When Hope Blossoms by Kim Vogel Sawyer ~ Review

When Hope BlossomsLucie's Review: A heart-warming Mennonite read.

It has been three years since her husband died, and Amy and her children decide to make a new start in  a Mennonite Community in Kansas.
Tim is an orchard owner, and neighbor to Amy and her children. When Amy needs help promoting her memory quilting business she goes to him to help her set up a business website.

When Hope Blossoms is an enjoyable read with heart-warming characters and sweet moments of humor. I liked how all of the characters were well well developed and each of the children stood out and shone on their own uniqueness.

Bekah struggles with fitting in and being Mennonite while Tim is still healing from the death of his wife and son, and I felt that those characters especially grew throughout the course of the book.

The characters had great interaction with each other and I learned more about the Plain Mennonite lifestyle.

Overall this book was touching and engaging. And I felt that the relationships progressed naturally. I really liked how the characters felt real, because they had their flaws, but somehow that only made me like them more! A book that I would definitely recommend!

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!



  1. Thanks for sharing your review, Faye! I grew up around Mennonite folks and we were recently up in PA. and ate at one of their restaurants. Sounds like a really nice book! Blessings!
