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?

    I wasn't too interested by this book at the beginning. However by the end, I was crying. It was a nice read with some well written characters. I did enjoy the way the author set the scenes with such details to help you truly imagine the places described.

    Faith and Luke, a young married couple living the high life, completely fall apart when Luke is arrested on fraud charges. Faith runs home, a place she hasn’t been in ten years, and has to face her sister, Olivia, and her father and deal with the death of her mother, Catherine, ten years prior.

    Luke, the younger son, felt he has always been looked down upon by his older brother and father. He left the family business but when he was arrested on fraud charges, he has to come crawling back to his family asking for forgiveness.

    This story is an interesting take on the story of the Prodigal Son and the forgiveness necessary to restore families and lives. Make sure to have tissues handy as several times, I had to wipe tears from my eyes.

    Each chapter was written from the perspective of either Faith, Luke, Olivia, or Catherine. Although this style can be confusing, the authors have done an excellent job of bringing you into the story and emotionally connecting you with each of the characters right away.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the story and would highly recommend this book to others.

    This novel follows the early years of the marriage of the main characters, Faith and Luke. As a socialite and a successful businessman, they live a charmed life. However, when their world comes crashing down and Luke is arrested, Faith fleas back to her childhood home in the country to sort out her life.

    I did feel that the back-story woven into the narrative was hard to follow at first. But other than that, I enjoyed this book. I would recommend it for someone looking for a unique Christian novel.

    Faith is a country girl turned socialite who seems to have it all. When her husband is accused of a crime, she runs back home to visit her father and sister.

    I thought the book was okay but the characters seemed flat. The story is mostly told from 3 viewpoints- Faith, her husband Luke and her sister Olivia. I had seen the movie, which I disliked, and the book is slightly better, but not a favorite. I like the author's other books but I'm not a fan of this one.

    I thought Heart of the Country aS an emotional story. The characters seemed real with real issues to overcome. Each chapter was in a different character's point of view. Which I found to be confusing at first. Once I got used to it, the rest of the novel flowed well. 4 stars
