We continue sharing with you some of the titles that other readers have suggested while we wait for January, when our One Read reading panel begins to narrow down the list of books nominated for our community-wide reading program.
Today we bring to you “Calling Me Home,” a story woven between a forbidden love and tragic consequences in 1930s Kentucky and 60 years later a journey by two women travelling across the country. The nominator says: “An unlikely friendship forms between two adults with very different backgrounds. They navigate sensitive subject matter on their way to a funeral.” Whose funeral is it? Why is the younger woman willing to rearrange her plans to accompany her 89-year-old friend with only a day’s notice? Author Julie Kibler catches you into her narrative, telling the story with grace and anticipation.
