This is the season we all need it. Hope. Kim Vogel Sawyer is famous for her “gentle stories of hope” as in her romance novel, Sweet Sanctuary. An intriguing story about a mom and her son caught up in a very difficult situation–until they connect with a doctor who serves the immigrant neighborhoods of Queens, New York.
Lydia lay wide awake on her side on the lumpy mattress, her fists beneath her chin. She’d never been so tired, yet she couldn’t close her eyes. Pictures flashed through her mind–of those three older-than-their-years children in the backseat of Micah’s coupe; of Nicky, safe and warm in his bed at home while Nic Pankin prowled the city, trying to find him; of the children Micah had mentioned who survived hidden in cellars away from the sun. . .
A mother who does everything she can to protect her son is always a cause any mother will understand. The protective instinct of a parent is inherent and does not dissolve. And this story takes on that very strong emotion. Questions arise here: when does our small, personal world become too small? When we struggle through trials, does God lead us into a greater purpose? Sweet Sanctuary tackles all of these questions and comes up with answers in an amazing way.
Lydia laughed. She returned to her seat and picked up her fork. Conversation moved to other topics, but she only half listened. Her mind was miles away. In New York. In a little apartment where a dark-haired man and a blonde-haired little girl made plans to travel across the distance. You’ll soon know. Lydia let her eyes slide closed. Whatever the Lord willed for her, she was ready.
