Byrdstown author publishes “Where He Leads Me” book

Byrdstown author publishes “Where He Leads Me” bookCollene Baker's first book "Where He Leads Me" is a powerful inspection of family, love and belief in God. This transcendental journey into the heart of a young woman trying to find her place in the world and serve her creator. Following the will of God, she finds herself in the most unlikeliest of places and engaged in a romance that she cannot deny.
In the book, Lauren Tyler-Tibbs was an heiress to a huge fortune and could have lived in any way that she desired. A vision from God nagged at her, however, and as she received counsel about it, her life was forever changed. Upon conversion to Christ, her father ordered her out of the house. The next thing she knew, she was in Cloverdale, WV seeking to help the poor and needy of Appalachia. By providence, she ended up next door to another bitterman and despite his constant meanness to her, she felt a strange attraction that she hoped would be returned.
Mrs. Baker was born and raised in Monticello, Ky. She now lives in Byrdstown with her husband, Charlie and two youngest sons. Together they have been blessed with five children and twice as many grandchildren. Mrs. Baker always loved to read and began writing at an early age.
As a teenager, she and her friend Sandi spent a lot of time writing short stories and poetry that was sometime printed in their local paper.
Now, when possible the author writes and sings her own songs, accompanied on guitar with her husband. "Where He Leads Me" can be purchased at bookstores everywhere or online.
