Sweet Sanctuary - A Review
Lydia Eldridge is willing to do almost anything to keep her young son out of the clutches of his drug-addicted father. When her father tries to help her out by involving a college from her past, Lydia is reacquainted with Dr. Micah Hatcher. Micah arrives in Boston to set the record straight. Yet once there, he finds himself captivated by Nicky and his mother. Offering another solution to the problem, Micah returns to New York and his work among the immigrants. A search sends Lydia to New York where her path crosses Micah's again. She sees his work with the immigrants as well as the "packages" he receives on occasion. As the pair struggle to find a way that will allow Nicky to remain with those who love him, they realize that their callings are joining together as well - including Micah's secret calling. Will they learn to trust God in everything including the fates of Nicky and the immigrants?
I'm pretty sure that this was the first book I've read by Kim Vogel Sawyer. I loved the setting - WWII. There were times it took me a bit to get into the story, but a lot of that has to do with my not being in a reading mood. I think Nicky was my favorite character in the whole book. He's got such a cheerful personality and outlook on life. The other characters were well written, and I enjoyed them.
I received this book for free from Bethany House for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommend to fans of Renee Ryan, Janette Oke, Lauraine Snelling, Tracie Peterson, Beverly Lewis, WWII
