Sharon's Review:
I found this book entertaining as well as well written. Amelia and her husband are struggling to make ends meet with working multiple jobs from day to day. Amelia is an accomplished pianoist and wants to play for something better that teaching kids how to play. Her husband tutors kids in different things and has been offered a position as a senior pastor at a church in Nebraska, but Amelia does not want to move for she has landed a job with a musical troupe to play the piano. What are they going to do? They decide to let God lead them to the positions that God wants them to have and where God wants them to be
