Guide Me Home

Guide Me Home is the latest from Kim Vogel Sawyer.  This book contains the tale of Rebekah Hardin, a young woman who has grown up in poverty with her family in the hills of Kentucky.  Rebekah is determined to help her six younger sisters and her mother, who has been in a state of depression ever since her only son's death.  Rebekah needs to find a way to earn some money to pay for a stone to mark her brother's grave.  The only job that Rebekah can find is working as a guide in Mammoth Caves.  The only catch is that Rebekah must attempt to pass herself off as a boy!

University student, Devlin Bale is currently residing with his wealthy parents in Lexington, Kentucky.  He has decided to obtain his land surveyor degree by completing his senior project: to create a chart of the tunnels of the Mammoth Cave system.   You will get to watch a friendship grow as Rebekah assists with Devlin's work in developing a chart of this very dark place under the ground!

You will be surprised to see how God finds a way to capture Devlin's heart and to bring Rebekah and Devlin together in more than just a friendship by the end of this tale!

I received this book from Waterbrook Press in exchange for my unbiased review.
