Sweet Sanctuary~Kim Vogel Sawyer~Book Review

by adustyframe ~ April 27th, 2013

 

About the Book:

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?

My thoughts:I can’t remember if I’ve read any books by this author before but I enjoyed this one. Micah and Lydia worked together in the military during WWII. She was boy crazy and he was trying to avoid her.Micah is shocked to receive a letter from her father claiming that Micah is the father of  Lydia’s child and that he needs to immediately care for his responsibilities. Micah is furious and goes to set Lydia straight. He finally finds out the story–he’s not the father and Lydia is embarrassed that her father coerced Micah into coming to see them.
