Heart of the Country by Rene Gutteridge
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I watched the DVD "Heart of the Country" before I actually read the book to get a better perspective on the characters and where they were coming from.
Faith is a country girl through and through and Luke is a city boy to the core but together they make a perfect pair. Until one phone call from the police ruins everything, Luke is being questioned about a ponzi scheme in his business.
Faith is a runner, always has been, she ran away from home when her mother died and now she is running from Luke but the only place left to go is home, and to her estranged family and community.
Luke is much like Faith. He insisted on having his inheritance early, to invest in his own business instead of continuing in the family business his father and brother have worked for decades to secure. Now both are having to turn to their families they deserted and try to pick up the pieces of their lives.
I really enjoyed both the movie and the book. I do wish there was a happy ending for Lee though.
A nice, quick and easy read. Watching the movie was great as I got to see what the characters actually looked like.
I received this book free from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed here are my own.
