"When Hope Blossoms" by Kim Vogel Sawyer Book Review

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bethany House Publishers. All opinions are 100% mine.

The product: When Hope Blossoms by Kim Vogel Sawyer is a modern story about an old order mennonite community.

Amy Knackstedt moves with her children to Weaverly, Kansas, to escape the speculation surrounding her husband's untimely death.
She hopes the new location will provide a fresh start for them all. But her neighbor, Tim Roper, is not pleased to have a Mennonite
family living next to his apple orchard. When the children try to befriend him, he resists. Tim left the Mennonite faith years ago and doesn't want any reminders of his former life. Yet Amy and Tim find their paths colliding far more than either could have foreseen. Will this tentative relationship blossom into something more?

What I thought: This is one of the best books I've read in a while. I was instantly caught up in the life of this young, single mother and the trials in her life. It was interesting to see how a group of mennonite people set down roots in a new place. And sometimes when love is farthest from your mind, is when you need it the most. It was a fun story full of hope and love. I think that you will enjoy this fictional title, especially if you are a fan of amish fiction (very similar).

Where to buy: You can find When Hope Blossoms by Kim Vogel Sawyer at book retailers everywhere.
