    Life in Rural Indiana in an Inspiring Book

    "Lead Me Home (What if all were looking for is right where we are?)" by author Amy K. Sorrels is a 385 page contemporary Christian novel. This paperback is published by Tyndale House Publishers and is the first book I have read by author Sorrells.

    The storyline is well thought and planned. It is organized and flows smoothly making it easy to understand. Her characters are realistic and seem like people you know from a small rural area. They have personality and some are so lovable while others are such bad people. Author Sorrels has done an excellent job with her description of the scenery. I could almost feel the sunshine on my face in the field. Her dialogue seemed natural and not forced. I liked her writing style.

    This is the tale of Reverend James Horton, a widower in the fictional town of Sycamore, Indiana. His wife died in a tragic car accident leaving him a single dad to his daughter, Shelby. While he struggles with a teenage daughter his church struggles to keep its congregation. The people were leaving the small country church for a larger, modern one, a mega church. He is tired, questioning God, and needs someone to help him.

    It is also the story of hIs daughter, Shelby and Noble Burden. Noble's father has left the family and divorced his mother. He is now devoting his life to caring for his special needs brother and mother. He also helps her with their dairy business. This puts his music dreams on hold. Topics of small towns, small churches, trusting God, family values and loyalty are broached in this well written book. It touches on dreams, special needs, priorities, God's purpose and plan for our lives.

    This is a story from the heartland that has a lot of heart. It reveals much about the emotional side of farm life and its will to survive. The work day is long and hard. It is an even paced book but hard to put down. I wanted to know what happened to my new bunch of friends. This is at times a gritty, true look at life not the fairytale that everyone wants to believe. The small church and small farmer fight for survival. They must persevere to make it.

    I would definitely recommend this thought provoking novel. Any Christian certainly would enjoy this. It has substance to it that makes you think about it long after you have put it down. There are many biblically inspirational messages in it. This would be a great book for a group to discuss. Author Sorrels ha seven included discussion questions at the end of the book. This is perfect for a small group or book club. I rated it 4 out of 5 stars. I received a copy of this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    Amazing Read

    I loved how the honest the author was in writing this book. These are hard subjects, loss, grief, and despair in which she did an amazing job. Loved the bible verses throughout this book.

    For anyone who thinks that their pastor is above reproach or sits on a pedestal this is an eye opening book. Pastors are God's helpers but feel the same pain that we all do. We are all God's children and need guidance.

    This is a very powerful read that I would recommend.

    I recieved this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review.

    This was a story that truly warmed my heart. The characters were so real, people I could see myself being friends with, caring about and holding my breath when they were in peril. Their problems were real and believable. Some I could identify with, some I knew others had gone through in real life. All these factors make for a good book that I found hard to put down, and only did when my eyes wouldn't stay open any longer at night.

    Noble and Shelby both had lost parents, his to his father leaving the family and divorcing his mother, and hers to an accident that killed her mother. This affected their lives in numerous ways. Shelby tried to change her life to be totally different from where it was before before her mother died. Noble took on the job of looking after his older brother with special needs, and taking care of his mother and their dairy farm. And Shelby's dad was the pastor of the small community church that was slowly dying and soon to be closed.

    There were some great life lessons as well hidden among this writer's text. Good scripture the characters remembered at different times from learning and reading the Bible. And words from songs and hymns that I found myself singing along to as I read the words. One of my favorites, Precious Lord Lead Me Home.

    This is a book that I could easily find myself reading a second or even third time. I donated it to my church library and will be recommending it to others as well as checking it out of the library in the future to read once again.

    I received this book from the publisher through Bookfun for my honest review, which I have given.

    Lead Me Home by Amy K Sorrells is a wonderful book...a story of grace amidst the storms of life, a story of endings that might be beginnings, a story not soon forgotten. Sorrells has given readers characters that are realistic and evocative...they could be one's neighbors, one's friends. James, a recently widowed pastor, has to face the reality that his church's days are numbered. He is a man who seems to have lost his way and his soul is shadowed by a darkness he cannot shake. Shelby, devasted by her mother's death, is pulling away from those who love her and making unwise choices. Noble is their neighbor who has a dream but way too many responsibilities to follow it. The story, even though it flows well, is not an easy read as the author shows the reality and harshness of life in a farming community, the effects of nature on the lives of those dependent on the land for a living. "Everything beautiful at a distance looks pretty ugly up close." Thought provoking questions abound...where was God when things happened? What did I do wrong? How do I know if I am living out God's plan? Do I follow my dream or let it die? With an unexpected crisis, the author reminds readers that grace is simply to be accepted and that the Church is not made of wood and cement. Readers will think about this story for a long time as it seems to seep into the soul as the sadness and despair seeped into the lives of the characters portrayed in this book.

    I found the premise of this story very familiar, having grown up in the country, surrounded by small farms and small churches. Life was tough and the farm work long and arduous. Nonetheless, farmers and their families persevered through numerous hard times. I loved the realism portrayed in Lead Me Home. This book is honest, earthy and not sugarcoated. It represents what farm families did with what they had.

    The characters are depicted as typical, rural people. Every type of individual is portrayed authentically, and there were some real "characters!" The Burden family is a family to be cherished for their honest and realistic presence. Family loyalty is presented in a very sensitive, loving and admirable approach.

    Reverend James Horton lost his wife in a tragic auto accident, and was left to single-handedly raise his daughter, Shelby. Teenage issues leave James shaking his head and wondering what he could do better. At the same time his congregation has dwindled down to a handful of congregants, and the future of his church is hanging in the balance.

    I enjoyed this down-t0-earth, honest book even though at times it moved somewhat slowly. At times I wondered when the pace would pick up. I look back now and realize how much I enjoyed that pace that represents the issues in the book. Relax with a copy of this book. It's a wonderful taste of reality.
