Catherine Fane comes home to the Kentucky Hill to bury Annie the woman that raised her. The book begins around two feuding families that are interested only in destroying each other. It is quite a different storyline and not your usual run of the mill. A beautifully written book which I could not put down.
This is the first book I have read by the author and it will definitely NOT be my last!

When I first got this book, I opened it and couldn't put it down. I hooked by the story line and was disappointed when I got to the end of the book because I wanted to carry on reading. Sharon Sala is great author and I would recommend her to anyone.

I first found this book in the library and have taken it out at least four times since then!
The book is an amazing love story, but also has a heartwarming tale about a father searching for the baby he thought to be dead.
It's a really good read and it made me into a fan of the great Sharon Sala!

Sharon Sala is an author that i would buy site unseen, so that even though i really enjoyed the book, her latest efforts had more depth.

Dramatic romance 22 April 2000
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Kentucky hills run red with the flow of blood from the victims of the deadly Blair-Joslin feud. A witch stands aloof as the savagery of the clan warfare leaves devastating results in its wake. Herbalist Annie Fane's life dramatically changes when a dying Fancy Joslin pleads with her to take her infant daughter Catherine away from the violence. Annie agrees to Fancy's deathbed wish. The Blairs set their dogs on Fancy, finally killing her. Her now insane husband, Tanner Blair murders his brothers and severely injures his father for what they did to his wife. Annie and Catherine leave town. They do not return until Catherine comes back to bury her grandmother Annie at Pulpit Rock where most of the massacre occurred years ago.

Though she knows that her ties to Annie are by love not blood, Catherine refuses to allow anyone to denigrate her "grandmother." Her return stirs up the fears of the townsfolk who believe that Catherine is a witch who has come to town to take revenge on the townsfolk who reviled Annie. As someone stalks Catherine, Sheriff Luke DePriest is determined that no one will get hurt, especially the woman he now loves.

THE RETURN is a poignant work of romantic suspense that tugs on the heartstrings of the reader. The lyrical prose gives the audience a feel of a ballad rather than just another suspenseful plot. The lead protagonist is a delightful combination of strong independence and charming vulnerability. Catherine fights for what she believes in even if it seems to her that Don Quixote had better odds of winning. This steamy tale will have fans returning to the bookstores seeking other works by Dinah McCall.

I liked this book 15 Jun. 2000
By K. Lininger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Years ago a girl and a boy from feuding families fall in love. Tragically they are not to be together. The girl gave birth to a baby girl and with her dying breath handed the baby to a "witch" to love and raise as her own. Twenty some odd years later the girl returns to bury her grandma, whom the town claims to be a witch. the girl Catherine takes the town by storm and has a town wake up and face their bigotry and ignorance. A beautiful story.

I cannot believe this book received such bad reviews. 19 July 2001
By B. Kimble - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I thought this book was very good. In fact, it was so good, that I went out and bought other Dinah McCall books. I also love her writings as Sharon Sala. Believe me, if you buy this book, you WON'T be sorry. It is excellent.

Hypocrisy and feudin' in a small town 27 July 2006
By Tracy Vest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Catherine does not remember her parents; she is the by-product of a family feud. Tanner Blair and Fancy Joslin were a modern day Romeo and Juliet who married against their parents' wishes until Fancy brought Catherine to Annie Fane's cabin asking that she take her daughter away from the turmoil. Fancy is murdered by Tanner's family, and after a violent and murderous rage, Tanner disappears and is thought to be dead. Rumored to be a witch, the townspeople were happy to see Annie leave. Though not blood related, Catherine has always thought of her as her grandmother, and has even taken her surname. She returns to her birthplace to bury the only mother figure she has ever known, and her presence in the small mountain town causes an uproar and more accusations of witchcraft.

Sheriff Luke DePriest finds himself falling for the mysterious newcomer who is holed up in Annie's cabin trying to reconcile her past, while he investigates a series of petty crimes where the thief leaves a hand carved wooden figure in place of his loot. When Luke finds that Catherine's life is threatened, he is forced to confront his true feelings for her and trying to put a stop to the Blair-Joslin feud once and for all.

"The Return" is light on the romance but heavy on the love (if that makes sense). The story will tug at your heart and the reader is sure to shed a tear or two while reading this heart wrenching tale.

For me, not as good as Sala's previous two books. 19 Jan. 2010
By J. Kaye Oldner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Catherine, spelled Katherine on the back cover, Fane travels to the hills of Kentucky to bury the woman who raised her as her mother. The hometown folk called her a witch. Catherine wasn't prepared for the hash judgments still in the hearts of the locals, even years later.

Sheriff Luke DePriest is a fairly new resident. He hasn't been poisoned by the long time feud between bloodlines and the attraction is almost immediate between the two. He struggles to keep her safe and his town from turning ugly. Little did anyone know that the hatred had more to do with a lie that began out of jealousy than the blood feud.

This is the third book I've read by Sharon Sala (a.k.a Dinah McCall). THE HEALER was the first, which was really good, followed by THE WARRIOR. With this book, I felt that this story was too much like THE HEALER. The small town, part of the plot, the characters' personalities was close to the same. For that reason, I thought it was just okay. I would have liked it much better if it had stood out from her other books.
