    by Andrea Renee Cox A legacy is worth protecting Guide Me Home by Kim Vogel SawyerA legacy is something a person works his or her whole life to build up, then hands it over to the next generation as an inheritance.In her latest novel, Kim Vogel Sawyer explores different types of legacies The approach she took was especially creative, since she presented four unique perspectives on the subject It was neat to see how one person can help build up a family s legacy or tear it apart Or how someone who doesn t have children may still create a legacy to leave behind for other folks to enjoy.Though Kim has children and grandchildren, who are a legacy in themselves, her legacy of faith also pours out through each of her novels to everyone blessed to read them It s quite evident that she floods her writing time with prayer, not just for her career as a writer but also for the impact her words will have upon the hearts of her readers Because of this dedication to God s legacy of faith on her life, Kim pens beautiful stories that wrap around the heart and into a per...

    This is my first Kim Vogel Sawyer novel not set in Kansas.There were several aspects I liked about this novel There were four different points of view shared in the book main Character Rebekah, her dissatisfied sister Cissy, cave tour guide Tolly and college student cave mapper Devlin Each voice is unique and through these four character the story unfolds I was pleased that although Rebekah dressed like a man for her job as a tour guide, it was known that she was a female There was no reveal build up in the novel I also enjoyed that each character was ...

    Another great Kim Vogel Sawyer book, as always Although I didn t enjoy this one as much as Waiting for Summer s Return, I still really liked it The characters were so much fun I loved Rebekah s and her family s hill billy way of speaking, it got me smiling several times She and her family are so sweet loved them But, I m pretty sure the worse part about this book was Cissy Rebekah s younger sister She had such a rebellious attitude and she was just awful While I was reading, I found myself thinking about myself because I know I can act similar like Cissy had been acting I m glad things turned around for her and she realized her attitude wasn t right.Tolly is the sweetest man He had such a kind heart I love how protective he was toward Rebekah making sure she didn t do anything inappropriate with Devlin.And speaking of Devlin. he was nice too Ki...

    Follow the lives of Hardin sisters, tame Rebekah and wild Cissy, who are poor hills girls with a rich family heritage of faith in Christ Jesus Add to the story city slicker Devlin with his mapping project and colored guide, Tolly, and there you have the ingredients for a rich story The characters all felt very real, their growth genuine and easy paced Because there were diverse characters, there were also diverse goals and subtle plots woven throughout the story, which I enjoyed I loved the setting too I mean, poor communities and the Mammoth Cave It felt very well represented.Yes, there was romance in this book It wasn t quite a, girl loves lost guy, then guy gets saved so now she can marry him story, but hinted at it Also, Cissy s infatuation with flirting and making plans behind her parent s back made me cringe it was resolved, yes ...

    The story is about Rebekah, the eldest daughter in a family of girls Their only brother Andy died in an accident in the nearby caves, and she s anxious to buy a good quality headstone for his grave, knowing it would please her parents The only job she can find is a guide in the same caves that claimed his life, but it means she ll have to dress and pose as a boy.It s also about her sister Cissy, the second eldest daughter, who is a far restless and discontented soul, seduced by the luxuries and pleasurable lifestyles she reads about in magazines Cissy aspires to escape the hillbilly lifestyle which is all she s ever known, to hit the big city and make the most of her assets.It s interesting how an author s style may skew a reader s attitude It s clearly written in such a way that we re supposed to deplore Cissy s selfishness and cheer for Bek s generous, easily satisfied nature But I can t help noticing that Cissy s attitude is one we re most often urged to take on board in modern internet articles and self help books Follow your dreams, don t settle for what you ve always known, move out of your comfort zone, explore the world as much as you can because you don t know what you re capable of until you try It makes me wonder whether this novel is promoting old fashioned, outdated ways of thought, or if the wholesome, pastoral mindset really does have a lot going for it despite the obv...
