heart of the country review

"Heart of the Country" by Rene Gutteridge & John Ward is a modern tale of a double prodigal child.  Luke is an extremely wealthy second son and Faith is a country girl.  Both have left their families for what they feel is are good reasons.  Luke later is arrested for a white collar crime and Faith immediately leaves him without finding out any information.  Both are a little right and a little wrong.  Both have to go crawling back to their families and ultimately each other to mend fences and reconnect. 
This is a decent book.  It strikes the cord of a Hallmark movie.  It is nice, engaging, and romantic, yet kinda predictable and sappy.  It is a good book to take with you when you can't really get into a story.  A beach read.  I would give it a B-.  I received this book for free from Tyndale Publishing.
