidden love and the consequences that love carries with it throughout generations. While it seems redundant to summarize the book here, I will say that Isabelle's story is one that grasps you from the first chapter and won't let you go. Kibler we [...]

    20. Calling Me Home by Julie KiblerI loved this book, it was such a great story. When I had to put it down I could not wait to get back to it. You know, when you are reading something that you wish the book would not end. when you have only a quarter of the book left. The time period shifts back and forth from the 1930's to the present day. Isabelle who is white asks her African american hair stylist named Dorrie to drive her to a funereal from Kentucky to Ohio.Isabelle is in her nineties and Dorrie [...]

    21. 3.5 StarsCalling Me Home by Julie Kibler is a beautiful debut Novel telling the story of a forbidden love in 1930s Kentucky with a modern-day friendship.Eighty nine year old Isabelle McAllister has a favour to ask her hairdresser Dorrie Curtis. It's a big one. Isabelle wants Dorrie, a black single mom in her thirties, to drop everything to drive her from her home in Arlington, Texas, to a funeral in Cincinnati. With no clear explanation why and they must leave the following day. Dorrie is plague [...]

    22. 3.5 This was a heartfelt, poignant story about a love across the color divide in the 1930's, when this was not something that was accepted. Really loved the relationships in this novel, Isie being so much older but a good friend to Dorrie all the same. Together they brought closure and a new way of looking at the problems they needed to solve. These are the two characters with a few more that I will remember from this story. Racial affairs, relationships, and friendship were all explored in this [...]

    23. Julie Kibler's CALLING ME HOME, a poignant, debut novel; a winner out of the gate, filled with careful description and woven skillfully! A vivid, engaging first book with strong characters, dramatic storytelling, which should establish Julie Kibleras a strong novelist. She most definitely possesses a gift of telling a tragic story, in an entertaining way with an inspiring takeaway of friendship and love. (She has just been added to my favorite author list, and so look forward to following this a [...]

    24. I loved this book! Julie Kibler is an amazing first time novelist! I hope she is busy writing her next book, because I can't wait to read it! I hesitated to spend $12 on a kindle book, but it was so worth it! I have to say the first third of the book was a little slow, but midway through, I couldn't put it down. I felt attached to Dorrie, & especially Isabelle. I was drawn to this book, after being in an interracial relationship myself, years ago. I had a taste of how hurtful people can be t [...]

    25. "It's an irony that young people mostly see things as black and white . . . All or nothing. Sometimes, in spite of their enthusiasm for embracing change, it takes years of experience before they truly see the whole picture." And sometimes it takes a lifetime to find the right person (a kindred spirit, a true and rare friend) in which to share the secrets never before spoken. Two women. One relatively young, the other considerably aged. One with ebony hair and skin, the other whitish-blue. Both s [...]

    26. All the cool kids have been reading this one and guess what?? It's on sale for 1.99 today! Jan. 16th.Mine!!!!!

    27. Kada devedesetogodišnja Isabelle zamoli svoju frizerku Dorrie da je odvede na pogreb u Cincinnati, niti jedna od njih ne sluti da će im to dugo putovanje promijeniti živote. Roman je koncipiran tako da u jednom poglavlju pratimo priču iz 30ih godina XX stoljeća, priču o Isabellinoj mladosti i životu, dok u narednom poglavlju pratimo sadašnjost - njihovo putovanje i probleme sa kojima se Dorrie suočava daleko od kuće. Roman tako slikovito opisuje te 30e godine kada je rasna diskriminaci [...]
