----------
City girl Jessie, orphaned at sixteen, struggles to adjust to life with her barely known aunt and uncle in the tiny town of Bradleyville, Kentucky. Eight years later (1968) she plans on leaving-to following in her revered mother's footsteps of serving the homeless. But the peaceful town she's come to love is about to be tragically shattered. Threats of a labor strike rumble through the streets, and Jessie's new love and her uncle are swept into the maelstrom. Caught between the pacifist teachings of her mother and these two men, Jessie desperately tries to deny that Bradleyville is rolling toward violence and destruction.

Editorial Reviews

RT BookReviews - Bev Huston
"By far one of the best books I've read this year. Collins makes writing seem incredibly easy as she bares her heroine's soul for readers to struggle and identify with." --Best Inspirational Novel nominee
Contest - Holt Awards
Best Inspirational Finalist
Online - Jill Nelson
"Ms. Collins' command of characterization is nothing less than phenomenal.Every individual in the story is someone who could live down the street, and yet so intriguingly drawn that there is nothing ordinary about any of them. Your emotions will be tugged every which way until the end, a satisfying conclusion to a gourmet meal. My advice? Get your hands on anything Ms. Collins has written. You won't be disappointed."
Online - Pearl Colley
"Brandilyn Collins knows how to captivate her audience. Once you enter Bradleyville, you won't want to leave either! Pick up "Color a Sidewalk for Me" and "Capture the Wind for Me" to spend more time with the background characters in this novel. It will definitely be worth your time."
Online - Ane Mulligan
"Deep, complex emotions characterize Collins' writing. I loved Cast a Road Before Me and give it a high recommendation."

    222 pages

    This 222 page novel is very religious. After reading the first three chapters, I almost deleted it. Not because of the religion, but because of how saddened and disturbed I felt. A 16 year old girl witnessed the car accident in which her mother died. The following funeral and the daughter's misery and pain, left me shaken. The author did a very realistic, detailed description of the agony and fear the young girl feels. I felt every heart rending tear. Torn from her home, she goes to live with a distant aunt and uncle in the small town of Bradleyville. Bradleyville has some major problems of its own. As a Christian book, this one is very well done, very clean and yet true to life. At times the religion is over the top and gets a bit boring, much like a hot, Sunday morning, when the preacher goes on and on on a subject that is boring and seems to have little to do with the struggles of everyday life. There several sequals to this book. Book two is $2.99. Thr rest are $3.99. The conclusion is more than adequate, but about 5% of the sub plots are left unfinished so the story can flow seamlessly into the next book. I liked the way God really did become her copilot at the end and showed her which way to go to get home. For ages of perhaps as young as 15, through adulthood. Some men might enjoy this very entertaing read, but it is geared more toward the fairer sex.
