Lead Me Home
Every August, Shiloh Griffin steals away from the world and her family, pulls out her recorder, and grieves for the choices she made when she was twenty years old. Hiding behind her image as pastor's wife and stay at home mom, she has kept secrets from everyone for eighteen years. But, things are about to change. When she is given the chance to mentor a fifteen year old budding musician, Shiloh can't help but see herself in young Monica. Especially when Monica makes mistakes of her own that start to mirror that of her mentor. Between mentoring Monica and dealing with Jade Smith, the perfect wife of their congregation's Associate Pastor, God is calling Shiloh to open up her heart, face her demons, and allow grace to go to work in her life.
Lead Me Home is a beautiful story that deals with hard issues. Shiloh's journey to forgiving herself and listening to God's voice, even when He calls us out of our comfort zone, is one that will stay with you long after you finish the last page.
