By the age of 11, Lilly had suffered more horrific circumstances, than any adult should have to bear. She lost both of her parents and the only home she ever knew, then was forced to move away from her brothers and sisters.
Why had God allowed all of this tragedy?
Pa had found the perfect home for her before his death. Through her new family’s loving care and instruction, Lilly grew into a beautiful young lady, filled with compassion, intelligence, and having a strong faith in God.
When she met Tommy, her heart flipped! How could she make all of the life lessons she had learned, her faith in God, and Tommy fit into God’s plan for her life? Was Tommy truly part of God’s plan for her?
Tommy and his mother’s past brought possible danger to anyone close to them. Could Lilly put her family through that? Should she abandon Tommy and the feelings she had for him? Could prayer be the answer?
With more circumstances beyond their control fighting against them, it seemed their troubles would never end. Would God allow her the Desires of her Heart?

IN MY OPINION
Where He Leads by Lynne Lanning is one girl’s journey of faith and youth.
Lynne Lanning fills the pages of this book with strong themes of faith and family as Lilly’s loss of her biological family leads her to her forever family. Readers spend half of the book with Lilly as she says goodbye to one family and finds her place in her new one. Then the book skips ahead several years to Lilly heading to school and falling in love.
At first, I had a difficult time nailing down the time period and setting. I knew it was historical because of a couple events that occur throughout, but didn’t learn the actual years until I read the authors note at the end of the book (it’s set during the 1880s). The name of the town is mentioned once in the book and also the fact they are in the mountains comes up a single time.
And while those were minor frustrations that kept me from fully engaging in the story, I wanted to follow Lilly through her journey until she reached her happy ending after such a difficult early life.
