Deep in the Heart by Staci Stallings

My book review today is on the book, Deep in the Heart by Staci Stallings. I really enjoyed this book. It is well written and although her characters are complex they are people you come to care about. The story shows the hopelessness of the rich and famous as well as the riches of the poor. I liked that. It is about one man's journey to find his purpose.

Keith Ayer was born into a rich family. He tried living the high life but found it unfulfilling. Now he works for his father in the stables, no one considers it work though. His father sees him as a useless failure and takes the manager position away form him and gives it to the trainer. The only thing Keith has done right was to get engaged to a senator's daughter. Dallas is a young socialite, a soon to be lawyer, and only interested in his money. Keith hates his life.

Maggie Montgomery is an orphan, brought up in foster homes. She's taking a job as the Ayer's family nanny. It's a twenty-four/seven kind of a job. She soon learns that nannies only last there for an average of two weeks to a month. Her first day she trips and falls right into the arms of a hired hand or at least that's who she thinks he is. Keith is drawn to this young woman that seems to have no use for their money, loves the kids, and prays with them each night. Maggie is shocked when she finds out he is the boss' son and expects to be fired at any time for the things she has told him.

This is a great read, one you'll have a hard time putting down. One of the statements I love is; would you rather be rich and be poor or would you rather be poor and be rich. Maggie leads Keith back to the faith that his mother taught him and gives him a reason to live.
