A Fabulous Romance - Full of Mystery and Intrigue!

"Sweet Sanctuary"
By Kim Vogel Sawyer

If you are looking for a romance that will grab your attention on the first page, and keep it until the last one, then , look no farther!!! This book is outstanding in its appeal to the true romantic !! Well written, with a problem that evolves throughout the book, it is truly an amazing work of art!!

The main character, Lucy Eldredge is a single mother, or so it appears, longing to provide sanctuary for her little boy, Nicky.  However, there are constant threats, which are getting more serious, coming from Nicky's  drug-addicted father, who is struggling to get his son and will do ANYTHING to do so!!

Entering the scene, is a wonderful Christian man, Dr. Micah Hatcher, who serves the immigrant population of Queens , New York. BUT under great secrecy, he has a highly dangerous mission that challenges everything he thought he wanted out of life. 

When Lydia and Micah's paths cross, they suddenly become deeply involved in each other's callings. They both seek a refuge of safety - for themselves, for Nicky , as well as for the needy people that God puts in their pathways. Will hope and love prevail- even in the midst of turmoil and discord? Obstacles seem to stand in the way at every turn!

These characters are so realistic and described so vividly , that they become part of you.  I could easily identify with Lydia, who desperately wants a home of her own, a safe place for Nicky , as well as a partner to love and share with.  Micah is an outstandingly empathetic young man striving to do his best in a world full of turmoil. You can feel the struggles and challenges that these two people meet. My heart dropped as I read parts of this book and felt the heartbreak and fear of Lydia.

The plot was full of twists and turns - that amazingly all connected, in a fabulous surprising way. This is one book where all of my predictions of the solutions to the problems were WRO|NG!!  I loved the element of surprise. Just the right amount of tension to hold your interest!

Definitely a five star book!!!  NOT a surprise!! Kim Vogel Sawyer's books  are all outstanding!
