Sweet Sanctuary is the latest offering from beloved historical author Kim Vogel Sawyer, but this is her first (and hopefully not last) foray into WWII novels. The story starts with Dr. Micah Hatcher accused of something he didn’t do, so he heads to Boston to set the story straight. When he arrives he falls in love with a little boy and finds himself drawn into the plans to protect the boy from his drug-addicted father. As the heroine is introduced through the doctor’s eyes, I wondered at first if I could like her. Then the reasons she’d made the decisions she did spilled onto the pages, and I found myself rooting for her. She would do anything to protect Nicky. There’s a hint of suspense. A whisper of love that grows. And a historical setting that I adore. A great read!
A Story of Hope and Love Set Against the Backdrop of World War II

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?
