When Hope Blossoms

by Kim Vogel Sawyer

From Bethany House Publishers


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?


When Hope Blossoms  by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Tim Roper thought he could run from God, hid himself in his apple trees, but when a Mennonite widow and her children moved in the farmhouse next to his, his life changed forever. But that change took a while, and the changed unfold between the pages of Kim Vogel Sawyer’s new book, “When Hope Blossoms.”

I love Kim Vogel Sawyers books, and this one is another winner for me. I love Tim and Amy’s story. Even though they both has a past that seemed impossible for them, God had a plan for their life, and in Him timing, He worked their lives together for their own good. I love how Kim weaves together families and communities and comes up with a story that captures the attention of readers from the very first page. I have to say I was so intrigued and captivated by this book I read it in one day! I love the way the realistic characters steal their way into your heart as the story unfolds around you. You don’t want to miss this beautiful, sweet story of love, forgiveness and acceptance. Grab your copy today to read and enjoy for yourself!
