WEEK OF BOOKS: Sweet Sanctuary by Kim Vogel Sawyer

In the midst of WWII, two unlikely friends reunite and discover the plans that the Lord has for their lives. When Dr. Micah Hatcher receives a letter from Lydia Eldredge’s father, his world is turned upside down. Lydia had been a nurse with Micah at Schofield Station Hospital in Oahu. Now Micah is providing medical services to immigrants in New York, and Lydia is raising a son in Boston. When the sanctuary that she is trying to provide for her son is threatened, her father takes matters into his own hands and brings Micah back into Lydia’s life. When they are reunited, they become wrapped up in each other’s lives. With the two of them living separate lives so far apart and in a time of war, will their time together ever come? Or will secrets and lies keep them apart?

 I really enjoyed the book. It gave me a glimpse into what life was like in a time when the world was turned upside down by war. It was a time when the future was uncertain for everyone. The characters were full of compassion for the lost and even worked to help them when it meant the possibility of great loss to their own lives. You see the cares and challenges of the times. It is a well written story with a strong message of God's love.
