Room For Hope By Kim Vogel Sawyer

About the Book:

In a desperate time, can Neva find forgiveness for a grievous wrong—and make room for hope?

Neva Shilling has a heavy load of responsibility while her husband travels to neighboring communities and sells items from his wagon. In his absence, she faithfully runs the Shilling Mercantile, working to keep their business strong as the Depression takes its toll, and caring for their twins.

When a wagon pulls up after supper, Neva and her children rush out—and into the presence of the deputy driving a wagon carrying three young children. The deputy shocks her with the news that Warren and his wife have died, insisting it was their last request that the three children go live with “Aunt Neva.”

Neva’s heart is shattered as she realizes that Warren’s month-long travels were excuses for visits with his secret family. She wants nothing more than to forget Warren, but can she abandon these innocent children to an orphanage? Yet if she takes them in, will she ever be able to see them as more than evidence of her husband’s betrayal and love them the way God does?

My Review:

5 Stars

I just love Kim Vogel Sawyer's books, read many over the years, and this one was easily a favorite. I really enjoyed the setting and the characters and was very sad when the book ended.
Kim weaved God's love and message very well throughout the story. I loved how Neva trusted God no matter the trials she faced and how she pushed through. Not everyone is dealt an easy life but that doesn't mean that good can't come from it and that God knows what He is doing.

Anyone that has read Kim's books before or new to her should pick this book up and enjoy it like I have!
