ANOTHER Book Review : "A Hopeful Heart" By Kim Vogel Sawyer

Kim Vogel Sawyer has outdone herself again!! She treats readers to a love story that definitely speaks to the heart. My attention was immediately captured upon beginning the first chapter, where Kim introduces the main character, Tressa, who is alone on a train, awaiting a rather frightening, adventure. She is to attend a one of a kind program that teaches young women from the East the skills to become a rancher- OR more importantly- become the wife of one!! Unknown challenges, a new environment- will she be able to be successful?? Tressa, who was once used to a privileged life, fears she will not have what it takes to survive and the hands-on instruction in skills such as milking a cow, branding a calf, cooking up a mess of grub for hungry ranch hands!!

Upon her arrival at the "school", Tressa meets others who in similar circumstances- many trials and oppositions. To meet the "man of her dreams" becomes somewhat of a mystery- who is that man? Which of two should she be with?? Mysteries are unveiled- cattle stolen, shots fired- you just never know what will happen next!!

All in all, this book was a delightful historical fiction, with a definite
Christian influence. Surprises around each corner.
