Review: When Hope Blossoms
Author: Kim Vogel Sawyer
Amy Knackstedt hopes a new start in Weaverly, Kansas, will help heal the pain of losing her husband and provide a better future for her three children. But her new neighbor, Tim Roper, is not pleased to have an Old Order Mennonite family living next to his apple orchard. Tim left the Mennonite faith years ago and doesn’t want any reminders of his former life.
Yet when circumstances throw Amy and Tim together, they form a friendship that surprises them both. Will past hurts always be a barrier between them, or will this tentative relationship blossom into something more?
The story of Amy Knackstedt and her children. They move to Weaverly, Kanses after Amy’s husband dies. Amy wants to make a new start for her family.
But she didn’t count on having a hostile neighbor. Tim Roper hates anything to do with the Mennonite people. Yet he can’t help being drawn to Parker, Amy’s son.
Though I hadn’t read any of Kim’s books before, I really enjoyed this book. She weaves a little romance in with the plot of the story.
I think my favorite character was Bekah, Amy’s oldest daughter. She’s 13 and faces the same problem’s that teens everywhere face.
All in all it was an awesome read. Thank you to all the authors out there that make reading Christian fiction with real life problem’s in them.
Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. These words are mine 100%.
