From Publishers Weekly
Positioned as a gentle historical romance for lovers of Amish and Mennonite stories, this tale by inspirational Christian novelist Vogel Sawyer (My Heart Remembers) fits this description in too tidy a fashion. Set in 1872, married couple Reinhardt and Lillian Vogt decide to leave their Mennonite village of Gnadenfeld, Russia, for America rather than see their eldest son, Henrik, drafted into the military. The Vogts begin their ocean voyage along with their three sons and Reinhardt's foster brother Eli Bornholdt when the unthinkable occurs. Faced with sudden tragedy and a future in Kansas now made even more uncertain, Lillian must act quickly and decisively, and does so, but not without drawing the ire of her oldest son. With little to go on but grit, faith and loyalty to each other, these immigrants forge a new life despite obstacles both internal and external. Fans of this type of formulaic fiction won't be put off by its conclusion or its lightweight treatment of true loss and the grief that follows. Others who prefer more realism in their reads won't be as easily satisfied. (Sept.)

Sawyer brings to her readers a moving tale in Fields of Grace, based on her own unique family heritage.
Opening in Russia in the latter half of the 19th century, members of a Mennonite family are faced with one of the greatest challenges of their lives. In an effort to save their eldest son from being forced into military service on his 18th birthday, Lillian and Reinhardt Vogt face the grim reality of uprooting their family and leaving behind their close-knit community to find religious freedom in America. What they discover on their journey tests the very foundation of Lillian's faith.
Fields of Grace is a heart-touching story about what it means to be a family. Finding hope, the Vogt family rekindles faith and makes a new life in what becomes for them a true promised land. --Christian Retailing

After just recently discovering Kim Vogel Sawyer I started this series & have read all of them up to & including this one. I loved them all but this one spoke to my heart. The character Eli was so kind & loving it made me wish he were a real person because he is just the kind of person I would like to be.
But in reading I found I was at one time more like Lillian. Thank goodness I overcame that time in my life because you miss so much when you are estranged from your family. It's amazing that the Lord would have so much patience in dealing with stubborn people but I guess He sees a lot of them because there are a lot of them out there.
I am so thankful for this book because it taught me many things & I will close this review with the scripture from Hebrews that was in this book..."Be content with such things as ye have, for He hath said, I will never leave thee, or forsake thee." This says it all for me. God Bless you Kim Vogel Sawyer
but a different story and group of people. The only commonality is the fact they are all immigrants that end up in Kansas on the prairie.
Edited to add that I'd love to find out what happens with Henrick, does he find his love? Does he get to attend college?
