Room for Hope by Kim Vogel Sawyer is full of Hope

Another very good book by Sawyer. The author did a great job writing this story in a way I could feel Neva’s pain. I found myself thinking what would I do? Could I take in these children? But in heartache there was hope.

Neva was far from perfect, but in her dark moments her daughter Belle would point her to God’s love. Belle was a consistent light throughout the story. A very special young lady.

This story not only highlights the hardships of the 1930’s but it shows the judgmental attitudes that were prevalent in that time. And sadly we see those attitudes today.  The author did surprise me on the direction the romance went.

The story was told from several perspectives in third person. I was surprised and impressed that the author was able to do this without repeating scenes and it kept the story moving forward.

I would buy this book for friends and family that enjoy historical fiction. Sawyer fans should enjoy this story. It is heartfelt and touching along with being well written. If you are new to Sawyer this will give you a good taste of her talents. I will admit Sawyer’s  Through the Deep Watersis still my favorite book.
