“Inary Monteith’s life is at a crossroads. After a stolen night with her close friend Alex, she’s just broken his heart by telling him it was all a terrible mistake. Then she has to rush home from London to the Scottish Highlands when her little sister’s illness suddenly worsens – and in returning she must confront the painful memories she has been trying so hard to escape.
Back home, things become more complicated than she could ever have imagined. There’s her sister’s illness, her hostile brother, a smug ex she never wants to see again and her conflicted feelings about Alex in London and a handsome American she meets in Glen Avich. On top of that, she mysteriously loses her voice but regains a strange gift from her childhood – a sixth sense that runs in her family. And when a voice from the past keeps repeating, ‘Take me home’, she discovers a mystery that she knows she must unlock to set herself free.
Take Me Home is a beautiful story of love, loss, discovering one’s true abilities and, above all, never forgetting who you really are.”
Firstly I’d like to thank the publisher for sending me this eBook to read and give an honest review. I’m a big fan of Daniela’s writing (reviews here) and I had heard wonderful things about this book so I was very much looking forward to getting started.
The prologue gave me chills (the first of many whilst reading the book) as I learned about the moment Inary realised she had a gift. There were also hints of something unpleasant in her past which really intrigued me and I couldn’t wait to find out what it was.
A night of passion caused Inary some confusion and unfortunately that was immediately followed by some bad news which, understandably, mixed her life up even more. Reading Alex’s point of view was lovely but a little bit heartbreaking at the same time because it was only then that I realised the extent of his feelings towards Inary.
After an extremely sad scene of loss which had me filling up with tears, Inary discovered that she had lost something else – this was a fascinating part of the storyline for me, I was just so interested to see how she would cope and how it would affect her life. The loss also opened up a strange opportunity for her which led to plenty more eerie moments and Mary’s story (an incredibly addictive tale that captivated me as much as it did Inary).
The atmospheric writing style beautifully captured each situation and made me feel what the characters were feeling. Speaking of the characters, they were so likeable that I felt personally connected to each of them.
This was a beautiful and touching story with a twist of spiritual intrigue!
