Room For Hope

Neva Shilling is a loving and dedicated wife.  She works hard while her husband is traveling and selling items from his wagon.  It is the middle of the Depression and times are hard, but her husband provides well for her.  She would trade it all in though for more time with her husband.  She faithfully cares for their twins and runs the Shilling Mercantile. 

She is preparing a special dinner for the return of her husband when a wagon pulls up.  Instead of seeing her beloved husband she is greeted by a deputy delivery three young children into her care.  The sheriff informs Neva that her brother Warren and his wife has passed and his last wishes for her to care for their three children.  

Neva's world comes crashing down around her as she realizes that her husband had a secret family and his long travels where really about him spending time with his other family.  She wants nothing more than to forget about Warren, but how can she allow innocent children to be sent to an orphanage?  If she takes them in will she ever be able to love them or will they be a constant reminder of her husband's betrayal?

Room for Hope by Kim Vogel Sawyer is a beautiful written novel.  Kim Vogel Sawyer is my favorite author and this book is the perfect example as to why I love her books!  She grabs the readers by the heartstrings.  This book told the story from different points of views and I enjoyed reading how each of the characters, including the children where dealing with their circumstances.

One of my favorite things about Mrs. Sawyers books is that she intertwines a deep faith in God in all her stories.  If you haven't read any of her books I urge you to do so.  You will be touched and encouraged!

***Thank you to for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
