Guide Me Home by Kim Vogel Sawyer
Another thing I really love is historical fiction and when it comes to writing in this genre, this author does her research. She always includes a note to readers at the end of each book that tells the true facts that the book was based on. This is a huge perk for a history buff like myself. Many times after reading the facts I am drawn to do a little research for myself and learn as much as I can about the time period that I just read about.
In Guide Me Home you will read of Rebekah Hardin and how she fights for her family after tragedy hits. She plans to help her parents and six siblings honor her brother's memory and alleviate their poverty by working as a guide in the dangerous cave system. Kentucky's renowned Mammoth Cave presents profitable opportunities for hardworking capable men. But Rebekah is determined and if it means presenting herself and a himself, then she's up for the job.
Under the wing of experienced guide Tolly Sanford. "Reb" begins to learn the complexities of the cave. The two are joined by an aspiring young cartographer, Devlin Bale. The university student has traveled to the hill country to map tunnels - not to fall for a girl in disguise.
Can the God who designed miles of underground astonishment shape Devlin's ambitious plans and free Reb from the wait of her past?
