Still My Forever by Kim Vogel Sawyer

 Four years after leaving town to make a name for himself as a composer, Gilbert Baty has returned temporarily to Falke, Kansas. Now, he’s trying to keep everyone from learning the truth about his disastrous years in New York City. He hopes to start writing music again in Falke, but he can’t help being distracted by Ava Flaming, the brown-eyed baker to whom he was briefly engaged before he ended things—and who still stirs feelings in him he knows he has no right to pursue. 

Ava had thought she was past the loss of Gil Baty. But to her dismay, she’s as drawn to him as ever. The situation only gets worse when Gil establishes a youth band in Falke, showing once more what a good man he is. 

But when the band has a chance to compete in a statewide competition, Ava faces the prospect of heartbreak again. Could music take Gil away forever this time? Or might God be stirring in Ava’s and Gil’s hearts a new song that will draw them together for good?

My Review


This read began when Gilbert Baty comes home from NYC to Falke Kansas, not really having accomplished what he wanted to, but with hopes of going back?

Can you go home again, seems like it with this loving town, they seem to rally around this young man returning to their fold, if even for a little while. There are complications, and some feeling run very deep. He left a young woman that he loved behind!

This little town has had so much heartache, they have lost so many to a fever that went through their town a few years ago, including Gil's parents! Through all of this, the people of this town have a love of music, most come from a Mennonite community in Russia, and are all very close. Love how they all rally around those in need.

Through out the read there is the question of will Gil return to NY and what about Ava? Answers come along with answers to secrets long held. A really good read you don't want to miss!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Waterbrook Press, and was not required to give a positive review.
