This review is from: When Hope Blossoms (Paperback)
Amy Knackstedt arrives in Weaverly, Kansas in the hope of starting a new life for her three children, Adrianna, Bekah, and Parker. Sadly, her husband, Gabe, had passed away about three ago in a mysterious accident. When the authorities began asking strange questions about Gabe, Amy couldn't handle it and decided that the best thing to do was to move.
The Knackstedt's neighbor is Tim Roper, who just happens to be an ex-Old Order Mennonite himself, but he disliked the Mennonite's beliefs and he is not very thrilled about his new neighbors either. Adriana, Bekah, and Parker try to befriend their new neighbor, but Tim is determined to have nothing to do with anything that reminds him of his childhood.
Eventually, circumstances occur that throw Tim and Amy together. They become friends at first. Then they both want more, but life isn't that simple as they both have to deal with the past.
I've been a fan of Kim Vogel Sawyer for a few years now. In her newest novel, When Hope Blossoms, she once again returns to the Mennonite world, which is very interesting to be me as there is a Mennonite community in the county that I live in. The book focuses on Amy and Tim, who both have had there share of heartaches over the years and they must overcome their differences, so they can have a future as a family. The author has a great way with descriptions and dialogue. I was never bored for a second. When Hope Blossoms is a wonderful romantic novel that I recommend to all readers.
