A Story of Hope and Love Set Against the Backdrop of World War II
Lydia Eldredge longs to provide sanctuary for her young son, Nicky. But a constant threat comes from Nicky's drug-addicted father, who wants the boy and seems willing to do whatever it takes to get him.
Dr. Micah Hatcher faithfully serves the immigrant population of Queens, New York. But under cover of darkness, he has a secret mission that challenges everything he thought he wanted out of life.
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?

Not only am I a fan of WWII fiction, but also of author Kim Vogel Sawyer, and have been for many years! So when one of my favorite authors writes a novel that takes place in one of my favorite eras of time, you know I would definitely be up for reviewing it! I am so glad I did.
Sweet Sanctuary is probably one of my favorite novels from Sawyer to date. I loved all the characters, felt the story flowed nicely and it was a great, quick read, perfect for a weekend of reading and a lovely cup of tea. I was immediately drawn into the storyline and my attention was kept throughout. There was even a few turns that I was not expecting but was pleasantly surprised. A great read that reminds us that God will do more then we ever think, and use us more than we ever thought, even when we doubt it.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
