Sweet Sanctuary by Kim Vogel Sawyer
Sweet Sanctuary by Kim Vogel Sawyer is a historical romance set during World War 2. It's a romance with a twist, actually, without giving away too much information, it is not just a quick and happily ever after story.
The main characters, Dr Micah Hatcher and Lydia Eldridge live very different lives, with passions and service in different areas. They meet (again) and share each others' problems/burdens. There is another character, Nic, who is the bad guy but turns into the good guy! The characters are sweet and kind, for the most part. It's a Christian romance, so there are references to Christianity and Godly living.
I usually like these historic romances, but truthfully I didn't really care for this one. It's an easy read, but kind of leaves you hanging in different sections, and much of it just seems unbelievable. I don't always dislike unbelievable (I AM a big fan of happy endings!!) but somehow this one just didn't hit me as great. I have read other books by this same author and enjoyed them, just not this one. Read it if you want, but I'd suggest just borrowing it, not investing in a copy.
So -- would I recommend it? It's not objectionable, just not too interesting to me. I wouldn't really recommend it -- try some of the author's other books instead!
I received a free copy of this book for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
