Publishers Description
Twelve years ago, spoiled Amy Halbert changed her name, demanded her share of the family's money, and dropped out of sight. Now as her father lies dying at the family farm in Kansas, Amy shows up out of nowhere. Her father is overjoyed to see her and learns that she's come to know the Lord. Before he dies, he begs his older daughter, Kathy, to be a good sister and welcome Amy back into the family. But Kathy struggles with the old feelings of betrayal and bitterness that consume her. How can she forgive someone who brought such misery into their lives? Throughout the tumultuous summer, the two women sort through not only their parents' belongings, but also a past full of questions and pain. Will both sisters find their way home again?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Where My Heart Belongs  Apr 5, 2010
Like all of Tracie Peterson's book this was a very good one. I received it in a timely fashion and in very good condition.
Not very exciting  Sep 9, 2008
This book was really just 'blah'. I was pretty bored throughout and while you want to root for the sisters, the author does not absorb you in their lives. I think if I could really get involved in who they are and their lives, I might care a little more as to what happens to them.
light reading  Apr 21, 2008
Enjoyed this book. Light rreading but sometimes that is what I am looking for.
Which part of our heart to follow?  Mar 28, 2008
Reviewed by Tammy Petty Conrad for Reader Views (3/08

This story follows the tale from the Bible of the Prodigal Son. Only this time, it is a daughter in modern-day Kansas who comes home having lost her inheritance and hurting her family deeply. The author, Tracie Peterson, gets right to the heart of things on page one and keeps moving all the way to the end, undoubtedly changing a few hearts along the way.

Kathy is a Kansas farmer's daughter who has done her duty. She stayed home and cared for her parents when her younger sister Amy left the stifling confines of their small town and the high-school sweetheart she was afraid she'd end up marrying. Actually it was "Sunshine" who left, because even her birth name seemed to hold her back from the future she yearned to have.

The story moves easily between the present and the past with the use of flashbacks into the family's history. Kathy remembers exactly what it was like when Sunshine left and what she had to give up during the twelve years her sister remained absent. Although Kathy has just become engaged, she pushes her young man away once her mother becomes too ill to care for herself.

Of course Sunshine knows nothing of the tragedy that befalls her family after her departure. And her family knows nothing of the horrors she endures. They fear she is dead and Amy often wishes she was.

This is a tale of how Kathy comes to grips with the actual reality of Sunshine's existence and how she allows her to become part of the family again. But it is not a quick and easy adjustment for Kathy or her sister. Although raised in a Christian family, she finds it extremely hard to accept her sister back into the family and to forgive her. Finally she does realize something about grace: "But isn't that what grace is all about? Getting what we don't deserve?" She has this light-bulb moment with a particularly annoying woman which makes it all the more meaningful!

I appreciated that this wasn't just Kathy's story, but Sunshine's too. Although both were selfish at times, their motivations were revealed and I could imagine becoming friends with either of them and understanding where they came from and why they made the choices they did. The author has written over 70 books in a variety of genres. "Where My Heart Belongs" entertains, inspires and encourages readers to look at people and events from every angle before drawing conclusions.

Big disappointment  Feb 12, 2008
I had high expectations after I read the previous reviews. What a big disappointment. I love to support Christian authors but this book was just so poorly written--very sophomoric. It felt like it was written in a weekend. There was very little character development. I found myself not caring about what happened to the characters. It was just so predictable and cliched. I forced myself to finish it because my book club selected it. Don't bother.
