Review: Sweet Sanctuary
Author: Kim Vogel Sawyer
Genre: FICT, Historical Fiction
A Story of Hope and Love Set Against the Backdrop of World War II
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?
An interesting book based during WWII, it kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. I could hardly put it down until I finished it.
The romance between Lydia and Micah was an interesting blossom that opened so slowly that they didn’t even realize they were starting to love each other until a crisis threw them together.
I wish there would have been parts where the point of view would have been with Jeremiah, Micah’s brother, who worked to save Jewish children from being killed. His mission just gets put into a conversation every now and then.
I would recommend this book to anyone that asked me for a good book to read. Out of 5 stars I think I would rate it 4.5 only because I think that Jeremiah should have had a bigger part in the book.
