Product Description

Faith and Luke Carraway have it all. Faith is a beautiful singer turned socialite while Luke is an up-and-coming businessman. After taking his inheritance from his father's stable, lucrative business to invest in a successful hedge fund with the Michov Brothers, he's on the fast track as a rising young executive, and Faith is settling comfortably into her role as his wife.

When rumors of the Michovs' involvement in a Ponzi scheme reach Faith, she turns to Luke for confirmation, and he assures her that all is well. But when Luke is arrested, Faith can't understand why he would lie to her, and she runs home to the farm and the family she turned her back on years ago. Meanwhile, Luke is forced to turn to his own family for help as he desperately tries to untangle himself from his mistakes. Can two prodigals return to families they abandoned?

Publisher's Description

Faith and Luke Carraday have it all. Faith is a beautiful singer turned socialite while Luke is an up-and-coming businessman. After taking his inheritance from his father’s stable, lucrative business to invest in a successful hedge fund with the Michov Brothers, he’s on the fast track as a rising young executive, and Faith is settling comfortably into her role as his wife.

When rumors of the Michovs’ involvement in a Ponzi scheme reach Faith, she turns to Luke for confirmation, and he assures her that all is well. But when Luke is arrested, Faith can’t understand why he would lie to her, and she runs home to the farm and the family she turned her back on years ago. Meanwhile, Luke is forced to turn to his own family for help as he desperately tries to untangle himself from his mistakes. Can two prodigals return to families they abandoned, and will those families find the grace to forgive and forget? Will a marriage survive betrayal when there is nowhere to run but home?

    Sweet Story

    Heart of the Country is a sweet book that made for a good one-time read. The story is sweet, and I enjoyed reading this prodigal story. However, it seemed to be missing something (though I'm not quite sure what!). This is a novelization of a movie/screenplay, so perhaps that type of novel just isn't for me. Overall, though, it's a good book, and I'm glad I read it. [3 stars]

    Once I got through the first few chapters I was hooked and had to know what happened when Faith went back home to her family. Each chapter was written from a different person's point of view, Faith, her sister Olivia, Faith's husband Luke, her mom, Catherine and her dad, Calvin. I think trying to figure out who Catherine was is what made me hesitant to like the book but once I figured out that she was Faith's dead mother I was able to understand and enjoy the book.

    At first I didn't think I'd like this as each chapter is from a different character but once I got past the first 3 or 4 chapters I was hooked. Faith left her family 10 years before when her mother died. She met Luke and they had a great marriage and business. Then Luke is arrested and Faith leaves New York to return to the family home. Her sister Olivia has taken care of their dad since Faith left. Faith's return causes some family issues. This is a good story of family issues, losing then finding one's way back and most of all faith in God and Jesus.

    Heart of the Country is the second book I read by Rene Gutteridge and I really enjoy her books because they are not only entertaining, but the plots have several twists to keep you reading. The characters seemed so life-like and the emotions that the characters had were easily relatable to the emotions that people experience in life. The story is about a married couple: Luke and Faith who live a comfortable life. Luke is a businessman who has an inheritance that he invests in a hedge fund with the Michov Brothers. Faith is a singer who seems to enjoy married life and devotes her time to being Lukes wife. However, life turns upside down for them when the Michov Brothers are rumored to be involved with a Ponzi scheme that also involves Luke. Faith questions her husband and is told that all is ok but then is later arrested by the police causing Faith to feel betrayed. After Lukes arrest, Faith returns to her home and family who she abandoned years ago as Luke reaches out to his own family for help. However, both Faith and Luke have hurt their families from their actions and now that they need them, will they be forgiven and welcomed back? I found this to be a heart-warming story that reminded me of the story of the Prodigal Son in the Bible. I also look forward to other books written by this author.
