Heart of the Country By: Rene Gutteridge

Heart of the Country By Rene Gutteridge, based on the screenplay by John Ward

Heart of the Country is a modern retelling of the prodigal son, Faith and Luke have been living the fairytale life, Faith from a small southern town has gone from country farm girl to being a member of the Carraway family, a well to-do family living the high life in New York. When Luke gets in trouble with the law Faith has no idea how to respond and heads home after ten years of being out of contact.

Luke finds himself alone and struggling and without Faith finds himself turning back to his own family that had also been separated for a time. This book is a story of forgiveness and redemption and a reminder that we have a Father that is always awaiting for us with open arms.

The story was good and I will be interested to see the movie; however, I struggled with being able to connect to some of the characters and to understand their motives behind things. I feel there could have been more character development on a personal level but overall I really enjoyed this story.

I received this book complimentary from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
