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 Review: While this book is set in a different time period than most of Kim Sawyer's works, it still contains the same quality that I have come to expect from the author. I really enjoyed Sweet Sanctuary because of the unique look at the life at home during the second World War. I appreciated how Sawyer handled some difficult subjects in this book, such as spousal abuse, drug addiction, and the Holocaust. My favorite part of the story was the children characters. Little Nicky was absolutely endearing. I know when I pick up a Sawyer book that I'm going to get a sweet story line, engaging characters, and the outpouring of an author's heart bringing glory to God.
My Recommendation: I recommend this book to readers who enjoy the era of WWII and fans of Kim Vogel Sawyer.
