"Be Still My Soul" takes place in the Appalachian hills, and is the story of Lonnie Sawyer, who at the age of seventeen had never been out with a boy let alone kiss one. When Gideon O'Riley walks her home one night she allows him a kiss, not realizing that one kiss would change her life forever, because when her father finds out he will force them to marry, even though neither want to.

What a wonderful story,it just flowed from the pages. Lonnie was a character that really gained my sympathy. She grew up in a less than ideal home, and then was forced into a shot gun wedding. While she hoped to get away from home when she turned eighteen her plan was to learn the trade of soap making and work with her aunt Sarah.As Gideon and Lonnie leave Rocky Knob in the hopes of finding work, we are taken on a spiritual and emotional journey that allows both characters to grow and change. For me Gideon's story was the most compelling because his life is the most transformed in the story. A reader's guide is included making this book perfect for group reads.
