Heavenly Purpose, by Becca Fisher (author), Stephanie Richardson (narrator)


Kevin MacGorman, January 2020

Patricia leaves her Amish home in Lancaster to pursue her dream of a career in Christian music. In the big city, she finds a family to rent a room from, a church where she can worship and sing in the choir, and a job singing--as a singing waitress in a restaurant. She's got good people around her, but she's not making much progress on her dream.

She's also found a rival, another young Amish woman, Valerie, at her new church, who also has dreams of a music career, and is prepared to cut down anyone who might be in her way. Valerie is beautiful and also an excellent singer.

Then two things happen. First, she meets a young man, David, whom she shares a strong attraction with, and who supports her dream as much as she does.

The second is a chance to enter a contest, a Christian music contest with a prize of $1,000 and contract with a Christian music label.

Valerie, of course, also enters.

Patricia is convinced this is the end of her dream, but her landlords/friends, and David, continue to show real confidence in her.

This is a sweet, gentle story, about keeping both your values and your dreams.
