Where the Heart Takes You by Virginia WiseFirst I was happy to learn of Virginia Wise’s book Where the Heart Takes You at a writers’ conference I attended late summer I enjoyed her novel very much recommend it and look forward to also reading the next in the Amish New World seriesWhen I read a novel and I sense the characters and the story line throughout my day I know I have a good one Such is the case with Where the Heart Takes You I loved that author Virginia Wise introduced us to the main characters in a way that we came to know them well enough to almost anticipate their next actions and reactions similar to when we know what a friend or family member will do or not—sometimes before they know that truth themselves I liked that not only did I feel as if I knew the main characters but the SECONDARY characters too remained true to the personalities originally portrayed Where the Heart Takes You is not predictable but I was hopeful that the love story would bear out with the ending that I wanted I must admit I was tempted several times to read ahead I didn’t The ending and the scenes that led to the close were worth the wait I can only tell you I was not disappointedWhere the Heart Takes You is not only a story of romance but also gives us a peek into the family type commitment seen among neighbors which was shown to be unusually strong and bears out stories of Amish culture I have heard and read of before—a refreshing experienceI love Christian based novels as I find the good ones are nice to pass along to friends whether they are in the faith or not Since people just love a good read faith based novels—can in a subtle way—share the message of Jesus Christ’s love and entertain at the same timeDeborah Tompkins JohnsonAuthor of How Did They Do That – Career Highlights Triumphs and Challenges
