I have read the 2 preceding books to the series -- they are awesome. This book is also a wonderful read. I get lost in a different world. Sawyer is an amazing writer that spins a wonderful story of love, forgiveness and excitment.

Although it is a novel, it has some valuable truths, I.e.standing up and doing what is right in Gods eyes.

HASH(0x9875f6c0) out of 5 stars A Story Relevant for Today Oct. 9 2008
By Dawn Kinzer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Where the Heart Leads is an engaging story about Thomas Ollenberger, a young man torn between his Mennonite roots on the Kansas prairie and his love for the big city of Boston. Thomas also struggles with his attraction toward two women. Two women who are so different, the only thing they have in common is their feelings for Thomas.

Even though this novel is set in 1904, it still resonates with what people experience today. We all must decide on a daily basis what path we choose. Do we let ourselves be drawn to what looks like the ultimate path to happiness? Or do we seek God for His direction and His timing?

And sometimes, when we think we have it all figured out . . . God surprises us.

I have to admit--this book was not satisfying for me--but only because I was not ready to see the story end! I wanted to read further and continue the journey I'd begun with the characters. Where the Heart Leads is the sequel to Kim's novel, Waiting for Summer's Return, another favorite of mine. Both also work well as stand-alone novels. You don't HAVE to read one to enjoy the other, but I encourage you to read both.

HASH(0x9875f714) out of 5 stars A Sequel as Good as the First Oct. 16 2008
By Linda Wood Rondeau - Published on
Format: Paperback
Through connections he has made from Summer's family, Thomas Ollenburger has had the advantage of a college education. For the past several years, he has been away from his roots and the lifestyle of all that is familiar. Now he must make a choice. Not only in where he will live, but what to choose for a career and whom he should marry. These are not the only issues clouding Thomas' life. He finds himself questioning the values of the father who raised him.
Only when Thomas's finds himself face to face with ethical choices does he truly appreciate those values instilled upon him through his life.

Kim Sawyer has done an outstanding job in this sequel to Waiting for Summer's return. In this story, she has taken an historical episode and weaved the impact of history upon the fictional lives of those who might have been impacted by these events. Once again she shows how God preserves those who set their hearts and mind upon Him.

HASH(0x9875fb4c) out of 5 stars Sequel to Waiting for Summer's Return Sept. 3 2008
By M.K. Bullock - Published on
Format: Paperback
by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Reviewed by Marion Kelley Bullock

If you've read Waiting for Summer's Return, you're probably dying to read more about Summer, Peter Ollenburger, and his son, Thomas. Thomas, grown now, and having earned a college degree from Boston Tech, must make a momentous decision. He's lived in Boston with Nadine Steadman, Summer's mother-in-law, for the past six years, in order to complete his education. He's torn between his Mennonite roots in Hillsboro, Kansas, and his love for Boston, where he's been offered a newspaper job befitting his education. Add to that his affection for a girl in each place. Which path does God want him to choose? Which girl?

While Thomas struggles with these decisions, he's faced with another conflict. His boss expects him to support a certain political candidate. Now he finds that this candidate's ideals and values are opposed to his own. He wants to be where he can do the most good. But how can he write less than the truth?

HASH(0x9875ff0c) out of 5 stars A Timely Historical With A Twist Sept. 15 2008
By Jennifer Farey - Published on
Format: Paperback
In the long-awaited follow-up to Waiting for Summer's Return, Kim Vogel Sawyer takes us on a journey with Thomas Ollenburger. He is torn between a life as a journalist in Boston, and returning to his small hometown to make a life there. Even worse, he finds he has feelings for women in both places.

This book surprised me more than once. A subplot concerning a presidential election and the power of the press makes it remarkably timely. And the romance aspect, while sweet and gentle, is unique with a lovely twist.

Fans of Sawyer will not be disappointed with her latest offering. And if you've never read this author before, don't worry. Even though this is a sequel, you can read it on its own and never feel left behind. Enjoy!

HASH(0x9876300c) out of 5 stars Where the Heart Leads June 30 2010
By Zette T - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was looking forward to reading this sequel to "Waiting for Summer's Return" to find out what happens to young Thomas Ollenburger as he becomes a man. He turned out to be the man I hoped he would become and was faithful to his father's teachings and Godly heritage. I prefer a book with a little more spark to the romance so I was a bit disappointed in that area. You don't even know who Thomas is really interested in for most of the book. The ending was skimmed over with what felt like quick resolutions to finish up the story. I enjoyed the book but probably won't read it again.
