Kansas author Kim Vogel Sawyer’s newest release “Guide Me Home” proves that she keeps improving with each novel.

neverending-stories-revisedThe story focuses on Rebekah Hardin, a poor Kentucky native who takes a job as a guide at the Mammoth Cave to help her family after a tragedy.

When a university student with big plans for the cave comes for a visit, Hardin’s future could change drastically.

I loved all of the characters in this novel. Each was extremely layered.

Their pasts affect the present in realistic ways, coloring the way they deal with those around them and with different situations.

Sawyer’s handling of grief and familial interactions once again were on point.

The descriptions of Mammoth Cave — and Kentucky in general — are absolutely wonderful. You can tell that Sawyer did her research.

This novel definitely won’t be a letdown to her fans, and lovers of historical fiction should give “Guide Me Home” a chance.

I gave it four out of five stars on Goodreads.
