Re headed for a gathering of the utmost importance and that the history of Isabelle's first and greatest love just might help Dorrie find her own wayWith tenderness and searing emotion Calling Me Home illuminates the hardships passions and dreams that link women across race generations and time. I wanted a lot of things I wanted elouent 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 myselfThis 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 forbidden love Robert The language is straightforward but flat If I had to guess the reading level I d say middle school at the most No big words no complex sentence structure And it has what I call a precious southern feel to it I can just hear the people talking painfully slow and there s something oh golly oh shucks about the book And the characters act like they re saying something profound when really it s trite More wants I wanted Dorrie to be edgy or uirky or intelligent I wanted Isabelle to do all the talking I spent a lot of time wishing Dorrie would shut up so I could get back to Isabelle s GOOD story Dorrie was bland city and so stereotyped Single mom doesn t realize that her man is good and then of course her old buddy teaches her that he is Single mom s teenage son gives her grief Blah blah blah I couldn t have cared less about Dorrie s problems When Isabelle finished telling her story I wanted the book to end Stop while you re ahead Instead no Dorrie had to finish her boring story which ended with Hallmark sap spilling all over the place And she really drew it out which was torturous 30 or pages too many Every time I finished a chapter it was always tied up nicely and it felt like the end So I d sigh in relief and think thank God that s over only to turn the page and find a new chapter It was so anti climactic and it neutralized some of the rawness that Isabelle s story exposed Mostly everyone gave this book a rave review and talked about what a great relationship Isabelle and Dorrie had As usual I m the odd person out I observed their relationship stoically their story just didn t grab me I kept wincing The idea of a road trip with two people who are so different sounds good on paper but their trip is actually boring I didn t think the characters interacted with any umph And there was NO interesting dialogue Zero I was underwhelmedAnother want I wanted Robert to be developed I didn t get a feel for why he was attracted to Isabelle Just didn t buy that he suddenly loved her She gets a crush he ignores her for a while and then poof he loves her Huh And he disappears from the story for too long I craved interaction A final want I wanted to hear Robert s story I know that structurally with the author giving alternate chapters to Dorrie and Isabelle it wasn t possible to give Robert s point of view how could Isabelle for example know what Robert was thinking So actually I wanted a different book I wanted it to be all about Isabelle and Robert one chapter told from Isabelle s point of view one chapter told from Robert s point of view and so on Or the whole book could have been Isabelle telling her story Let s please just ditch DorrieOkay I m always so critical but really there are things I liked about the book Isabelle s love story is heart wrenching and beautiful and the author did a great job of conveying how Isabelle felt I was invested in her I was rooting for her all the way The pace was fine and the language though simple was straightforward The plot moved right along there weren t any fillers or annoying asides Isabelle s story has several surprises most of them bad which made it an intense and suspenseful read at times The ultimate uestion Did I care enough to want to find out what happened to Isabelle Absolutely I give this one a solid 3
