Sweet Sanctuary



A Story of Hope and Love from Bestselling Author Kim Vogel Sawyer

Lydia Eldredge longs to provide a sanctuary for her son, Nicky. But a constant threat comes from Nicky's drug-addicted father, who wants the boy and seems willing to do whatever it takes to get him.

Dr. Micah Hatcher serves the immigrant population in Queens, but under cover of darkness he provides another service that must not be discovered lest his and his brother's lives be in danger.

When Lydia and Micah's paths cross, they are suddenly wrapped up in each other's callings. Through unforeseen twists and turns, they seek a refuge of safety--for Nicky, for themselves, and for the needy people God unexpectedly puts in their lives.

My Review:

This sweet romance comes with a multitude of complications that Sawyer expertly weaves amidst the backdrop of World War II. Sweet Sanctuary is a stirring story with many unexpected turns that piqued my interest and held my attention. The inspirational thread is prominent, present in nearly every scene and affects the lives of both the hero and heroine as well as numerous secondary characters. A powerful witness to Christ's redeeming love.

  2. I've enjoyed every book by Kim that I've read (maybe a dozen) so I'm expecting to like this one as well. I'm especially excited to read Sweet Sanctuary since it is a different time period than Kim's other books. It's kind of fun when an author steps outside of his or her usual time period or genre and stretches themselves to write something a bit different. Thanks for the chance to win this new book by one of my favorite authors.
