Vacation Reading: When Hope Blossoms
I have been reading a lot at night. And much of what I have been reading is, quite frankly, vacation reading.
I have just wanted to take a mental break. We have been busy and there doesn’t to be an end in sight, this year.
Thank you, Bethany House, for providing the resources (through books) to do this very thing. Relax. Unwind. Get quiet.
Most recently, I read When Hope Blossoms by Kim Vogel Sawyer.
Amy Knackstedt’s husband died. And the his death raised some questions. To escape the questions, memories, and polite stares, Amy moves herself and the children to another town, where several Mennonite families have begun living.
As the Knackstedt’s make themselves at home, they befriend their widow neighbor, Tim Roper, a former Mennonite himself with a chip on his shoulder.
Through kindness, sweet children, and natural disasters, God has a plan to have Tim return to the fold, repair damaged relationships, and start over again.
Enjoy When Hope Blossoms, a sweet and gentle story.
Note: Bethany House sent me When Hope Blossoms to review at my leisure. I was not paid for this post. All opinions and summary are mine. You can find When Hope Blossoms on Amazon.
