SWEET SANCTUARY by Kim Vogel Sawyer

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...

A beautiful story set in WWII. Lydia and her young son have had a life of turmoil because of Nicky's drug addicted father. Such a sad life for a child to endure. Lydia sets out to find a safe haven for them. She meets Micah, a physician serving immigrants and they get caught up in each other's missions.

This is a sweet story of sacrifice and love. A sad story of turmoil in the lives of children as well as adults, the way Sawyer worked out the situations and showed how God can work are wonderful. I highly recommend this one!

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
