“Heart of the Country” by Rene Gutteridge and John Ward, book review
Faith and Luke are living the fairy tale life. They live in New York City where Luke works in the family financial business. He grew up a privileged life. Faith grew up in South Carolina country, and came to New York to attend Julliard. Her mother died when she was young, and while her father tried to raise his daughters, they always missed her.
But when Luke runs into a difficult time at work, Faith just leaves. She drives to her father’s farm, where she is warmly welcomed by her father, but receives a cool reception from her younger sister, who has been caring for her father for years. But as Faith tries to heal, they discover that her father is very ill, in fact has terminal cancer.
This contemporary fiction book was well written and the characters were well developed. The cover boast that the book has been made into a movie, and I think that it would actually be better as a movie. I did enjoy it, and it was an easy read.
