Book Review: Called Home

26 Sep

Emma Benson’s view of life was crafted by the death of her brother as a child, abandonment by her father and later, the man she trusted she would marry, until David Schlosser-back in town after years in New York writing best-selling novels-threatens her neatly tended life. Romance blooms. Emma and David eventually persevere in the face of tragedy, refusing to leave their dreams behind.


Gloria Schumann‘s love of reading romance novels brought her to a love of writing them. Keen observation of the human condition is her favorite pastime. A highly developed interest in relationships what makes them work are central in her writing. Gloria resides in Austin, TX with her husband and three children.

My Impressions:

Called Home by Gloria Schumann is a contemporary romance novel with hints of mystery and suspense.  Emma and David are both back in their home town — Emma to help her mom out on the family farm and David to recapture the small town life he once had.  From the very start, they share a stormy relationship. Emma is determined to have nothing to do with David; David is determined to win Emma’s heart.  The story also involves moments of danger — a tornado, a violent assault on Emma and mysterious goings on at Emma’s home.  But of course true love wins out. The novel is a clean read with no adult language or scenes.  If you like light, clean, contemporary romance, you should check out Called Home.
