Sweet Contemporary Story Set in an Old Order Mennonite Community
Amy Knackstedt moves with her children to Weaverly, Kansas, to escape the speculation surrounding her husband's untimely death.
She hopes the new location will provide a fresh start for them all. But her neighbor, Tim Roper, is not pleased to have a Mennonite family living next to his apple orchard. When the children try to befriend him, he resists. Tim left the Mennonite faith years ago and doesn't want any reminders of his former life. Yet Amy and Tim find their paths colliding far more than either could have foreseen. Will this tentative relationship blossom into something more?
Kim has wrote a very good book about the Mennonite people. She has found her calling because this was one of her better books. I highly recommend this book. It was a very easy read. Kim tells the story from her heart. A super book that will renew your faith! I give it 5 stars. I can't wait to see what Kim's next book will be!
About the Author:
Kim Sawyer wears many hats--hats she dons cheerfully and willingly. Some hats, such as mom to a special-needs child and long-time sufferer of chronic pain, have been worn with frustration. Hats she's found the courage to discard are the coverings of fear and shame brought about by abuse and welfare reliance.
God's miraculous hand of healing in Kim's physical and emotional life is a source of inspiration which she would like to share. Kim's gentle yet forthright testimony, interspersed with humor, lends credence to the promise of Psalm 117:2--"...great is His love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever."
