In Guide Me Home, Kim Vogel Sawyer’s latest novel, she has written another lovely “gentle story of hope” romance with well-developed characters and plot that you can get lost in. Rebecca Hardin and her family live a hand-to-mouth existence on a farm that has been in her family for generations in the hills of southern Kentucky. Devlin Bale is a cartography student at the University of Kentucky. His father teaches there but plans to run for the Senate. Both Devlin and Rebecca want to help their families
Two more different people and families would be hard to find. Yet, Rebecca and Devlin develop a respect and concern for each other as they spend hours together in the cave while she is the assistant to Tolly, the experienced guide who leads Devlin’s tours. Rebecca also introduces him to the families surrounding the cave area, including her own.
God has important truths to teach both of these characters on their journeys, and we know He will “guide them home.”
For history buffs, Kim has done a great deal of research on the Mammoth Cave area and weaves it into the story in a very enjoyable way. I have lived in Kentucky most of my life, and found the information she shares in this book fascinating. I bet you will, too. Guide me Home is available in both print and kindle.
