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.

Will read anything within reason.
This reminded me of a story in an old fashioned woman's magazine. The story of the family held my attention and some parts were actually quite moving. I could have lived without the supernatural element but it all concluded satisfactorily so no complaints.
Overall this was a pleasant and undemanding listen.
Might be OK for teens, or for someone who likes romantic dross
Made it half the length with twice the content
Truly awful range of accents, the only one that sounded genuine was the London flatmate
Disappointed by the lack of plot and the teenage love story, felt no connection to the characters at all
Books for Fun and Life
The story is very slow to get anywhere interesting and the first half is just so miserable I nearly aborted listening to it.
I'm afraid the rather thickened Scottish accent also got on my nerves. It was like being strangled by the physical manifestation of an accent! It needed toning down.
I'd not bother with other books by this author based on this book.
engaging from the early pages, with some surprises.Well worth the time to listen. I could not wait for the next opportunity to listen.
I was driving on my own to the south of FRance when I started to listen to this book. I was impressed by the style of writing and the way the story unfold.
