Voeller, who lives in Oregon, set The Heart Leads Home, in Mistletoe Valley, where she created an interesting place and a believable community.
28-year-old Sara Pendleton returns to the valley after her grandmother’s death to sell the estate she inherited. Beautiful and heartsore, Sara doesn’t know how to move on. She has lost her husband and child through divorce and her grandfather, a pastor as well as her grandmother, who brought her up.
Sara is a 1st grade teacher who, while being back in Mistletoe Valley, felt uncomfortable, although home was ‘also a refuge, a chance to reconcile with her past, but maybe, she has come home to heal.’
Rich Stevens, a youth pastor, also has to deal with his past. His wife, Dawn, died two years ago and he and his 8-year-old daughter Carly, are trying to recover from Dawn’s death.
I lingered over Voeller’s word pictures of Mistletoe Valley. For example, ‘Rich watched a beaver gathering twigs and small branches to bank up a small dam. A trumpeter swan stood poised in the shallows, regal and graceful as it dipped its long neck to forage on the seeds of yellow pond lily and sago pond weed, its bill, black at the base and pink at the top…The tranquillity of his surroundings settled over him.” I completely identified with the ability of nature’s beauty to calm a person.
This description of food unfamiliar to me is intriguing. ‘Rich wondered how well black bean pumpkin soup might go with pumpkin ice-cream.’
The Heart Leads Home is a gentle, heart-warming story, with enough conflict and tension to maintain the reader’s interest.
From beginning to end I enjoyed Voeller’s novel, which lingered in my mind long after I finished it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm-hearted portrayal of the need for second chances 2 Dec. 2013
By Sandra Cody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read several other books by this author and have enjoyed them all. Voeller has a real gift for creating multi-dimensional characters and exposing their vulnerabilities. The Heart Leads Home is no exception. Sarah and Rich have to deal with past struggles before they can move on to their futures. Their story plays out against the backdrop of a small town that Sarah is determined to leave behind. Rich's grief for the wife he lost and concern for his daughter hold him back from the attraction he feels growing toward Sarah. I

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet, Lovely Romance 14 July 2013
By LuvBooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A sweet contemporary romance about two people struggling to overcome difficulties in their pasts and their fears about letting themselves love again. One thing I especially liked about this story is that it gave us the point of view of both the female and male main characters, both of whom were realistic and well-developed. A great book to curl up with.
