Lead Me Home Book Review

About the Book
A compelling novel of truth and a search for identity by bestselling author Stacy Hawkins Adams.

Stacy Hawkins Adams first touched on love and belief with her Jubilant Soul series. Coming Home, the first novel in her Winds of Change series, let her look deeper into the same themes.

Now, in Lead Me Home, the second in the Winds of Change series, Shiloh Griffin has no identity outside of her roles as pastor's wife and mom. Some days that is enough … but not always. Particularly when partnered with the always confident, always gracious Jade Smith on a church ministry project. Rather than shying away from God in her nervousness, Shiloh clings to him, seeking every day to redeem herself.

When Shiloh begins mentoring Monica, a fifteen-year-old member of the church, she confronts an issue she has been praying for years to forget. If she turns away, this teen's life-and her soul-could be in jeopardy. If she decides to stand up and help, she knows she's the one who risks losing everything.(Goodreads)

My Review
I fell in love with the cover of this book and the main story line before I even got this book in the mail. I hadn't read anything by Stacy Hawkins Adams before so it was a refreshing change of pace. This is a great book, good strong characters and depth for the story line. A typical woman struggles with her past decisions and is confronted with them twenty years later. As a talented music teacher (Shiloh) meets a young gal who reminds her of herself and then lands in a similar situation she was once in. The relationship between Shiloh and Monica is good to read because I think it is a lot like real life and easy to relate with. 
This is not a fun fiction read, it deals with a ton of real life issues that aren't very pretty. I won't go into detail or I will ruin the book for future readers, but this is a more serious book. I do recommend it though because of its honesty and how well it is written. 

"I received this book from Booksneeze for free in exchange for an honest review."
