Twenty years ago, Claire Maloney was the willful, pampered, tomboyish daughter of the town's most respected family, but that didn't stop her from befriending Roan Sullivan, a fierce, motherless boy who lived in a rusted-out trailer amid junked cars. No one in Dunderry, Georgia - least of all Claire's family - could understand the bond between these two mavericks. But Roan and Claire belonged together...until the dark afternoon when violence and terror overtook them, and Roan disappeared from Claire's life.

Now, two decades later, Claire is adrift, and the Maloneys are still hoping the past can be buried under the rich Southern soil. But Roan Sullivan is about to walk back into their lives....

By turns tender and sexy and heartbreaking and exuberant, A Place to Call Home is an enthralling journey between two hearts - and a deliciously original novel from one of the most imaginative and appealing new voices in Southern fiction.

Listener Opinions

    " This book really fell apart in the second half. The characters (as adults) seemed to suddenly be filled with mysterious silences for no very good reason and were prone to acting like complete idiots just to keep the thin plot going. It's a shame, because the first half showed some promise. Also, the contrast between 10 year old Claire's voice and her 10 year old niece's tortuous dialogue was painful. Did the author suddenly forget how to write about children? If anything, it seemed like the author was passionate about the story of the main characters as children . . . set the book aside for a long time . . . and then later decided to finish it with the story of the characters as adults, minus any real passion for the writing. "

    " This was a very sweet book about a boy and girl and how they were torn apart and came back together as adults. I really loved it! Keep tissue close by, I cried like a baby thru most of it! "

    " This book is a must-read for those of us in the romantic community! I first read this book when I was twelve years old, then I did not realize the significance nor the moral of the story. As I became older I re-read the book and my heart slowly began to break.. This book is touching, heart-felt, and true beyond words.. Deborah Smith, you are the chocolate to hopless romantics' souls. "
