Guide Me Home, by Kim Vogel Sawyer, book review
Rebekah is just trying to hold her family together, after her brother wonders into Mammoth Cave and dies. To ease her mother’s grief, she gets a job at the cave to earn money for a grave stone. But the only job is a cave guide, so she dressed like a boy and gets the job.
Devlin Bale convinces his college administrator father to allow him to journey to Mammoth Cave to draw cave. Devlin hopes that by doing this, it will give his father a political advantage as he runs for office. In the search for other caves in the area, he discovers that many people have caves an some open into the large main cave. He tries to convince locals that they should sell their land to the government and move to a new place, to better themselves. This is met with a lot of resistance, as Devlin does not understand the strong ties these folks have with the land.
I enjoyed this story and the characters. There was a lot of history and adventure. There is a little romance through in, but to too much, so guys will enjoy this book as there is a lot of detail about the cave and surrounding areas.
