About the Book
Amid open fields and empty pews, small towns can crush big dreams.Abandoned by his no-good father and forced to grow up too soon, Noble Burden has set his dreams aside to run the family farm. Meanwhile, James Horton, the pastor of the local church, questions his own calling as he prepares to close the doors for good.As a severe storm rolls through, threatening their community and very livelihood, both men fear losing what they care about most . . . and reconsider where they truly belong.
I really liked the idea of this book but it didn't quite make it on my favorite list. I love the setting, it reminded me of home and small town/church life. The thing that really made this book worth it was how small town churches are struggling. Churches in general and losing people but in this book it portrays a pastor who is in the battle and what he goes through. A few of the other characters I didn't enjoy as much but otherwise Amy did a great job with her setting and topic, it just moved a bit slow for me.
