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 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 debutish about them, [...]

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

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 past, about her [...]

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 shou [...]

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 Ame [...]

Oh My heart still breaks for Isabel and Robert

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, Texa [...]

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, incredibly dul [...]

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 short and nice Hopefu [...]

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, and , 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 from exploring a bit the r [...]

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 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 recommend this wonder [...]

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 And the en [...]

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 weaves [...]

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 has [...]

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 that I will remember from this story Racial affairs, relationships, and friendship were all explored in this story T [...]

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 author [...]

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 towards couples [...]

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 seeking answers [...]
