A Story of Hope and Love Set Against the Backdrop of World War II
Lydia Eldredge longs to provide sanctuary for her young 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 faithfully serves the immigrant population of Queens, New York. But under cover of darkness, he has a secret mission that challenges everything he thought he wanted out of life.
When Lydia and Micah’s paths cross, they are suddenly wrapped up in each other’s callings. Together, they seek a refuge of safety–for Nicky, for themselves, and for the needy people God puts into their lives. Amid turmoil and discord, can hope and love prevail?
One of Kim Vogel Sawyer's best books yet! Over the years I have read many of Kim's books and while I enjoyed most of them only a couple have stood out to me as favorites, well this one has easily become a favorite for me. With the WWII backdrop, sweet heroine, great hero and adorable little boy how could things go wrong.
I found this book to be a quick read since Kim pulled me in from the very first page all the way to the end. I found myself easily finishing this book in an afternoon while my baby girl was snoozing away. As much as I loved finding out how things would all work out I was quite sad when the last page was read. I loved both Lydia and Micah and enjoyed following their story and seeing their romance blossom.
I highly recommend this book to fans of historical romance and Kim Vogel Sawyer. You really can't go wrong with this book!
