Publisher's Summary

From Sarah M. Eden, the USA Today best-selling author of the Longing for Home series, Love Remains is a new romance novel set in the beloved world of Hope Springs.

For nearly a year, Tavish O'Connor has carried the crushing weight of his family's future on his shoulders. He has taken on the care of his youngest brother, Finbarr, who lost his eyesight in a terrible accident. But the lad needs more than Tavish can provide. Finbarr needs hope.

Cecily Attwater specializes in hope. As a tutor to the newly blind, she has dedicated her life to helping others overcome the obstacles she herself has conquered. Her new assignment in a remote corner of Wyoming proves trickier than usual: Finbarr refuses to learn. To make matters worse, his family - and the other Irish townspeople - are less than thrilled to discover an Englishwoman in their haven.

Cecily's only hope lies in securing the cooperation of her pupil's brother, Tavish, who happens to be her harshest critic and quite possibly the most frustrating man she's ever known.

For Finbarr's sake, Tavish and Cecily forge an uneasy alliance that, as the weeks pass, tiptoes toward something deeper than either dares admit or face, and toward a future they know to be impossible. There can be no hope of a happy outcome for an Irish man and an English woman amongst a people reeling from violence and centuries of hatred between their two homelands.

A truly tender love story

Sarah M. Eden is a talented writer who captures her readers in the first few pages and holds them TIL the last. The characters are so well developed that the reader feels all the varied emotions right along with each one. From heart wrenching sorrow, to giggles, to deep enduring love, Sarah’s stories are an emotional roller coaster. They are filled with believable life challenges showing how diverse individuals respond so differently to the same event. As in real life, Sarah’s characters are deeply affected by the experiences they go through, challenged to give in or rise above the heart ache and tragedy life dishes out the them. Sarah’s stories are truly uplifting and highly recommended as among the very best fiction available!

Great narration

This story continues the journey of Longing For Home. There's so much healing in this book. The narrator does a fabulous job using the 4 required accents, and even gives the characters distinction inside of the accents. She's quite talented!

Wow!

One of the sweetest stories I've ever heard! So beautifully written. Awesome sense of humor. Challenge, heartache, dreams, character, courage and laughter so beautifully intertwined. Highly recommend! The narrator is amazing! How she manages to bring to life so many characters in such a distinct, flawless way I'll never know!

great story! The narration is icing on the top!

Sarah M Eden writes such wonderful books. I loved listening to this book. The narrator does a great job with the various accents and with each character. This can definitely be read as a stand alone book. It makes me want to go back and read Hope Springs again

Wonderful to the last page!

This book did NOT disappoint! I loved Tavish from the very beginning of the Hope Springs series and I'm so happy he got his own story. Cecily is such a strong character yet human and relatable. I could listen to this story over and over again!

Pleasantly pleased

I was a little unsure of purchasing a book I had not heard of the author before, but to my delight it was most enjoyable. Not simply a beautiful complex love story but one with humor, that causes the heart to dance! It is a story with several good lesson of sadness, anger, sorrow but the best lesson of judging others harshly & the strength of the family love and letting love remain! Excellent story and the narrator is a true joy to listen too!

Fabulous story and narration

I am blown away by how much I loved this story! Sarah M Eden absolutely delivers again! Tavish O'Connor, who is a main character in the first two Longing For Home novels, was always a favorite and it was so nice to read his story. It was a beautifully written story and I felt every emotion so deeply. And I have to say the narrator was fantastic! She brought all the characters to life for me. Well done! I would love to read another Longing For Home novel some day!

Left me wanting the story to continue

Sarah M. Eden weaves a great story and Nancy Peterson is a superb reader. This is the first book I've listened to by Ms. Eden and it certainly won't be the last!

The characters were fully developed, the various relationship were believable, and the story line, which is somewhat different, drew me right in. Ms. Peterson did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. You never wondered which character was speaking and the various accents were well done.

A Beautiful Story of How Love Truly Heals All

This is my first story I have read by author Sarah M Eden, but it will not be the last. Ms. Eden has created such a wonderful cast of characters. I just know there's more to tell in the lives of Finbar, Emma, and perhaps, Biddy.

The story begins with a glimpse of the fiercely loyal members of the O'Connor family. It is hinted that they will do anything for family and for their countrymen located in the Montana territory. The Finbar O'Connor appears to have given up on life at the young age of 17 after a fire took his sight. The O'Connors hire a tutor to help him. A Mr. Atwater.

Things only heat up when Mr. Atwater is not a Mister, but a Miss...and she's English.

Nancy Peterson makes this story truly come to life. Her storytelling is soft and captivating. She smoothly transitions from an Irish to an English accent (all while giving the narrator a General American voice). She expertly spins the tale switching from teen to adult to the various mature voices in the book. I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed this performance. Bravo!

I'm looking forward to the rest of this series. I am hoping Ms. Peterson will have the opportunity to narrate them as well.
