The story combines the historical elements, with mystery and action, but the key factor is underlying it all is faith. The two great strengths of the story are the ability by Wahl to weave a plot this is so gripping and entertaining and yet maintaining the believability factor. And Second the characters. I need to admit that the budding relationship element (romance) in the novel is not what attracts a middle aged man to the story. But it is done in such a way that at least for this reader the romance is secondary. The theme of trusting and following God's leading, even when you do not understand it. The main characters realization that the little things we do in faith matter as much as the big things God calls us to do. And the whole mystery of missing civil war gold.
The story begins with Eve waking up from a vision. It was more real than many of her memories. And inspired by it, she starts searching for the guy she sees in the vision, and works towards steering her family into a cross country move. Set in and around Washington, DC the book is full of significant sites, and reminder of the past, the history. Soon Nick and Eve are doing all they can to unravel a mystery and track clues that go back to the civil war.
The writing is tight. The characters very well developed. Once you start reading you will find it hard to put the book down. It is a gripping read and the tension really builds as the main characters find themselves threatened on more than one front. Even as a non-American the story is gripping it will draw you in and keep you riveted to the pages. This is a good clean Christian novel.
The novel is an excellent read, and could serve as the beginning of a series, but for that only time will tell. As mentioned written for a Young Adult audience, but great for anyone who enjoys a good mystery!
"Where You Lead" kicks off in New Mexico, where I grew up, which made it especially enjoyable for me. Wahl captures the Southwestern atmosphere perfectly! The story doesn't stay there, however. By extraordinary events (which I don't want to spoil for you) Eve, the heroine, ends up in Washington D.C. where she pairs up with the hero, Nick. Again, the description of the setting is so well done that I felt like I was right there at the Capital city, even though I've never actually visited D.C. The fun and intrigue escalates with every chapter until a surprise ending that took me completely unawares. During their adventure, both Eve and Nick grow not only closer to each other and to solving their mystery, but, perhaps most importantly, they grow closer to God and discover whom He wants them to be (which, by the way, is a common theme in her other books as well).
I know teens will love this book! If you're a teacher or a homeschooling parent, it would be easy and fun to incorporate this novel into part of a Civil War or civics unit study. Like all of Leslea Wahl's novels, this is a new winner and highly recommended!
I enjoyed the attraction and interactions between these characters and following along as they tried to solve this unique mystery. As a history lover, I enjoyed the tidbits about the Civil War and the “virtual tour” of Washington D.C., visiting museums, monuments, cemeteries, and other historical places with the characters.
Several wonderful messages are weaved through this story, too, like trusting in God even when we can’t understand His plan and realizing that the smaller missions from God are just as important as the bigger missions. With her sharp writing style, ability to develop a riveting mystery, and the way she weaves faith into her stories, Leslea Wahl has become one of my favorite authors.
I am honored to have been given an advanced copy of this book and I highly recommend it for teens and adults. In addition to the bits of history and positive role models, this book is just plain fun!
