Your Hand in Mine, We Will Go by Lynn Cavanaugh-Blades is a lovely story of faith and family. Set in small towns in North Carolina in 1964 we get a taste of nostalgia and a flavor of the south. Bringing to life familiar places in Beaufort County, it gives an insight into the life of seven year old Lynn and the choices she made that faithful year that impacted the rest of her life.
A story of fear and courage, love and faith and family. Like her favorite song by the Beatles “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, Lynn discovers that if she has faith in God, he will hold her hand and there is nothing she should fear.
I met Lynn at a Writers Read in Belhaven, she was there promoting her book. This is her first book and it has a lot of the history of Belhaven and Beaufort County as seen by the eyes of a child. Ms. Blades read a excerpt of her story to the group that night and I was so charmed by her characters, and her memories of them. This Faith-based story is a sweet account of learning to trust God.
